He originally created the piece with the intention of displaying it in the Palliative Care Unit of the Croix-Saint-Simon Hospital Group. Weather information is gathered in real time online, then the image of the sky is diffused through a honeycomb structure.

As he explains on his public talk on TED, Lehanneur is inspired by science and its ability to deeply investigate the human being — our ways of working, and our ways of feeling.

His background is in Industrial Design, and when he opened his first studio in 2001 it was dedicated to industrial design and interior architecture.  Soon after, he developed a passion for interactions between people and their environment; living systems and the scientific world.
