I have a sweet spot for the rainbow-colored, kitschy plastic chairs of many Paris metro stations (see here), but I also love these variegated wood ones from the Arts et Metiers metro. The copper, steampunk style station was designed by Belgian artist Francois Schuiten and is reminiscent of the science fiction works of Jules Verne.

Meant to recreate Jules Verne's "Nautilus" from "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", the Arts & Metiers métro station is one of my favorite in Paris. What beautiful shots!
