Referencing the literary classic: ‘twenty thousand leagues under the sea’ by Jules Verne, the fish market in Lévis, Québec city called Némeau has been designed by Montreal based interior designer Jean De Lessard.

Using the adventure novel as a tool for inspiration, the interior concept during the creative process was the method to add value to the products and attract customers to the variety of fish and shellfish- using exploration and discovery.

The products are presented on top of white, asymmetric tables topped with ice and a delicate open glass casing- like a jewelry box. Shaped like icebergs, these cases can be filled with water to keep shellfish like lobsters alive and fresh. Meanwhile, they are randomly articulated around a circulation axis, inviting customers to walk around and peer in.

Additionally, the interiors have a visual focus on a sculptural glass ceiling. Shaped like prisms and colored in shades of blue, the decorative element represents the refraction of light onto differing depths of the ocean.

Partially wrapping the ceiling, it seamlessly extends down to one of the walls to form shelving and become a practical way to maximize storage space.
