Casa Decor 2021 con los salones y salas de estar de la Casa Tomás Allende

Salones y salas de estar en Casa Decor 2021

Empezamos nuestro repaso por los espacios que forman la edición Casa Decor 2021 con los salones y salas de estar de la Casa Tomás Allende. Además del lobby Mixture Time, de Jaime Jurado y del salón Adunia, diseñado por Miguel Muñoz para Artesanía de Castilla-La Mancha –proyectos que presentamos hace unos días–, en la Exposición encontramos otros 10 espacios que nos descubren novedades, tendencias, soluciones decorativas y nuevas formas de vivir.

Espacio VG Living

#MissYourKiss se llama el salón que Virginia Gasch, de VG Living, ha diseñado en el recibidor del ala derecha de la segunda planta: un espacio dedicado al beso en un tiempo en el que la pandemia nos ha cortado las alas y nuestras emociones se han quedado en suspenso. La interiorista ha creado un salón moderno, colorista y vitalista, donde el arco –una de las tendencias decorativas de esta edición– es el hilo conductor del espacio, que envuelve al visitante a través de sus formas redondeadas presentes en el suelo de mosaico ecológico, en las paredes y el mobiliario.

El suelo se cubrió con un mosaico Art Factory de Hisbalit, un diseño de Virginia creado con 4 referencias en formato cuadrado en tono rosa, marrón, beige y blanco, una gama cromática inspirada en los besos.

Espacio Bang & Olufsen por Marisa Gallo

En esta edición, Bang & Olufsen confió en Marisa Gallo, de Interiorisimo, para crear el salón Beoliving, una sala de relax donde disfrutar de los productos audiovisuales de la firma danesa, entre los que destaca el televisor Beovision Harmony. Bajo éste, una repisa de piedra natural de Granith recorre todo el frente.

En el pasillo que encontramos nada más entrar al espacio, se creó una barra de desayunos y comidas rápidas donde, además de colocar varias botellas de The London Nº1 GIN, se instalaron cafeteras de La Marzocco. A continuación, el espacio principal se dividió en dos ambientes mediante una celosía diseñada por la interiorista. Para cubrir el suelo, creó un patrón de líneas geométricas en blanco y negro, y decoró las paredes con revestimientos murales, de Arte International. Además, paneles 3D, zócalos y cornisas de Orac Decor enriquecen el espacio.

Entre las piezas del mobiliario, destaca la imponente butaca en piel camel Imola de Bo Concept, un diseño de Henrik Pedersen, inspirado en las líneas de una pelota de tenis, y objetos sostenibles como la mesa auxiliar fabricada con materiales 100 % reciclados. El uso reiterado de tejidos es una seña de identidad de la interiorista, que utilizó textiles y tapicería de Sunbrella .

La domótica Lutron y reproductores de Bang & Olufsen permiten el control de todas las instalaciones del espacio, como la iluminación, el audio-video y las cortinas.

Completan el espacio distintas obras de arte: una escultura de Alberto Guerrero; la obra pictórica «Mudas promesas», de Débora Sánchez Viqueira y una fotografía de 27 MM-Enric Gener para Mar de Frades. La dirección y ejecución de obra corrió a cargo de Arquitalia Obras y Proyectos.

Espacio Verónica Montijano

Caelum. En el tercer cielo es el salón inspirado en el cielo de la Divina Comedia de Dante, proyectado por Verónica Montijano en el recibidor del ala derecha de la tercera planta. Un espacio monocolor, con escogidas piezas de mobiliario y una chimenea decorativa diseñada por Verónica para esta edición de Casa Decor. Las paredes originales se revistieron con una elaborada carpintería lacada efecto charol y frentes de cristal tintado en el mismo tono, mientras que el suelo se cubrió con una moqueta de lana virgen. Las cortinas verticales de madera lacada son de Luximperium.

Espacio GM Group por Cristina Amigo

El gigante indio GM Electric Group abre la puerta al mercado europeo a través de su espacio en Casa Decor: el recibidor del ala izquierda de la 5ª planta que Cristina Amigo ha convertido en una acogedora y moderna sala multifuncional. El espacio, gracias a las soluciones de GM, puede transformarse en salón, dormitorio o lugar de trabajo. Además, en Atelier Living, las piezas del mobiliario –diseñadas por la interiorista– también tienen distintos usos. Así, el sofá Circle, realizado y tapizado por Ormo’s, se transforma en cama, y el biombo Curve que hace las veces de cabecero o tabique móvil. En el espacio hay también una silla giratoria de Mobliberica y una lámpara de techo, de Oliva Iluminación. El suelo veteado es de Neolith.

Espacio Sofía Oliva Arquitectura

Madera, tejidos naturales, piedra y escayola son algunos de los componentes principales de Lienzo en Blanco, el salón proyectado por Sofía Oliva, en el ala derecha de la tercera planta. La arquitecta ha logrado recrear una atmósfera serena y calmada a través de un minimalismo confortable. En el espacio han colaborado Jung, con los mecanismos, y Lizzo/Pepe Peñalver, con los textiles.

Espacio Singular Living

La mansión del gran Gatsby que Francis Scott Fitzgerald describe en su novela inspiró a Elena Jori, de Singular Living, el diseño del espacio Long Island: summer of 1922una sala de estar en la que ha logrado recrear un ambiente acogedor, singular y con personalidad, gracias a la mezcla del interiorismo de las casas regias de Madrid de principios del siglo XX con el maximalismo contemporáneo. Materiales como el latón pulido, mármol, formas geométricas, elementos vegetales art decó y marquetería en techos y paredes consiguen trasladarnos a los felices años 20. Entre las piezas de mobiliario destacan los aparadores de la colección Adara de Momocca, con un singular acabado en curva.

Espacio Ethan Chloe por Guille García-Hoz

De la mano de la empresa Ethan Chloe, Guille García-Hoz nos propone una jaima muy particular, ubicada en el hall del ala izquierda de la 4ª planta. Con muebles, lámparas y complementos de esta firma de mobiliario y decoración, el diseñador apostó por un mix de estilos que encaja con la personalidad aventurera del personaje Ethan Chloe, un trotamundos con mucha clase. En el espacio también ha colaborado Levantina con el porcelánico de gran formato Sahara Blanche, de Techlam, que Guille escogió para revestir el frente de la chimenea, la celosía decorativa y parte del suelo.

Espacio Nometri

En el ala izquierda de la tercera planta, se encuentra Be My Guest, el salón proyectado por Ana Mª Fernández, de Nometri. La diseñadora de interiores se ha inspirado en la filosofía Hygge para crear un espacio relajado y confortable que invita a disfrutarde un buen libro, tomar una taza de té, escuchar música o simplemente charlar. Para ello, no ha dudado en combinar diseños clásicos, como la hornacina con vajillas de porcelana de Vista Alegre, con mobiliario contemporáneo, de Mobliberica, como la mesa auxiliar Sol, el aparador Miles, de Dressy, el sillón Salinas de Musola y prints de insectos. La alfombra que viste el espacio, así como el papel pintado que decora uno de los frentes, cortinas y cojines, son de CRClass by Roberto Diz. Las lámparas de techo pertenecen a la colección Nightbloom, diseñada por Marcel Wanders para Lladró. En el espacio también ha colaborado FEDE, con los mecanismos.

Espacio La Redoute por Mónica Garrido

Por segundo año consecutivo, La Redoute ha confiado en Mónica Garrido para el diseño de su espacio, ubicado en la 5ª planta. Family Room es una estancia multifuncional, con una mesa central como elemento principal que hace las veces de mesa de centro y de comedor. Alrededor de ella se colocó el resto de elementos: un sofá donde relajarse, una zona de librería y un rincón de lectura o relax junto a la ventana. Un espacio cálido y acogedor creado con piezas de calidad de la reconocida firma francesa de tiendas online..

Espacio Lorna de Santos

También en la 5ª planta, en este caso en el ala derecha, encontramos el salónIkigai,de Lorna de Santos, que se inspira en la vuelta  a la vida tras la pandemia, y nos insta a entrar en contacto con nuestro origen y la naturaleza. La arquitecta ha diseñado el espacio con materiales naturales como los revestimientos de mortero de arcilla, de Ecoclay, en las paredes, en tanto el suelo de madera se ha tratado con un barniz de Bona. El lino en el techo y el tronco de madera que recorre la estancia del fondo son recuperados de su sala de estar Topografías del Placer, espacio ganador del Premio al Mejor Proyecto Casa Decor 2020, en un gesto de responsabilidad ecológica.

Eco-Floating Hotel, A Luxurious Revolving Hotel in Qatar by Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio

A Turkish architectural studio has come up with an amazing design for a Floating hotel that would float and spin in the ocean to generate power. The design has been created by the famous Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio (HAADS), which plans to build a futuristic hotel off the coast of Qatar. HAADS has shared the design and GIF visualisation of the proposed hotel on its website, where the main structure can be seen revolving with a vortex on top. 

image © Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio

This project, which started working on it in March 2020 and lasted 6 months, adopts the motto of minimum energy loss and zero waste as a principle according to the design approach it has put forward. Due to its characteristic moving feature it generates electrical energy by rotating around its position according to the water Current and provides users with different perspective experiences. Created as a 5 – Star Hotel, The Eco-Floating Hotel has a construction area of 35000 m² and a total of 152 rooms.

image © Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio

The eco-floating hotel is inspired by the sea with which it is associated in the first degree in terms of form and design principle. At this point, it is worth mentioning that the project will work efficiently in areas where there is a continuous and certain Current. However, the sea which gives the structure physical and tangible power and receives the return it needs in a mutualistic form also directs the shape of the structure with the idea of the vortex. If it is accepted that the water formed and disappeared by itself forming a rotation around itself in a regular Current and the shape is considered to have risen with its borders and evolved into a platform, it will give a transparent mass silhouette. It was this image that fed and supported the project.

In a project aimed at maximum benefit to ecological balance, the element used in terms of green energy production is called vawtau (vertical axis wind turbine and umbrella) which works as a wind turbine on the vertical axis and it has a function as a sun umbrella on the coastal band. 25 kW of electrical energy can be obtained from each of the 55 vawtau modules. Vawtau uses wind Current caused by temperature difference in sea and land as its working principle.

Another point considered in terms of energy production is the effective use of green areas and rainwater. In this sense, it is aimed to work in a way that is appropriate to the design identity and effectively when processing the project landscape. The hotel’s top cover inspired by the vortex also performs the function of collecting rainwater in its form. The water that will be obtained from here can be used as gray water by treatment and its main purpose is to maintain the water balance of green areas.

The project which aims to minimize intervention in the ecological balance by determined means aims not to use fossil fuels at any stage by methods such as rainwater accumulation, vawtau modules, rotational movement it performs around itself.

image © Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio

Just as the water necessity required by the hotel can be met with gray water the water needed will be obtained by purification from the sea. It will also treat the waste water it will produce and thus will not harm the environment. In terms of other wastes occurring it is aimed to develop waste separation units in order to maintain efficiency and to use them as fertilizer in the landscape for the recycling of substances such as food waste.

Access to the floating hotel takes 3 different forms. The first of these access routes will be through a 140-degree floating pier, the other will be through boats that will provide access from the sea to the hotel, and finally by helicopter and drone to the helipad located on the floating pier using the airway.

Downtown Manhattan, Stad Architecture created a lush green landscape interior design project inside this minimal apartment. The owners wanted to bring a bit of nature into the city that never sleeps.

ARTICLE ORIGINALLY POSTED ON OCTOBER 10, 2018

The Chelsea Pied-à-Terre Apartment is for a couple who permanently reside in Vancouver, British Columbia. Prior to the renovation, the old layout had a narrow kitchen isolated from the living area. The client’s ask for a nice working kitchen, so the designers enlarged, opened, and redesign the kitchen’s layout to take advantage of the living room’s daylight.

The clients also challenged the designer’s team “to incorporate a landscape feature (recalling the lush natural landscape from southwestern Canada) to help relieve downtown Manhattan’s concrete landscape.” After much deliberation, they considered ‘landscape’ as a custom hand-painted wall covering.

Interior Design Project Brings Nature Inside This New York Apartment green design ideas inspirations11 Using the client’s desire as inspiration, “the custom wall covering is analogous to the canopy bed’s use of upholstery as a space-defining ceiling canopy and headboard wall.”

For the design, they collaborated with Calico Wallpaper, the gold-leafed ceiling creates a luminous sky above the bed while the green field anchors the headboard wall. When privacy is not a concern, this room-sized architectural canopy bed becomes a visual focal point from the open living room.
As needed, two large glass doors close obscuring visual details while still allowing natural light to filter through the apartment’s different spaces.

Pale oak herringbone flooring was used from the bedroom into the lounge, which features bright white-painted walls. To bring hues of green from the large painting they picked in the same shade modern furniture, including a dark green sofa, a green-colored glass table, and a wood and leather chair.

Through Kingston Lafferty Design studios’ work, they create spaces with feeling, meaning, and character. Spaces where beauty can be appreciated but the realities of everyday life are facilitated. They build brands and modern design graphics to enhance spaces and further impact the overall experience, and that is exactly what occurred in their newest restaurant design in Dublin: The Cinnamon Restaurant. Inspiration and Ideas had got you covered and is about to give you all the inside scoop of this incredible luxury restaurant that is incredibly Instagram worthy.

The restaurant design is almost theatrical – simple shapes become building blocks and buttons to play with, while differing textures encourage touch that draws users to engage with space. This luxury restaurant invites its visitors to become characters in a story. Upon stepping into the pink and maroon dipped room, they experience their environment in fun and unexpected ways, cementing KLD’s success in encouraging us to think differently about this restaurant design.

KLD’s interior design philosophy is grounded in an appreciation for how people live and work. These observations became the foundation for this restaurant design, ensuring those who engage with space may find both meaning and beauty in their encounters. Movement throughout the interior is guided by deep maroon floors which are periodically sliced open by dusty blue circular tiles. This pastiche of color becomes the runway that leads guests into each different microenvironment existing alongside one another.

Four-meter ceilings tower over users as bright sunlight crawls over all surfaces of the entrance. Soft leather couches bend around cozy seating arrangements – the perfect place to wake up slowly with direct sun on a Sunday morning. Suddenly, and as if entering a different contemporary restaurant, 10 steps down the corridor warm sunlight gives way to the moody glow of a hanging pendant. Definitely a restaurant design for pink lovers!

An intimate velvet-covered seat wraps itself around a space carved out of the side of a wall, a setting with ample amounts of personality and drama. Each pocket of space, created by the injection of a new mezzanine, takes on a different and playful personality which facilitates the unique desires of individual customers – human experience clearly the main focus of the restaurant design scheme.

Bespoke light fixtures become oversized lollipops glowing throughout the room. A wall of circular mirrors capture the light before reflecting it onto adjacent high-gloss surfaces – customers sitting beside them encouraged to watch as they shimmer before them. There is experimentation with scale too. The main entrance deliberately maintains a double-height wall while the additional bar was designed as an oversized element that makes visitors feel miniature with “a dollhouse effect”.

Inspiration and Ideas brings you a select guide to the Best Architects Of All Time and their iconic creations. Architecture has always distinguished itself from other art forms because it plays a functional as well as an aesthetic role, offering shelter, of course, but also shaping our daily experiences.

Antoni Gaudí

Gaudí spent his entire career in Barcelona, where he built all of his projects, the most iconic creation being the 1883 cathedral known as La Sagrada Familia, still under construction today. Gaudí’s work would go on to have a tremendous impact on subsequent generations of modernists.

Frank Lloyd Wright

The Best Architects Of All Time And Their Iconic Creations SolomonRGuggenheimMuseum

Wright revolutionized 20th-century architect, and his midwestern upbringing played a crucial role in shaping his sensibility and becoming a staple as one of the best architects of modern times. Inspired by the low-lying building that dotted the American plains, Wright created the Prairie House style as a reaction to the prevailing Victorian aesthetic, which emphasized dark decor, and busy embellishments both inside and out. In its stead, Wright employed clean geometries with an emphasis on horizontal planes. Later in his career, Wright would embrace curvilinear elements, a shift that found its most celebrated expression in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

Mies Van der Rohe

354 seagram

Famously holding to the proposition that “less is more,” German architect Mies Van der Rohe stripped architecture to elemental geometric forms, pointing the way to Minimalism. He banished all traces of ornamentation, using the innate qualities of materials such as steel and plate glass to define the look of his buildings. One of his most iconic creations is the Seagram’s tower in New York.

Richard Rogers

Pompidou Center

When the Pompidou Center first opened in 1977, it was considered the epitome of a trend at the time known variously as High Tech and Structural Expressionism. British architect Richard Rogers was a leading proponent of the style. This building, designed as Paris’s central institution for Modern and contemporary art, suggests a structure turning inside out, with its heating and plumbing systems worn as the facade—which also features a glass-enclosed outdoor escalator climbing the height of the building.

Frank Gehry

The Best Architects Of All Time And Their Iconic Creations el edificio guggenheim bilbao 1

This West Coast architect is undoubtedly one of the best architects in the world right now, thanks to his 1997 design for the Guggenheim Museum branch in Bilbao, Spain. Though Gehry was already well-established in his field as the auteur billowing forms that seem to defy gravity and the logic of conventional construction methods, The Guggenheim Bilbao remains the finest example of his iconic work.

Norman Foster

The Gherkin

A fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Le Corbusier, British architect Norman Foster worked early in career as an associate of Buckminster Fuller, the noted visionary and inventor of the geodesic dome. The latter’s tessellated pattern of triangular forms must have made an impression on the young Foster since his most iconic creations feature similar surface treatments for their facades, The Gherkin, a commercial skyscraper in London’s financial district that opened in 2004.

Santiago Calatrava

The Best Architects Of All Time And Their Iconic Creations Heintges WTCTransHub 13

The work of this Spanish architect has been described as Neofuturist, although sci-fi baroque might be closer to describing it. His buildings often resemble the ribcages of extinct robotic dinosaurs, if such things existed. His projects definitely attracted worldwide attention—and garnered a reputation for massive cost overruns. Nonetheless, there’s no denying that Calatrava is one of the best architects working today, as his most iconic creation—the Transit Hub for the World Trade Center—attests.

Zaha Hadid

The Best Architects Of All Time And Their Iconic Creations 190311 18 31 50 5DSR7031

One of the few women to have risen to the level of starchitect—and the first ever to win architecture’s version of the Oscar, the Pritzker PrizeZaha Hadid was known for futuristic designs that employed curving, swooping lines more suitable for UFOs than buildings. Though she built extensively around the world, she has only one completed project—a luxury condo in Chelsea—in New York City.

Oscar Niemeyer

The Best Architects Of All Time And Their Iconic Creations 1200px Congresso do Brasil

The Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer was one of the key figures in the development of the midcentury modernist design. Anticipating the work of Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid, Niemeyer employed bold curvilinear forms at a time when the boxy International Style reigned and Mies Van der Rohe’s proposition that “less is more” was the mantra of the architectural field. Niemeyer was part of the design team behind the U.N. Building in New York City, but his most famous creation was undoubtedly the civic buildings for Brasília, the planned city that has served as Brazil’s capital since 1960.

Rem Koolhaas

The Best Architects Of All Time And Their Iconic Creations CCTV 02 800x533

Born in Rotterdam in 1945, Rem Koolhaas is one of the best architects of his generation, not only as a building designer but also as an architectural theorist. He is best known for the massive Central China Television Headquarters in Beijing, China, a 44-story möbius-strip of a structure that appears to loop in on itself (the locals refer to it as “big boxer shorts”).
