Ducks Scéno (Stylized as dUCKS scéno) is a French company based in Villeurbanne specializing in scenography and museography.[1]

History[edit]

Ducks Scéno was created in 1991 as a cooperative with 22 members, 18 of which are partners, who work as scenographers, mechanical engineers, audiovisual engineers, and architects.

Artistic concepts[edit]

Ducks Scéno strives to develop three concepts in particular in its work: asymmetry, natural light, and openness to the surrounding city.[2]

Projects[edit]

The company has collaborated with renowned architects such as Jean Nouvel, Rem Koolhaas, and the architecture firm of Herzog & de Meuron.

Large-scale scenographic projects developed by Ducks Scéno include the Philharmonie de Paris, with Jean Nouvel;[3] the Elbphilharmonie, with Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron; the Casa da Música; the Taipei Performing Art Center with OMA; and the Fondation Louis-Vuitton, with Frank Gehry.[4]
