French designer Mathieu Lehanneur has created a piece of art for the Palliative Care unit of Hospital Diaconesses Croix St-Simon, in Paris. Beyond purely medical care, the hospital takes into consideration the spiritual concerns of the terminally ill and their closed ones, and wished to address the issue of time - omnipresent within its walls - in a poetic and sensitive way.

Mathieu Lehanneur's proposal is to furnish every room with a piece that offers a view of what the sky will look like on the following day. The design provides an excuse for escapism and contemplation, as well as a trigger for conversations in a place where words can be hard to find.
