“The labyrinth can not be seen at one glance and the red poppies sway in the light breeze. The natural element that this installation is dedicated to is the air. The labyrinth develops a path of 200 meters; 500 plants of Photinia x fraserii with an average height of 180 cm accompany the visitor to discover the Bouquet of Poppies Hanging created by Alain Micquiaux.”
At the wind garden of Notre Dame de Monts are installed for six months the Morpho Butterflies.
Butterflies are linked in pairs suspended as mobiles in a subtle balance to a blade of giant grass. Animated by the currents of the wind, they rock towards each other in an incessant parade.
The Bouquet of Poppies Suspendus is a lover of the great spaces … But not only!
With another look, in the more intimate perspectives of a garden, the Poppies mingle in the verdure, in the bends of a grove or with the branches of the trees. They elegantly enhance a garden and embellish it with its shimmering colors.
This does not prevent the Bouquet of Poppies Suspended from growing. From now on, the installation consists of about thirty different sizes of flowers!
For your own green spaces, a new version of Coquelicot “girouette”, of another format, will soon be available in the shop.

Creation of a dynamic structure which, by its presence in the very heart of the Wind Garden of Notre Dame de Monts in the Vendée, transforms a space and a moment.
In the innovative use of new technologies combined with art craftsmanship, I aim to inspire with a lightness in form, beauty of structure, and grace in movement.
The strategic position of this sculpture invites visitors to materialize the displacements of the air through the movements of a supple and light material.
The Lycra, a fabric with exceptional properties, makes this architecture of the air alive. It allows pure and light shapes to deform with the wind, while keeping the memory of the initial shape.
Under the velum at the center of the garden, an open, marine-inspired installation aims to create contact with the force of the
wind by transfer with sails exposed to the four winds. In aesthetics games and learning.
Great first “world” the Kulmino water tower will be decorated with three large 50-meter-long banners. This exploit is the creation of ALAIN MICQUIAUX associated with MICHEL BOUCARD, child of the country. Kulmino,the spectacular viewpoint at Notre Dame de Monts
Born of an association between ALAIN MICQUIAUX and EOLIA CONCEPT, the project “the sails of the kulmino” was realized in 3 months only, in the spirit of the organization of the festival A Tout Vent and at the request of the community of municipalities Océan-Marais de Monts. For the inauguration of the Festival, on July 2, 2010, we imagined and realized this installation visible for miles.
This installation is a tribute to the elements.
The AIR, in its freedom, gives life to the sails and draws attention to the building that contains WATER. The most valuable resource.
