Set in the harbor of La Grande Motte, the installation faces the sea. “It guides the look towards the horizon while reminding the curves of the female body.” say the architects. “Which material to choose if not the lace, voluptuous and evocative of the senses?”

“The spheres, dressed in embroidery, open a dialogue between full and void. Indeed, the texture of the lace creates a game of shadow and light. Applied on floating spheres, it offers roundness reflexions on the water.”

“The Sensual Wave plays with water, without ever touching it, brushes it, goes away from it. As a magical moment, the ephemeral character of the installation evokes a waves that we can’t hold back.
