The caves of Lascaux, in the department of Dordogne at Montignac, UNESCO listed heritage since 1979, constitute one of the most important archaeological finds of the 20th century.

The new Centre International de l’Art Pariétal now offers visitors from all over the world the chance to see the cave paintings in an striking reproduction of the caverns, for an immersive experience in a totally replicated setting.


The new construction is the result of a multidisciplinary effort involving the set design studio Casson Mann and the architects of the firms Snøhetta and SRA.


For the furnishings of the offices, the museum shop and the reception area, the architects and their clients have chosen modular systems by USM Haller.

Thanks to their flexibility, these furnishing systems can be configured in a functional way and modified to meet new needs as they arise. Their timeless design and remarkable durability make them a perfect choice for situations of intensive use.
