Ephemere Square, a young company created in 2015, innovates on the temporary event spaces market with the ambition to make the event aesthetic and sustainable. Ephemere Square offers a concept of design, flexible and environmental friendly structures for any events: Booths for fairs and congress, public events, brand events and pop up stores. Like a giant Lego® game, and thanks to a patented concept, the standard elements fit together offering both great flexibility and limitless creativity. This solution was designed to facilitate design and construction with a particular requirement on aesthetics. The frame is enriched and personalized thanks to their catalog: partitions, floors, roofs, furniture, accessories. The possibilities are limitless! The Ephemere Square concept was designed to avoid structural element waste after the event. They REUSE everything and restore and repair when necessary. Their wood is from France (Massif central and Haute Savoie) and is certified FSC / PEFC.
