During the refurbishment of the Aiglon Hotel, situated in the heart of Montparnasse, the interior designer Cybèle Paluel Marmont commissioned a mosaic mural for the facade of the art deco building as well as the creation of 42 bespoke mosaics for the hotel’s 42 bathrooms. The first ten mosaics were figurative drawings inspired by the theme of the Herbes Folles from the 1930s.Each blade of grass is incrusted with tesserae that highlight the movement of the wind blowing through the leaves echoing the trees that surround the hotel on the boulevard. The last drawings were more graphic and refined: tone-one circles that represent water drops or ripples in the water linked to the theme of the mosaic on the facade.
