La vivienda, obra del arquitecto milanés, establecido en Barcelona, Michele Mantovani (MMS) es el ejemplo perfecto de la síntesis del interior y el exterior en la arquitectura. La sublimación de la relación interior-exterior en una villa en Shanghai

Creada para una familia con un negocio floreciente en Shanghai. La idea del proyecto de Michele Mantovani era fundir en el mismo espacio, negocios y vida familiar, tradiciones y un sentido contemporáneo de la vida en oriente.

La expansión que ha vivido los últimos años el estudio Michele Mantovani(MMS) en el continente asiático se h a consolidado y es frecuente tanto sus proyectos en el sector privado, en arquitectura e interiorismo, como en el diseño de muebles de alta gama para el mercado chino. Mantovani conoce muy bien el mundo oriental Shanghai Villa es uno de los proyectos de arquitectura e interiorismo  más importantes que ha realizado recientemente. Una villa de más de 500m2 para una familia de negocios que tiene que dar cabida no sólo a la vida privada de cada uno de sus miembros sino también articular en la primera planta como en las casas chinas clásicas con salas y salones de reunión, salas de estudio, salón de té, despacho, sala para los chóferes… enfocada a los negocios familiares.  El interiorismo brilla y orbita alrededor de un estilo classic-contemporary chinese, con selección de marcas italianas como Giorgetti, Varaschin, Flos, Poltrona Frau, Flexform, Rubelli para empapelados y tejidos, alfombras de Golran….  gamas de colores y las disposiciones de las habitaciones se encauzan por los parámetros del Feng Shui; azul añil, colores piedra y beige, mármoles italianos y chinos, maderas nobles.

Todos los espacios se han pensado con este equilibrio, eligiendo uno a uno cada elemento que la conforman para que todo esté donde debe estar; desde la bodega a la colección de antigüedades, pasando por vestíbulo,  al salón familiar, la singular sala del piano, el gran jardín de estilo chino, el corazón de la vivienda, y las habitaciones.  La sala del piano es una estancia muy especial. 

Cuando los propietarios encargaron la reforma de la casa, le pidieron al arquitecto una habitación en contacto con la naturaleza. Por eso, puede distinguirse en el plano, el diseño se pensó de esa forma. Con techos en madera, pilares y paredes acristaladas. Desde esta habitación hay vistas a la joya de la corona, el jardín, con sus árboles, estanques y recorridos muy estudiados.

No había clases de arte en el jardín en Bauhaus. Los arquitectos y artistas se mantuvieron a sí mismos y propagaron el diseño holístico y la conexión deliberada del interior y el exterior en la arquitectura. Y exactamente es lo que ha hecho Mantovani con el jardín de esta casa de Shanghai. Informarse y buscar la ayuda de un maestro de Feng Shui para su diseño.

Así el jardín es el centro y el corazón de la vivienda que late al compás de sus formas libres, sus trazados, que forman parte de un flujo continuo de caminos, serpenteos y curvas. Está trazado sobre unos ejes que se corresponden el eje principal de la casa.

Pensamos crear diferentes itinerarios que no fueran rectos para crear diferentes vistas y perspectivas. Al lado de los recorridos añadimos el elemento del agua, un  pequeño riachuelo que sigue todo el recorrido”  

Michele Mantovani. Arquitecto

Todos los elementos del jardín son lo mas orgánicos posible para crear el atmósfera de un ambiente natural y no arquitectónico y aunque no se aprecia del todo desde las fotos, según cuenta el arquitecto: cada habitación de la casa tiene su vista a un elemento del jardín: un árbol bonsai, el estanque con peces, los senderos curvilíneos…”

La habitación del té, ritual típico en oriente, también se incorporó a ese precioso pequeño paraíso que es el jardín. “La diseñamos levantada, creando un montículo para que así pudiera tener una vista privilegiada”. 

Todas las habitaciones viven el jardín y giran sobre sus continuos movimientos, alrededor del agua, encerrada en piscinas y estanques circulares y en movimiento a través del pequeño riachuelo. A través de las plantas de cada estación, o de las flores rojas  que se entonan con los clásicos faroles de papel. La elegancia y armonía que desprende el jardín, refleja al 100% la cultura y tradiciones chinas. Una síntesis de  arquitectura  en un entorno lleno de poesía, compuesto por Michele Mantovani  como si se tratase de una sinfonía, una poesía o una pintura. Esta es la clave del diseño del jardín, al que se asoma esta casa en Shanghai. Toda una declaración de intenciones tan espléndida como delicada y sofisticada y, sin duda, el mejor envoltorio para un hogar, sin duda, muy especial.

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”.

In order to break away from the chichés of what a luxury design entails, Patricia Bustos Studio created a bathroom design where neon dreams reign supreme. Metanoia is a “retreat”, a stairway to a utopian world where inner peace and connection with our environs are the true paths of conversion.

Patricia Bustos Studio Creates A Neon-Inspired Bathroom Design (2)   Patricia Bustos Studio Creates A Neon Inspired Bathroom Design 2

Madrid-based Patricia Bustos Studio has unveiled Metanoia, a utopian bathroom design described by Patricia Bustos as a “temple for the body and soul”. The installation challenges the paradigms surrounding luxury design, smashing through clichés, and stereotypes to create a deeply conceptual space.

It is all pretty wild, however, the visual drama is counterbalanced by its ability to evoke deep relaxation. Metanoia becomes a physical manifestation of what we imagine it would feel like to be a part of a drifting cloud. A super high tech, futuristic cloud, that is. There is a dreamlike, almost surreal quality to this bathroom design. Guests, while confronted with all the colour and shape of a kaleidoscope, are also strangely lulled into a sense of deep calm. The chaotic zigzagging face of the entry walls represents the overstimulation experienced in the contemporary world. Metanoia, therefore, unfolds in a cave-like “retreat” which is completely constructed around the sensory experience. Patricia Bustos’ aim is that guests can fully immerse themselves in quiet contemplation away from the distractions of the outside world.

White fur-clad curving walls wrap around the interior like a warm hug. Glass prisms adorn the walls and guard the steps up to the shower, radiating the intense colour and glow of a burning orange sunset. The bathroom design is dotted with contradictions and complexities, which grouped together, generate an unexpected and joyful experience. There is a sense of balance, as moments of overwhelming colour are met with neutrality, and instances of boldness are paired back with simplicity.

US studio S3 Architecture worked with luxury carmaker Aston Martin‘s architectural design service to create Sylvan Rock, an angular black-cedar home in Hudson Valley, New York. With building works set to start in early 2021, Sylvan Rock by S3 Architecture will be the first property to be fully realised under Aston Martin’s Automotive Galleries and Lairs service, which launched last year.

The service sees the luxury car brand team up with architectural studios across the world to design bespoke spaces where its clients can show off their most cherished motors.

Aston Martin Designs First Residential Project, Sylvan Rock   Aston Martin Designs First Residential Project Sylvan Rock 6

Sylvan Rock will be situated two hours away from Manhattan, hidden amongst a 55-acre plot of forested land in Hudson Valley that will allow inhabitants to “reconnect with nature”.

Aston Martin Designs First Residential Project, Sylvan Rock   Aston Martin Designs First Residential Project Sylvan Rock 15

A sweeping driveway that spans 2,000 feet (609 metres) will lead up to the front door of the house. The facade will be composed of expansive panels of glazing and blackened cedar. Its dark metal roof will be faceted to emulate the jagged shape of surrounding rock formations, at one point dramatically dipping downwards to form a covered entryway.

When designing, we always let the land speak first and respond to it (…) It’s as if the home is born of and launching from the landscape. The resulting design blends our modernist aesthetic with the privacy and context of the rural location to create a unique luxury experience.

said Christopher Dierig, partner at S3 Architecture.

Cars will be displayed in a subterranean gallery-style room that’s completely enclosed by panels of glass.

It will look through to a wine lounge where bottles are kept in floor-to-ceiling latticed shelves that subtly nod to the intersecting lines seen in Aston Martin‘s logo. At this level, there will also be an office where the inhabitants can escape to do work without interruption. It will feature a huge window that offers an up-close glimpse of the craggy rocks outdoors.

From here guests can head upstairs to the ground floor where there will be a kitchen, cosy den, dining room, formal sitting area and an array of other shared living spaces that look out across the home’s decked pool area and verdant landscape.

Aston Martin – which will be responsible for the home’s interiors – imagines each room to be finished with parquet flooring and rich chocolate-brown storage cabinetry. Marble-topped tables and plush, leather-trimmed soft furnishings will further enhance the opulent feel of the home.

The grounds of Sylvan Rock will additionally accommodate three gabled guest pods that will stagger down a grassy embankment towards a pond. They will enable visiting friends and family to have a sense of privacy when they come to stay but, when not in use, can alternatively serve as a health and fitness space or a quiet area for homeschooling.

There will also be a small produce garden where fruit and vegetables can be grown, as well as a pitched-roof treehouse where inhabitants or guests can choose to spend a night under the stars, closer to the site’s wildlife.

With continued references to fine art, feminism, and her Italian heritage, Maria Grazia Chiuri presents a fully immersive and awe-inspiring show for Dior‘s 2021 collection.

For Dior’s first in-person show since the COVID-19 pandemic rocked the luxury fashion world, Maria Grazia Chiuri made sure to leave her socially-distanced guests with an event to remember. While the creative director often champions female artists (her recent couture collection referenced Dora Maar and Leonora Carrington in its goddess-like garments), Chiuri’s latest presentation uses collage art as its awe-inspiring backdrop of this fashion show.

Dior’s spring-summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection may have been staged at the Jardin des Tuileries as part of Paris Fashion Week, but the creative inspiration was pure Italian. Having recently shown her cruise 2021 collection in Lecce, Puglia, where her father grew up, Chiuri has connected with her heritage again by tapping several Italian talents for this new collection.

First is Lucia Marcucci, a contemporary artist best known for her female-centric collages, which began drawing attention in the 1960s. Approaching her practice like avant-garde poetry, Marcucci not only combines newspaper cutouts and other two-dimensional media, but she also weaves various film clips together in poignant video works in this Dior runway.

The clashing patterns and colors produce a kaleidoscopic effect, much like Marcucci’s stained-glass collages and the choir’s fragmented verses. Somehow, it all works, perfectly encapsulating Chiuri’s ongoing desire to charm and expand her audience’s knowledge through some of the most innovative presentations, compelling narratives, and nuanced influences that the fashion industry has ever seen. What did you think of Dior‘s show and fashion design pieces?

Todo un must entre las lámparas, la pequeña Oda, creada por  del reconocido diseñador alemán Sebastian Herkner, llega para alegrar este raro otoño con un nuevo tamaño y color de cristal. La produce la firma alemana Pulpo, experta en mezclar experimentos y emociones, artesanía y contemporaneidad. Así nace Oda, en un práctico tamaño intermedio para cubrir cubre la brecha entre la grande y la mediana. El nuevo color “gris acero” irradia un poco de color azul en el vidrio soplado artesano del fabricante alemán Poschinger.

Inspirada en las imágenes de los fotógrafos de la famosa Escuela Becher de Düsseldorf dirigida por Bernd e Hilla Becher, la Oda ha cautivado desde 2014 a un gran amplio público por sus combinaciones de marcos de acero y cuerpos de vidrio orgánico que se transforman como estados de ánimo y juegan con la luz que brilla a través de ella.

Cada pieza se crea a partir de vidrio soplado a mano de color. Las burbujas, rayas y otras variaciones de tamaño y color son parte del proceso de producción, y no defectos del diseño o la producción. El marco está construido en acero, recubierto de polvo o cromado, o en latón. La serie esta disponible en cuatro tamaños y una amplia gama de combinaciones de colores.

Un resplandeciente homenaje a la luz como fuente de calidez que se ha convertido en su corta vida en toda una referencia del diseño de la iluminación contemporánea.

“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)

“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

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
