This pavilion was characterised by its large architectural lines underlined by lines of greenery; the central part was extended by a moving flame which symbolised the flame of the gas.

Inside the pavilion, each appliance and object was presented in a stylized frame: thus, all the water heating appliances were grouped together on the lower floor in the middle of gushing fountains; the kitchen appliances on the first floor in regional kitchen sets, while the commercial or industrial appliances were shown in operation on the upper floor by craftsmen.

A set of dioramas and a conference room formed the instructive part.
