Koelnmesse | Das Haus by Studio Truly Truly

In fact, the team will be presenting this year’s Das Haus – or Interiors on Stage.Created with artistic vision, every year the Das Haus space is designed by a nominated architect or designer and is meant to provide a platform for the designer’s personal vision of beauty and function, answering how people might live ideally.

This year, Truly Truly has created a space called Living by Moods. Emphasizing changing schedules and needs, this home has a sense of organic flow and within there are special zones: Reclusive, Serene, Active and Reclining. This space and the entire Das Haus project is considered experimental as a whole, and interestingly enough this year’s design focused on the beauty of flux, the ever-changing dynamism of our daily lives. We love the modular furniture, dramatic light fixtures, intersecting lines and variety of layering materials, particularly the airy juxtaposition of open space and light, partitions and natural and manmade texures.

We are also captiavted by simpler projects such as that of young British designer Joe Smith of the young talents content. An interest in exaggerated form paired with craftsmanship and  industrial material drives this designer’s aesthetic and production. For this extraordianry chair, the designer was inspired in part by the construction of trains and bridges in the North of England, thus the cubic form and use of bolts.

As we can see, the young talents competition is one of the most interesting resources for finding innovative technical projects that marry beautiful design with materials.

INDO’s lush geometry of the Ikat Credenza is a wonderfully designed project. This piece plays with the variability of the Kat fabric on a curvilinear classical form of the iconic modernist furniture profile of a mid-century modern tambour credenza, creating a sense of movement.

Koelnmesse | Tobias Grau

German lighting designer Tobias Grau synthesizes artistic form with technological innovation to create unexpected yet sculptural formats. Headed by the designer and based in Hamburg, a holistic philosophy guides the process of making modern artistic lighting.  This series of lamps is one of my favorite IMM pieces.

IMM| Mor Dogan | Piggo Modular Furniture

Last but not least is another Young Talent innovator -this modular furniture piece was designed by Mor Dogan for children’s waiting rooms. Inspired by her nephew who had to spent time in doctor’s office she wanted to bridge this often boring and stressful experience by creating a line of furnishings that approached design, usefulness and well-being.

Leaders in Contemporary Design – Laskasas from Portugal

LK - AM_OUTUBRO - 05

Laskasas is a Portuguese furnishings and home décor company distinguished by a sense of modernist style with a twist.

Emphasis on sculptural design, ornate yet refined materials and a depth of texture and color mark the aesthetic of this innovative company. Every space and item has an opulent warmth to it without sacrificing style and originality. Understated rich color and curvilinear forms are ever present.

Contemporary Design: Innovative Meets Tradition

 Where do you see Portugal in terms of the design world? 

Portugal is a small country of great talents, including the art of making stunning and innovating design pieces. Many brands are now producing their own designs and therefore continuing the legacy of Portuguese craftsmanship therefore creating truly remarkable products capable of adapting to any style of décor. I believe that the main inspiration comes from Italian furniture design but always with a modern twist, prevailing the noble materials and exclusive finishes. And that’s really what puts Portugal on the front row in the design world.

A Contemporary Palace in London by Rafael de Cárdenas with Boca do Lobo

A luxurious glimpse of the Manuel Cabinet by Boca do Lobo in an impossibly beautiful modern London home designed by Rafael De Cárdenas.

As many of you know, we adore the inventions of European luxury design innovators, and love the design fairs and trade shows the most of everything we do. Our taste is varied but we have an affection for interiors and pieces that mix historic narratives with contemporary sensibility and luxury materials.

After all, it’s not just the richness of the visual experience, but it’s about real artistic talent and skill as it takes a certain orchestration and sense of daring and order as well to combine eclectic elements like ornate decoration, modern lines, historic spaces……

And so New York designer Rafael De Cárdenas’ design of the Glebe Place Residence, London achieves just this, taking traditional Portuguese pieces with the most modern elements to create a livable yet gorgeous space that takes our breath away.

 

DiningRoom, Luxury, LuxuryHome, ManuelineStyle, BocadoLobo, RafaeldeCárdenas, Interior Design, Decor, Contemporaryhome, ModernHome

 

This stunningly luxurious home has six bedrooms, and three dining areas and is decorated with an understated palette of Portland limestone, hardwood and other natural surface materials. The designer uses metallic accents and brights to lend a regal sensibility while also echoing the most contemporary of aesthetics.

A beautiful light colored table with soft furnishings graces the room, accented unexpectedly by the floral wallpaper in classic colors and shades.

Like so many of Boca do Lobo’s artwork pieces that are also absolutely functional, in the grandest of ways,  the D. Manuel cabinet is made with a copper leaf finish surface and an elegant black lacquer gradient. Handcrafted traditional solid mahogany legs are artfully finished in high gloss black lacquer. The design reflects the decorative traditions of Manueline Style, a composite Portuguese style of architectural ornamentation with elements of maritime motifs, named after King Manuel I of Portugal who was known for his support of Portuguese maritime exploration.

Décor Trends – Innovative Gray Living Room Ideas

Searching for gray living room ideas? Looking for a way to add depth and update your space? Paint walls in a pale dove gray, add brownish toned grey furnishings to act as a canvas for your modern furnishings, floor coverings, and surreal porcelain collection. Add Asian inspired artwork for a palatial feel.

 

Gray Living Room Ideas

 

Gray is a hue that is edgy and reminds one of the splendor and evocative wear of Gustavian style castles, the patina of time seems stylish and elegant. Much of this color’s popularity seemed to take off after designer Abigail Ahren’s dark colour palette took the world by storm, and inspired many a decorator and discerning homeowner to look for these smoky tones and gray living room ideas in particular. After all, gray works well in contemporary spaces as well, particularly as an industrial décor touch, or as a way of layering a more traditional space.

Innovative Gray Living Room Ideas – No. 1 – White with Gray

 

Gray Living Room Ideas

Boca do Lobo

Pure white is a classic colour for floors and walls, and layering grays brings warmth and elegance to your space. When choosing grays vary the hues, and allow multiple textures to emerge.

In this room, the fireplace embellishments contrast beautifully with the soft gray carpet. The beauty of this room is in part to the curated arrangement of details from different eras, blending stories and history together.

 

Gray Living Room Idea – No. 2 – A Gray that is Almost Green

Traditional style and elegance is truly evoked with this old world palette, and the warmth of leather, wood and texture come together beautifully. Natural light accents the depth of color.

Not to be missed Pullcast’s Jewelry Hardware at Maison & Objet 2018

Maison & Objet is usually one of my favorite events of the year, particularly when it comes to seeing daring collaborations between artisans, artists and designers. This year the exhibit premieres a fascinating limited line of hardware that looks like jewelry –Pullcast’s Limited Collection with Feu. The gorgeously sumptuous  hardware uses Swarovski crystals. The Tiffany Quartz hardware piece has a sense of sculptural intricacy that is typical of Pullcast’s luxuriously artistic hardware. Much of the company’s work has a modernist abstract quality to it all the while reflecting the strange and beautiful textures and shapes from the modern world.

Muuto -Leading Talent in Contemporary Design

tabletop, trays, vases, decor, minimalist, modern decor, contemporary furniture, trends in decorLoft Chair by Thomas Bentzen and Platform Tray designed Sam Hecht

 

One can spend hours looking at the sculptural pieces by the fine designers of Muuto, an innovative and visionary Scandinavian design company offering furniture and decorative accessories that are distinguished by a graceful beauty.

 

Imagine the unfurled leaf shiny surface down, creating a well of space, like a human palm, the matte color of this underside subtle and full of shadow, color rich yet tonal, the quiet of a forest floor.

 

This is how the organic shape of many of Muuto’s pieces seem to evolve, texture and form orchestrated to become functional, understated, light weight, and sculptural. So many of the pieces seem a marriage of manmade architectural beauty and biomorphic shaping….coming together to create form  that one cannot help but respond to….

 

It is with great pleasure that I share my short interview with Christian Grosen, Director of Design at Muuto.

 

Christian, the Muuto designs have an architectural sensibility to them, particularly the furniture, and yet almost every piece is distinguished by an attention to texture, can you tell me how these elements are woven so beautifully together? Is there a certain process to make functional items so usable and so beautiful? 

Christian Grosen…It’s the result of a close dialogue between Muuto’s creative team and the external designers. From the very beginning of a project we are aware of balancing the contemporary and the lasting qualities of a given design. A design must live up to our design values which also touches upon an architectural appearance and attention to detail and material.

Who do you find to be the most inspiring in terms of historic designers? 

I’m a great fan of Jean Prouvé. He somehow managed to create his own unique and absolutely stunning design universe. The Danish designer Poul Kjærholm is also one of my idols. I had the pleasure of working on his designs together with his widow Hanne Kjærholm when I was at Fritz Hansen. She taught me how to achieve beauty and logic in a design through understanding the character of materials.

In what ways do natural materials inform your aesthetic? 

Each material has its own character. I think it’s important to understand the material and to use it in the right way where aesthetics, function, quality and price become a coherent whole.

 

 

Muuto shootWorkshop Chair designed by Cecilie Manz

 

Most interesting series or project? 

I’m very proud of the Workshop Chair by Cecilie Manz. It’s an archetypical wooden chair – cool, contemporary and attractive, yet lasting in its appearance. I’m sure it will be in the collection for decades due to it’s high level of craftmanship and inherent lasting qualities.

 

 

 

 

And as for yourself Christian — may I ask -did you always make things or design -when you were a child for example -what was your first creative memory? 

Always…I remember building all kinds of stuff in the workshop in my parents basement. I grew up on a large brewery which was a great playground and inspiration for a kid. I remember I found scrap metal and wood in the brewery’s containers and build my own imaginary machines and constructions. There were always an aesthetic hierarchy in the way I used the materials – indirectly I guess it’s more or less the same I do today.
