Meaning “cloud” in French, NUAGE is a canteen serving food designed to nourish the mind, body and soul while injecting fun and colour into the act of eating out. Inspiration for this space was derived from French Brothers, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. They are known for their simple, curvaceous products. Nuage is a modular form made up of eight circles and an outline, creating a cloud like shape. The modules can be interconnected as desired, to create a beehive structure.

The brothers have re-imagined the Nuage form many times throughout their career, it has been scaled up as big as an outdoor shelter structure and scaled down as small as Pasta. The Nuage vase informed the design of the canteen through repetition, distortion and scale. Scaling down, the beehive like pattern was used to create a repeated bronze metal mesh, serving as a concealed and mysterious façade to the canteen. Scaling up, sheer material hangs from the ceiling in circles to emulate the shape once again, creating the feeling of walking under a colossal sized vase as the contents spill out onto the walls and floor. While the softness of the sheer material retains the cloud like sensation.

Meaning “joy” in French, JOYEUX is Adelaide’s newest wellness centre by The World Health Organisation(WHO). WHO work tirelessly across the board with health issues, one of which being mental health. In recent years, there has been increasing acknowledgement of the important role mental health plays in achieving global development goals.
