Sun and sand-kissed interior architecture. Inspired by colors of the Mediterranean, the Scorpios restaurant and beach club in Mykonos reflects the weathered landscape of the famous Cycladic island. Neutral tones, rich textures and whitewashed walls under thatched ceilings are paired with handcrafted details in wood and wicker. The combination of local materials and minimalistic design gives the place a relaxing, but a the same time glamorous atmosphere. ...

Carl Auböck, one of the quirkiest and well known figures of Austrian modernism, creates art out of everyday objects. In his Viennese workshop he manufactures primarily smaller accessory furnishings and table top pieces, such as bookends, paperweights and letter openers. Combining metal — most often brass — and such elemental materials as leather, knobby wood and animal horn, Auböck's designs add a modernist's twist to any display...

Shades of nude and warm neutrals...

I little inspiration from Adolf Loos this morning: The Semler’s family house in Pilsen, which he created in the period 1931 – 1932. The principle of symmetry is strictly kept within the rooms, with walls luxuriously covered by marble plates and wooden wall panelling ...

During our recent trip to Mexico we stayed at an amazing little airbnb house in the middle of nowhere. As the owner Claudio describes it, Casa Tiny was inspired by Henry Thoreau's "Walden", and is a place to enjoy a simple life in a minimal, low-impact, isolated abode. Opening to all sides, the size and functions of the house are reduced to a minimum and the materials are simple as its environment – smooth concrete and wooden details. The big table area is the centre of the house, extending to the outside, where the hammock offers a perfect hangout. The private secluded beach nearby and the lovely pool just in front of the house are all you need to enjoy your days. The house is surounded by nature and you wake up with the first sunrays over the tress, and fall asleep gazing at the stars – a safari-like experience. The simplicity and serenity of the place sets you at pace with mother earth and fulfils all expectations of a modern escape. Casa Tiny got us inspired to build something similar in the Swiss Alps...
