The Kiosque des Noctambules, designed by French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel, is a unique and colorful entrance to the Palais Royal – Musée du Louvre metro station in Paris, France.

The entrance consists of two glass and aluminum structures resembling giant peacock feathers or shells. These structures are adorned with vibrant colored glass beads and are illuminated from within, creating a striking and whimsical effect, especially at night
