Franklin D. Roosevelt Metro station, an international decor

This page was updated on: Sunday, May 26, 2019 at: 2:30 pm

Franklin D. Roosevelt Metro station, a contemporary decor

The station was named after the US President who commanded the Allied troops during WWII.

It was entirely renovated in 2011. Its decorative theme is international to pay tribute to the USA, but also as it exits by the Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées.

The second theme is modernity. Metal ceiling lamps pierced with holes lit the platforms and emphasise the black and yellow colour scheme of the tiles on the walls and vaulted ceiling.

The seats, which come in two styles, are part of this theme; contemporary bucket-style seats in dark grey metal, and standard-shaped yellow seats.

Five touch-screens, designed to accommodate temporary advertising campaigns, are placed along the platforms.

Finally, the name of the station is written not only in French, but also in different foreign languages.
