Station Motte
L’aménagement de ce quai a été réalisé dans les années 1970-80 selon des principes mis au point en 1974 par Paul Andreu, architecte, et Joseph-André Motte, designer.
Pour améliorer le confort des voyageurs, l’éclairage est rationnalisé, et le carrelage blanc revient après les errements tout-orange du début des années 1970.
La couleur est utilisé en complément du blanc de base au débouché des couloirs de correspondance, au pied des sièges et sur la barre d’éciairage. Bleu, jaune, vert, rouge, vlolet, orange... chaque quai possède sa dominante. Ainsi les voyageurs peuvent-ils instinctivement le reconnaitre, même sans y penser.
Plus Confortables que les bancs en bois des origines, les stèges coques dessinés par Motte complètent cet aménagement en accord avec la couleur dominante du quai.

metro history

Motte station
The layout of this wharf was carried out in the 1970s and 80s according to principles developed in 1974 by architect Paul Andreu, , and designer Joseph-André Motte, .
To improve passenger comfort, the lighting is rationalized, and the white tiles return after the all-orange errings of the early 1970s.
The color is used in addition to the basic white at the end of the connecting corridors, at the foot of the seats and on the light bar. Blue, yellow, green, red, vlolet, orange ... each platform has its dominant. So travelers can instinctively recognize it, even without thinking about it.
More comfortable than the original wooden benches, the hull stalls designed by Motte complete this arrangement in accordance with the dominant color of the quay.
