Énigme is an homage to the French philosopher Jacques Derrida (1930-2004). A construction of seven arches in stainless steel.

Among the references to the work of Jacques Derrida is the instrument – “piano, harp, lyre?” – that he drew during his collaboration with Peter Eisenman for Parc de la Villette; a concrete form contributed to architecture.

Each of the seven arches has its own form and they can be composed in different orders. Each series constitute a construction of its own.
