An Idyllic Space
Mel Lim’s Elysian concept reveals an idyllic space where creatives, thinkers, dreamers, poets, artists, builders, visionaries and others can come together to create. The design encompasses two floors and reveals a play of light and shadows, and basic shapes, the fundamental building blocks of architecture and ideas.
Welcome To The Elysian
MEL LIM'S METAVERSE ATELIER
This blissful, ethereal space feels almost too perfect for this world. It was born of a dream and encompasses the essence of multiple inspirations including the panoramic cinematography of the movie Dune, the Stein Salon at 27 Rue de Fleurus and creator Mel Lim’s own love for the desert. It is to the desert that artists and mystics have long retreated to meditate and gain inspiration and insight. It is there that the warmth of the sun lights us up to the truth of ourselves.
AN IMAGINED EXPERIENCE
The name Elysian finds its roots in classical mythology and is incorporated throughout literature, from the works of Shakespeare to 18th Century British writers, and on up to present day. It denotes paradisiacal dreamscapes where mythological heroes immortalized by the gods or even mere mortals could immerse themselves and know pure bliss.
Open and inviting, the space is imbued with soft pink and peach pastels, and a splash of gold to evoke a light, airy, sophisticated sensibility. Artwork installations from Preston and Harrison appear throughout the space.
