“There’s an idea of being connected to the earth, the earth being connected to the stars, and the notion of microcosm and macrocosm. That led me to be inspired by The Giant’s Causeway and its columns of basalt hexagons.”

Due to the world’s recent state, the Metropolitan Museum of Art had to postpone its blockbuster spring 2020 Costume Institute art exhibition“About Time: Fashion and Duration” Met Galawhich was originally planned to take place on 4th May 2020.

Met Gala‘s “About Time: Fashion and Duration” was set to explore fashion’s unique ability to time travel, melding clothing styles from different periods together to create ‘new’ ideas, moving in cycles at the same time as moving forward, and ensuring that some styles are considered timeless and ephemeral. Let’s take a look!

While the Met is still closed, the organization decided to share its curated collection of contemporary and historic garments which traces a century and a half of fashion. Scheduled to open to the public on October 29, 2020, the presented work dates as far back as 1870, in honor of the museum’s 150th anniversary.

Presented entirely with black garments, the Met Gala‘s “About time: fashion and duration” emphasizes the evolving silhouettes and use of secondary detailing. With the collection of pieces ranging from 1870 to the present, curators aim to connect the concept of “duration” with debates about diversity, inclusivity, sustainability, and other ethical issues that will surely express a continuing impact throughout the next decade of luxury fashion. Employing Henri Bergson’s concept of la durée (duration), it will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate past, present, and future. Virginia Woolf will serve as the “ghost narrator” of the exhibition.

A timeline of 120 garments will unfold in two adjacent galleries fabricated as enormous clock faces and organized around the principle of sixty minutes of fashion. Each “minute” will feature a pair of garments—the primary work representing the linear nature of fashion and the secondary work its cyclical character. Each pair will be connected through shape, motif, material, pattern, technique, or decoration. For example, a black silk faille princess-line dress from the late 1870s will be paired with an Alexander McQueen “bumster” skirt from 1995.

All of the primary garments will be black, to emphasize their evolving silhouettes, and the second will be either black or white, to underscore their mutually reinforcing associations. The exhibition will conclude with a small selection of garments from 2020 that links the concept of duration to debates about diversity, inclusivity, sustainability, traceability, transparency, longevity, collaboration, and other ethical issues germane to the next decade of fashion. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog.

Still yet to be seen is the theatrical design of the gallery space, which is scheduled to be unveiled this fall.

“Fashion is indelibly connected to time. It not only reflects and represents the spirit of the times, but it also changes and develops with the times, serving as an especially sensitive and accurate timepiece. Through a series of chronologies, the exhibition will use the concept of duration to analyze the temporal twists and turns of fashion history.” – Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu curator in charge of the Met Gala‘s costume institute

Darle a este espacioso dúplex un aspecto más moderno y atractivo ha sido el principal objetivo de este proyecto de reforma, interiorismo y decoración llevado a cabo por el equipo de DmasC Arquitectos. Y es que esta vivienda, situada en primera línea de playa en Torremolinos (Málaga), se había quedado anticuada y necesitaba un profundo cambio de imagen para que se adecuara mejor a las necesidades de sus propietarios.

“Hemos logrado un excelente resultado gracias a la colaboración con nuestros compañeros de CM4 en las fases de dirección de obra, interiorismo y amueblamiento, y DEObras en la ejecución de obra, que han trabajado brillantemente para cumplir con los objetivos que nos habíamos marcado”, aclaran los responsables de DmasC.

Reforma integral

Aunque la idea inicial era únicamente “dar un lavado de cara” a un apartamento que se había quedado anticuado, en DmasC tuvieron muy claro el proyecto desde el principio. Lograron convencer a los propieatarios para que realizaran una reforma integral de la vivienda y un cambio profundo en la distribución de la misma. “El punto de partida no era sencillo, ya que el propietario puso como principal condición que todas las fases de diseño, obra y amueblamiento se desarrollaran en tan sólo cuatro meses”, cuentan desde el estudio.

Para empezar, los arquitectos intercambiaron la posición de la cocina y el baño en la planta baja, quedando ahora la primera comunicada directamente con el salón y el comedor, aunque independizada gracias a los tabiques de vidrio. Mientras que, en la planta alta, modificaron la distribución de dormitorios, dando un mayor protagonismo al principal, que ha quedado equipado con baño privado y vestidor.

Cambio de imagen

Para alcanzar la imagen atractiva que tenían pensada, sin perder en ningún momento el carácter doméstico, establecieron que el interiorismo por un lado, y la decoración por otro, debían ser complementarios. “Buscamos una base agradable que logramos con el uso de la madera de roble natural, la transparencia de los espacios a través del vidrio y la iluminación indirecta, para después encontrar el contraste seleccionando un mobiliario con colores vivos que aportara más personalidad, cuentan desde el estudio.

Detalles en madera

En la planta baja, donde conviven en sucesión salón, comedor, cocina es donde se desarrolla gran parte de la vida familiar. Entre estos espacios, encontramos una gran presencia de madera natural, que se ha utilizado como detalle arquitectónico en paneles verticales consiguiendo una separación visual entre ellos.

El antiguo pavimento se cambió por el mármol en tonos crema. Este material, muy práctico para una casa en la costa por su fácil limpieza, recorre las distintas estancias del dúplex ejerciendo como hilo conductor y aportando frescura y claridad a todos los ambientes.

Salón amplio y luminoso

Para decorar el salón, donde la luz natural entra a raudales a través de los amplios ventanales que llevan a la terraza, se eligieron un sofá y sillones tapizados en azul klein y cojines en tonos mostaza con estampado geométricos que proporcionan ese toque de modernidad que necesitaba la casa. También de plena actualidad con toques art decó son las estructuras doradas de las mesitas y de las lámparas de latón con globos opacos. La pared del estar se paneló en blanco con hornacinas de madera de roble natural en diferentes formatos.

Comedor abierto

Justo detrás de la zona de estar se ubicó el comedor que se encuentra conectado a la cocina gracias al uso del cristal y de una celosía de madera. Una amplia mesa, que cuenta con un original sobre de madera en espiga, las lámparas de latón con bombillas vistas y un espectacular papel pintado formando rombos completan la decoración de esta zona. El techo foseado esconde una efectiva iluminación indirecta, en un juego de luces y sombras muy cálido.

La cocina

La cocina, aunque alargada, es lo suficientemente amplia como para colocar una barra de desayunos con taburetes altos. Los muebles lacados en blanco brillo -con frentes lisos y sin tiradores- y las zonas de trabajo, con azulejos retro, se eligieron en color blanco, lo que contrasta con la pared lateral de cristal y madera y el suelo jaspeado en color crema.

Jardín interior

En el hueco de la escalera que lleva a los dormitorios, con pasamanos de latón dorado, se habilitó un sencillo pero atractivo jardín interior cubierto de piedras y salpicado por pequeñas palmeras, que contribuyen a crear un rincón de naturaleza y equilibrio.

Dormitorio principal

Presidido por una amplia cama de matrimonio, en el dormitorio principal –con baño y vestidor– se optó por el binomio beis y madera. En el cabecero de mármol, a modo de balda que permite utilizarlo como estantería, se colocaron dos mesitas de noche flotantes. Como en otras zonas de a casa, el foseado perimetral del techo proporciona una luz indirecta y acogedora.

El uso de una celosía de madera permite el paso de la luz hacia la zona de lavabos del baño, además de servir de soporte al televisor. Detrás, una robusta encimera de madera acoge dos lavamanos exentos y el frente se cubrió con un gran espejo que amplía visualmente el espacio y aporta mayor luminosidad.

En blanco con toques de color

En los dos dormitorios que completan el piso superior, priman la sencillez y la comodidad. Se eligió  el color blanco en las paredes y en los frentes de los armarios, y se reservó el toque de color para los cabeceros, textiles y alfombras. En este caso, la iluminación indirecta, que vemos en toda la casa, se completa con pequeños focos empotrados en el techo y delante de los armarios para ver mejor los interiores.
