A Latin riddle in the form of a palindrome illuminates the stairway of this London home renovated by interior designer Francis Sultana and architect Thomas Croft. The installation, a piece by conceptual artist Cerith Wyn Evans, reads “In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni,” which loosely translates to “We Go Round and Round in the Night and are Consumed by Fire” The riddle’s subject is largely believed to be a moth.
