A French company offers a tribute to Paris' most famous landmark by constructing an Eiffel Tower replica made of 324 red garden chairs.
The City of Paris agreed to host the unusual sculpture next to the monument that inspired it.
Bernard Reybier, CEO of the company behind the installation, said the father of the real tower would have appreciated the gesture.
Bernard: ‘I'm convinced that Gustave Eiffel who said iron is the material of ideas, to show the infinite creative potential of the material would of been pleased with this nod to him. He would be happy that 125 years later his tower would be so widely criticised was accepted in a Parisian landscape, as a landmark of French identity.’
The installation will remain in place until 7th July and will be later transferred to an as yet undisclosed location in Paris.
