Hennessy asks Mathilde Jonquière for a mosaic floor creation of green marble, in collaboration with Claire Munier who designed the garden with Mediterranean plants. The chromatic polyphony of the mosaic comes to vibrate the bright floor in a dynamic volume depending on the perspective. Subtle and graphic, Mathilde Jonquière has been inspired by the flow of the water and the notion of mixture in her interpretation of the Winter Garden’s environment. The artist has created stunning «green waves» in relation with the Charente, this particular River which is at the heart of the Cognac fabrication process. Sometimes mat, shinny or satin depending on its polish level, the mosaic waves as the daylight and the point of view change, bringing a permanent spectacle.
