Forms and materials reconnect with elements to be in line with Mother Earth. As shamans, designers call upon the magic of spirits and supernatural forces. ReWild Yourself. And this is the inspiration for the theme at the Observatoire. This seasonal theme is declined in three modes: the film Inspirations, the course and the Inspirations book.
For François Bernard, designer of Space Inspirations, the “wild” theme has emerged as a synthesis of two current trends, the soft and raw, crude and sophisticated. The idea is to get out of our comfort zone to ask us about our place in the living, in order to find the broken link between man and nature through disciplines as diverse as the arts, gastronomy, the lifestyle, cosmetics and decorative arts.
Space Inspiration opens with the original idea of the wild, with the evocation of the deep forest. It continues with the idea of a savagery of the city in its interstices, but also in the architecture of residential and commercial landscapes. Finally, the last section of the exhibition deals with a more spiritual dimension of the theme around the sacred and the ritual.
Colors that revolve around the brown, yellow and green-blue, natural materials such as cotton or wool, “with highlights effects” are on the program of this space inspirations located down the hall 7.
