Architectural medallions

Built for tenants that cannot settle, daydreamers, clouds hunters, stars stalkers and for your ever-evolving mood, these removable and interchangeable medallions explore an undiscovered territory in your house. 

This collection of wall and ceiling medallions wants to weave stories between design, sculpture and architecture. It has been built from the memories of clear summer nights staring at the sky in Brittany, the Alps or the epic scenery of the Scottish highlands. Far from the city when the only lights are the one from the stars. Back in the city, it is in observatories we pretend this memory is still alive.

Intérieur polaire

By Adeline Duong

My ceiling is the sky opened to the rest of the world – my ceiling is digging under my eyes.

I will put the medallion in the centre to fix my thoughts.
I will take my bed for a solitary island and this solitary island for a heavy ice floe. On the ice, we see the images better. Lying down on a planetarium floor like a kid, alone. I will do an angel in my head. Arms and legs stretched out.

I will not move until the medallion closes on my brain. Gentle and in spirit. Geometric and structure-less fascination. The contour of each dream will bear my imprint, and will not: I will let myself be overpassed by the images. I will step over them progressively as I observe. I will be really here. Lying down all along.

The medallion will turn white to black to navy blue – one colour at the time.

Me, I will continue to stay awake inside the dream, screwed to what does not exist yet.
