Called ‘The Studio’, the room was officially presented by its designers Adrien Gadet and Benjamin Lina from Studio Quetzal, in the presence of Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, and Marie-Claude Beaud, Director of the New National Museum of Monaco.
The Studio boasts a range of new technologies including digital screens, video projector, and even a digital drill. It is built of cork and glass, inspired by archaeological sites and in keeping with the purpose of the room as a place for research and experimentation.
