Tia Thuy Nguyen has become the first Vietnamese designer to have her artwork put on display as part of the prestigious art collection at the Château La Coste.
The installation piece is titled the Silver Room and has a height of 16.2 metres, a width of 6 metres, and length of 14.9 metres.
The artwork takes its inspiration from Rong houses located in the Central Highlands region of Vietnam.
Designer Tia Thuy Nguyen spent a total of two years between 2016 and 2018 completing the artwork. It took her 10 months to gather the materials needed such as silver, stone, wood, and bamboo before being able to complete the room.
Silver Room is a unique site-specific installation made from natural materials amid the hilltops of Aix en Provence in France.
Every single part of the design has been tied together using rope, with no nails being used at all.
At the centre of the room is a white quartz stone statue of Buddha.
Through the exhibition, designer Tia Thuy Nguyen hopes to bring a part of Vietnamese culture and spirit to the rest of the world.
