Their designed rooms evoke reminiscence of a summer holiday in France: the artist duo Superpoly presents a vivid interior with their project “Postcard from Superpoly”, that captures the Mediterranean attitude in artistic form and colour.



 

Etage Projects is an art and design gallery based in Copenhagen that specialises in working with interdisciplinary artists, and questions the current models of design practice and exhibitions.

Superpoly from Hyères on the French Riviera, whose projects are a mixture of interior design, graphics, and decoration, is such an interdisciplinary artist duo. Their design, choice of colours, and design language are influenced by their geographical and climatic location in France. They often find their mostly obsolete materials at flea markets and place them in the context of the present. The objects are individual pieces that the pair paint, glue and arrange in a creative way.



 

The design of the constructed rooms is reminiscent of summer holiday homes with bright, lively colours, and sparse but useful furnishings. The “Postcard from Superpoly” project reflects a certain carefree and naive approach with its cloud-like painted walls and cushions with motifs of sea creatures. The duo used ceramics, wood, textiles and various souvenirs from previous holidays in southern France. The ceramics in particular have a kitsch feel about them, but at the same time, provide inspiration from contemporary art. Their idea is to represent the philosophy of the art of the Côte d’Azur – not to reflect it in a nostalgic way, but to capture its energy.
