“Back to Basics” forma parte de Virtual Design Destination, una acción que organiza la galería online Adorno y que este año ha mostrado virtualmente al mundo catorce muestras de diseño de catorce países diferentes durante el London Design Festival Bajo la temática “The New Reality”. La colección española “Back to basics”  de Adorno se inspira en el momento de reflexión creado por la pandemia para explorar un camino hacia lo básico y el diseño sostenible.  Está comisariada por la periodista Ana Domínguez Siemens  y formada por obras de Álvaro Catalán de Ocón, Belén Moneo, Inés Sistiaga, Inma Bermúdez, Júlia Esqué, Lucas Muñoz, Martí Guixé, Mayice Studio, Studio La Cube, Studio todo to do, y Tornasol Studio. Y ha contado con el patrocinio del Museo Nacional de Arte Romano de Mérida, Accion Cultural Española y Dekton by Cosentino.

“Back to Basics nace tras esta experiencia que nos ha obligado a parar, reflexionar y descubrir las infinitas posibilidades que nos pueden proporcionar las cosas más simples, las cosas básicas. Back to Basics  fue algo que ocurrió de forma natural, fue una sensación de huir de cualquier cosa artificial o ‘fantástica’, sentí la necesidad de mirar más a lo humano, más al trabajo en la tierra.”En general son piezas que reutilizan elementos ya existentes o que introducen innovación dentro de una técnica tradicional. Es una forma de experimentar el diseño desde un momento de reflexión, de parar y observar lo que nos es afín, lo que tenemos a mano, sin precipitaciones, sin grandes gestos

Ana Domínguez Siemens. Periodista y comisaria de la exposición

“Back to Basics” que pudo verse un el domingo 20 septiembre de una forma virtual, con las obras suspendidas sobre unos zócalos realizados por Cosentino con su revolucionario producto Dekton. Si no lo pudistéis ver, aquí os dejamos un pequeño avance. Podéis verla completa en la web del evento. Y, además todas las piezas están a la venta en la galería digital Adorno. especializada en  diseño coleccionable y artesanía,  encargó a catorce comisarios  que reflexionaran sobre experiencias, pensamientos y temas concretos acerca del “parón” para plasmarlo posteriormente en sus colecciones nacionales. El objetivo es que el diseño se convierta en herramienta para el cambio y aporte resultados e innovadoras soluciones a la nueva realidad.

Os muestro aquí a los diseñadores españoles seleccionados y sus proyectos:

Inés Sistiaga: Trip Collection

En esta colección Inés explora el color y la materialidad de la lana en composiciones gráficas que no representan más que los movimientos de sus manos mientras garabatea intuitivamente. Ella los ve como pinturas rápidas que se traducen cuidadosamente en hilo; líneas que pertenecen a movimientos de la mano escaladas a tapices textiles. Compara la creación de estos paneles con un paseo sin destino. Esta falta de rigor desaparece cuando empieza a hacerlos, los mechones en su estudio de Madrid con una pistola de hilo. El esfuerzo físico y la concentración que requiere este proceso, le parece un mantra. El sonido y el movimiento de la máquina, la velocidad y la tensión del hilo, y los límites dibujados a mano que marcan la composición, son el motivo de este viaje simbiótico entre ella y la máquina. Hecho a mano con lana de oveja holandesa teñida naturalmente. Acabado con lana “Latxa” del País Vasco.

Lucas Muñoz Tubular Chair (Edición especial)

Producida con conductos de ventilación y conectores estándar, además de una pieza de cuero colgante, esta edición única ha sido ilustrada por Antigoon, un street artist holandés. Lucas Muñoz

Álvaro Catalán de Ocón. ACdO. CU. Ceramic Vases

“CU”, es una colección de piezas creadas en cerámica, cobre y sílice con una técnica innovadora donde, como una especie de alquimia, cada pieza se transforma en un nuevo objeto en el que los colores y las líneas que lo adornan emergen de forma absolutamente única a través del proceso de cocción. Álvaro Catalán

Júlia Esqué. Narciso Mirror

Narciso” es tanto un espejo funcional como lúdico, ofrece nuevas dimensiones dentro de su interacción. Inspirado en los espejos biselados, tiene cinco planos separados. En consecuencia, cada cara interpreta una nueva realidad, reflejando vistas impredecibles del entorno. Hecho de una placa de acero inoxidable doblada, pulida en la parte delantera y cepillada mate en la parte trasera. Proyecto encargado por el Estudio Reisinger.

Martí Guixé. Respect Cheap Furniture  (Respetar los muebles baratos)  (7/50)

Silla de plástico monobloque de Turquía, pintura acrílica, inscrita con un marcador: Respect Cheap Furniture. Edición limitada de 50 +5 ap. Cada uno firmado y numerado. Marti Guixe

Studio La Cube: Trigo Perro Roca R4

Dicen Stefano Fusani y Clara Hernáncez:  ¿Alguien conoce a la naturaleza?.

La naturaleza que nos rodea diariamente es, o naturaleza humanizada (intervenida, afectada), o falsa naturaleza (creada directamente): cada estado revela una profunda y antigua domesticación del mundo, una adaptación y modelización de éste para las necesidades o ambiciones humanas. Tal vez por esta razón, la naturaleza bruta siempre se ha percibido como sublime y aterradora; todo lo que queda fuera del entorno domus se convierte en un inquietante “otro”. La humanidad necesita domesticarla y darle una función según las reglas de la racionalidad.

El terror y la sublimidad de la naturaleza desconocida sólo sirve para alimentar el misterio del mundo, para crear mitos literarios y dioses incontrolables. El positivismo exige explicación y función. Lo que todo en el mundo sigue el ejemplo del trigo, el perro, la cebada, la cabra, las rosas. El pan, la leche, la compañía, la belleza. Démosle una función y para ello no las tomamos como tales, no esculpimos: hacemos rocas, cambiamos su genética para disponer de ellas a nuestro gusto y necesidad. Hagamos rocas de objetos humanos, hagamos paños. Lleguemos al extremo, convirtamos los minerales en rocas domésticas, que buscan una función, para satisfacer el papel que les hemos asignado. Funcionalidad, belleza, compañía.

Seamos domésticos, comportémonos. Studio La Cuve

Tornasol Studio. Drift Armchair

Inés LLasera y Guillermo Trapiello han  ideado El sillón “Drift” es el resultado de la exploración de nuevas formas de representar la identidad náutica y el verano, construido a partir de diferentes elementos y materiales característicos del mar. Las boyas inflables sirven como respaldo y apoyabrazos de esta pieza. Ensambladas con una construcción ágil y un sistema mecánico, las boyas se insertan en la estructura de tubos metálicos. Tornasol Studio

Inma BermúdezAnother Nature

Esta poética serie de platos ha sido decorada con un lenguaje gráfico contemporáneo: por eso la colección se  Another Nature. Evoca, de hecho, una forma diferente de ver el mundo que nos rodea. La cuidadosa elección de los motivos se basa en una atenta investigación de los ricos archivos del atelier de Este Ceramiche; los animales y las flores, típicos del reconocido patrimonio de  Este Ceramiche porcelana han sido retratados en los platos con un ritmo inesperado para recrear escenas fantásticas. El delicado uso del dorado enriquece la percepción de la vajilla con sus brillantes destellos.

Another Nature es un proyecto desarrollado junto con la firma italiana Este Ceramiche en el marco del proyecto Doppia Firma, que reúne la innovación del diseño europeo y la tradición de la gran artesanía y está creando una colección única de objetos originales y refinados. Se venden individualmente. Cuatro colores disponibles: azul con pez, verde con caballo, marrón con perro y rojo con pájaro. Inma Bermúdez

Studio Todo to do. Obreras Vases

Las hermanas Elena Y Selina Feduchi,  han creado “Obreras” una colección de jarrones hechos con desechos de construcción encontrados en las calles.

La planta que nace de los escombros. Lo aparentemente frágil supera lo irrompible. ¿Por qué un jarrón se asocia con lo femenino? ¿Por qué el trabajo de construcción se asocia a lo masculino? De este contexto, traemos materiales y objetos de las obras de construcción, fríos y anodinos, al contrario, el mundo cálido y afectuoso del jarrón. Proponemos una vuelta de tuerca cambiando completamente el uso por defecto de los materiales de construcción. Studio Todo to do

Belén Moneo. Emérita Shelf

El diseño de la estantería de Emérita se enmarca dentro del proyecto REmix Vol.5 diseñadas en colaboración con BD Barcelona Design.La transparencia de los estantes de plexiglás (nuestro material característico) nos permite ver un bosque de columnas de madera. La rotundidad y solidez de este elemento se magnifica, revelando todas sus poderosas cualidades. Al mismo tiempo, la suspensión y rotación de las columnas, que parecen flotar, desafiando la gravedad, jugando con la percepción del espectador, y aligerando la pieza. Belen Moneo

Mayice Studio. Anello. Edición limitada

Anello”, un diseño de iluminación de círculos concéntricos que proyectan la luz, llenando el espacio en tres dimensiones. Los efectos de luz adornan el espacio en sus parámetros horizontales y verticales. Los tres brazos de aluminio pueden ser ajustables y movibles. Hechos a mano en España con vidrio soplado, aluminio, metal y tecnología LED.  Mayice

The next generation of interior designers is utterly thriving in the modern design world. With the freshest interior design ideas and the most creative minds, the names that we are about to mention are pushing the boundaries of beauty and leaving their mark when it comes to 2021 trends. Let’s meet them!

“Life is more beautiful and more livable when nothing is perfect,” says Nozawa, who founded her firm, Noz Design, in 2014. “I like deliberate imperfection, deliberate asymmetry, and messing things up a bit.”

“Everything in a room should be essential, and the space should have a story, with furnishings and art pulled from what the clients enjoy or what has been passed down to them.”

When it comes to boho modern design interiors by Hamilton—a self-styled “environmental curator”—it’s a jungle in there. “Plants are a super-identifiable part of my aesthetic, but the foundation is always modern and clean-lined,” says the rising star, who got her start in the health-care industry, a job that demanded wellness-conscious furnishings, palettes, and, yes, plants.

Homo Faber Guide es una plataforma digital dedicada a la artesanía fina en Europa que ha creado la Fundación Michelangelo para la Creatividad y la Artesanía y estará operativa desde el 17 de septiembre de 2020

La Homo Faber Guide funciona como un sofisticado buscador on line, que descubre artesanos, talleres, museos, galerías y experiencias relacionadas con el mundo de la artesanía fina en toda Europa. Un portal que conecta a apasionados del arte, coleccionistas, clientes, galerías, viajeros curiosos y diseñadores con diferentes maestros artesanos de toda Europa

Si quieres descubrir las ciudades europeas a través de sus propios métiers d’art  diferentes oficios en talleres seleccionados y conocer las recomendaciones de expertos del mundo del arte, la creatividad y el diseño. Eres  diseñador, arquitecto o artista que busca colaborar con un artesano, galerista o coleccionista que busca objetos únicos. O un joven talento que busca descubrir cosas, nuevas esta es tu guía.

He tenido la oportunidad de colaborar con la Fundación, de la que soy una gran apasionada. Este verano he podido de descubrir en primicia la guía y entrar en la plataforma antes de su puesta online y, como me ha fascinado, quiero compartir desde TeresaHerreroLiving, un avance de sus posibilidades y cómo navegar por ella.

En primer lugar encontraréis la la posibilidad de buscar por  o temas comisariados por la fundación y sus embajadores. Personas de renombre dentro del mundo de la artesanía, la creatividad y el diseño que  son seleccionados por la fundación según los once criterios de excelencia, identificados por Alberto Cavalli, codirector de la Fundación Miguel Ángel.

Piezas de Asya Kozina

La Guía Homo Faber te descubrirá artesanos únicos de todos los rincones de Europa, desde sopladores de vidrio de Venecia hasta ceramistas de Estocolmo, desde tejedores de tapices de París hasta grabadores de Londres, desde joyeros de San Petersburgo hasta doradores de Viena, e incluso los de los rincones más recónditos del continente. Entre otros traigo aquí a algunos de los que próximamente veréis publicados en TeresaHerreroLiving que me han entusiasmado. Asya Kozina, de San Petersburgo, Rusia, artesana del papel. Dimitri Shabalin, también ruso, de Moscú, que realiza  máscaras enjoyadas y brillantes que crea con objetos antiguos recuperados. El belga Julien Feller, tallador de madera. Desde su estudio en Alfugeria, al sur de Portugal, e inspirándose en el océano Vanesa Barragao, diseñadora textil, recicla hilos y los transforma en jardines marinos con crochet, ganchillo.

La artesanía española en Homo Faber Guide

Por supuesto tras una visita rápida por todos los rincones de la guía. España y su  artesanía ha sido mi primera parada. Madrid, Sevilla y Barcelona son las ciudades que aparecen en primer lugar pero hemos podido comprobar, tras un rato de navegación que la guía no se deja rincón sin descubrir, desde Úbeda a Mallorca pasando por Valencia, Burgos o Galicia.

De la mano de Tomás Alía, arquitecto, diseñador y embajador de la Homo Faber Guide en Madrid, encontramos el taller del luthier Felipe Conde, el de Elena Goded y Ana María Gil en Collado Hermoso, Ábbate,  o el tan instagramedado taller de esparto de Javier Medina.

Pieza de la española Mercedes Vicente

En Andalucía, las anticuarias Ana María Abascal y Patricia Medina guían nuestros pasos a dos talleres sevillanos que me apasionan  el de Exvotos o el Kúu de Yukiko Kitahara en Gelves.  En Barcelona la Fundación Michelangelo nos recomienda al escultor en piedra Jean Briac o el ceramista, Roger Coll.

EOI Fundestarte nos sugiere visitar el taller de sombreros de  Charo Iglesias, o el de la diseñadora textil Natalia Lumbreras y  en Galicia, en Outeiro de Rei, el de Ioia Cuesta que fabrica preciosas cestas. Igualmente nos invita a conocer el universo del cuero gótico punk de Cecilio Castrillo en Villacienzo Burgos o a descubrir las creaciones de Mercedes Vicente escultora textil de Brion (A Coruña) que crea formas espirales inspiradas en conchas marinas.

Pieza de Jean Briac realizada por la artesana Julieta Ansalas

Solo son una mínima muestra de lo que podéis encontrar. Mi recomendación es navegar y navegar y montar tu propio recorrido personalizado a tu estilo, porque la guía es totalmente interactiva. “Tú eres el maestro artesano, dicen, la guía es tu herramienta” Pues manos al ratón. Ah y para facilitar la navegación la guía tiene una app que puedes descargarte para descubrir nuevos artesanos. ¡Disfrutarla!

A partir del 17 de septiembre de 2020

Throughout his entire minimalist love when it comes to interior design, Vincenzo De Cotiis designer another masterpiece right in the heart of sunny Tuscany. This entire interior design project features a few of his modern design creations and Inspiration and Ideas is about to lead you on a journey inside of a luxury home and you will never want to leave!

With his minimalist flair, Vincenzo de Cotiis has added a contemplative contemporary design layer to the lived-in walls of an 18th-century Tuscan villa. With his signature merging of modernity and the monastic not only on the modern interior design ideas but on the art furniture as well, the Italian architect and artist Vincenzo de Cotiis has refreshed the early-18th century villa, transforming it from decaying grandeur to a softly luminous 21st-century vision of raw romance.

“I had been in lockdown for two months. I was isolating between my home and my studio in Milan, and was always with my wife, Claudia Rose. Luckily, creativity can’t be stopped by the lockdown and I was focused more than ever on my new projects and ideas” says Vincenzo De Cotiis.

Part of the appeal of the sweeping four-story escape lies in its solid and reassuring embrace of natural materials. De Cotiis has intuitively balanced their old-as-time allure with handcrafted contemporary pieces that look boldly futuristic but are informed by Italian design traditions. The designer maintains true to his taste but always following the current interior design trends and that is how his big luxury design creations come to life and do the wonders of those that step inside of them.

“I’m constantly thinking about how to improve interiors. I believe that good design helps us live better. It’s a reflection of who we are. Going forward, it will be a challenging time for the field of design and I can imagine that a highly selective market will leave only unique creators who have something valuable to say standing” says Vincenzo De Cotiis.

The creative insight behind “unusual living rooms” comes from two small handwritten booklets, recently discovered in the Fornasetti archive. This collection of unpublished drawings and writings by Piero Fornasetti depicts suns with human faces and other unusual features. One of the unusual living rooms — “Solitario“, “sole” meaning “sun” in Italian — presents these unseen illustrations as part of furnishing decorations that form a complete interior setting.

Soli a Ventaglio living room

Fornasetti has unveiled “unusual living rooms” — five different proposals for interior settings. United by the imaginative fantasy that distinguishes the atelier’s decorations, the five living rooms are titled: leopardo, facciata quattrocentesca, malachite, soli a ventaglio, and solitario. Sofas, armchairs, and benches are complemented with tables, lamps, mirrors, and other accessories, endowing a living room with an ironic yet sophisticated ambiance.

“From a collection of ironic drawings, made by my father with that lightness of his that was never sentimental, there emerged a desire to build spaces that create a special atmosphere for a time and a place that will once again be shared,” explains Barnaba Fornasetti.

The clients expressed a desire to have everything in a calm and rich color palette, and the interior designer fulfilled that whish by combining wooden elements, marble tiles, bronze profiles, glass, leather, fabrics, and gold. Entering the office design there’s a big white conference table from i4 Mariani s.r.l, with a gorgeous chandelier from Sans Souci designed to follow the ceiling’s opening structure. Spotless, bright, and elegant is how we could describe this stylish and fresh office design by Sicilia Shine from Finesse Art & Design Bureau.

This one-room project has a low and contemporary ceiling, which the designer used to their advantage and gave it an even more luxurious touch with two showstopping chandeliers.

The refined work of Sicilia, through an attentive dedication to details, reaches its apogee within this contemporary project, flowing into an inspiring opulent office design in the city of Limassol, Cyprus. There is a geometric tempo throughout the design, with straight lines and smooth rounded paths.

Right beside this area, there’s a sitting lounge space. This space is filled with opulent Boca do Lobo furniture, from the center table and sofa to the sconces and the side table. Taking center stage, the Lapiaz Center Table brings sophistication vibe to the room and combines perfectly with the Imperfectio Sofa and Imperfectio Armchairs around it, which are the expression of imperfect aesthetic, the appeal of that which is authentic art that is truer to life. The gold and discreet Soleil Sconces on the wall were carefully chosen to combine with this sumptuous scenario, and the Monet Side Table also marks his shy yet gorgeous presence. In the round ceiling, an exuberant chandelier from LUXXU illuminates the space and gives a classic touch.

To give an even more luxurious sense to this office design there’s an amazing gold luxury safe that is impossible not to be fascinated by.  Influenced by the California Gold Rush, the Millionaire Safe is also a statement piece by Boca do Lobo designed to cause an impression. Built-in a Mahogany structure and gold-plated polished brass frame with several dents, it sparks both interest and imagination reminding the vault robbery attempts in the old west.

Sicilia Shine collaborated on this project with the furniture retailer Deloudis, based in Greece, which in turn provided photographs for this project, taken by Christos Papantoniou, a commercial photographer based in Cyprus. She also collaborated with a local carpentry firm P.P Custom Décor to execute all carpentry works. The architectural lighting was by Delta Lights and it was also installed in an automation system by Crestron.

When searching for a more secluded location for a getaway home, this family settled on the Lebanon mountains to set up a luxury retreat, the only thing missing? The keen eye of an incredible interior designer such as Thierry Lemaire.

From the infinity pool, swimmers can take in Beirut, about 30 miles to the southwest.

Dominated by gnarled limestone formations, the immediate surroundings are moonlike and magical. The landscaping of the garden was overseen by Vladimir Djurovic, whose most sweeping gesture was the relocation of excavated rocks to create a stalagmite-style screen for the pool by the luxury retreat’s main entrance. The house’s architect, Raëd Abillama, meanwhile, chose to clad the ground-level façade with slabs of stone from the property. It took local artisans two years to assemble them.

“This house was conceived by two people with very different personalities,” Nicolas Garzouzi remarks of the luxury retreat he shares with his wife, Michèle, and their two sons in the Lebanese ski resort of Faqra. “Nicolas is very rigorous and never leaves anything to chance,” notes their interior designer, the Paris based Thierry Lemaire.

Landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic used rocks excavated during construction to create a craggy wall at the entrance. of this luxury retreat.

In contrast to the rectilinearity of the architecture in this luxury retreat, much of the furniture design is sculptural and curvaceous. Examples include the topographical Pyrenees sofa by Fredrikson Stallard in the living room, the meandering Massimiliano Locatelli dining table, and the leather-clad bar fitted with stirrups, which Michèle commissioned from Lebanese designers David/Nicolas.
