The project, Comet Meetings, launched by Victor Tile, Maxime Albertus and Nicholas Findling, has seen the light of day because they have "organized, experienced and suffered a significant number of seminars", they say, and have found that their work environment had a negative impact on the outcome of the meetings.

The first place of life, a large library, and it highlights the face of a bearded man in the red cap similar to the famous commandant Cousteau. The work, carried out with 1000 books dirty to watercolor, has a little bit of a hipster but casual. "This environment encourages the customers to different groups to say hello," jokes Victor Tile.

The second place of life, filled with the latest work, is less studious. More prone to parties where cocktails abound, it is inspired by the "speakeasy" bars illegal very prevalent during prohibition in the United States.
