AN ONLINE INTERIOR DESIGN JOURNAL AND DESTINATION FOR DESIGN IN ALL ITS FORMS.

 

Let me introduce you to the ideas, things and places that I am passionate about and inspire me and my work as INTERIOR ARCHITECTINTERIOR STYLIST and BLOGGER based in ZURICH.

Flos just launched a small version of the iconic Taccia lamp designed by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1962. A classic of postmodern design, Taccia unites industrial aesthetics with a classic design language, modelling the base after the shaft of a classical column and the top after an upside-down pendant lamp. The concave reflector can be adjusted, creating a beautiful atmospheric light on the interiors around it. ...

Some inspirations from an interior design concept I did for a restaurant in Leipzig. The restaurant is situated in an old factory building and the design will be simple, industrial, but with a warm atmosphere… ...

During my trip to Paris last week a stumbled across the new restaurant at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. The Lou-Lou, designed by Joseph Dirand, elegantly combines decorative elements from the past with modernistic furnishings. Très chic! ...

Bohemian style interior - exterior lounging. With summer in full glory here in Zurich, interior and exterior spaces are merging togehter again. Let´s pull out our widley patterned rugs and cosy pillows and create a bohemian style lounge. I love the idea of scattering colorful rugs across the lawn, gathering around a big table and enjoying a picnic style dinner. ...

Happy International Yoga Day! In Yoga, as in life, it’s all about balance. The same is true for interior architecture. In my work as interior designer it is all about creating the right balance - between light and dark, smooth and rough, soft and hard, modern and antique, open and closed,...

A moodboard inspired by an interior architecture competition I successfully collaborated in recently. The design and interior styling concept for a new restaurant in Zurich is all about the shades of burgundy and mustard, in combination with natural materials, wood and leather...

The home of the Stockholm based interior designer and blogger Hanna Wessmann is quintessential Scandinavian – clean lines and muted tones. The incredibly restrained palette isn’t just very elegant, it also acts as a blank canvas fort he carefully selected pieces of furniture and works of art. ...

During this years Salone del Mobile, Italian fashion brand Marni presented a new home furnishing accessories range: chairs, chaise longues and rocking chairs alongside numerous small tables, lamps and vases made of metal, wood and hand-woven PVC cord in brilliant colour combinations. The items have all been made in Colombia by a group of women who have gained independence through work. Marni Ballhaus and a colourful choreography of Cumbia with traditional full circular skirts, inspired by the culture of Colombia, set the backdrop for the presentation. ...

The combination restaurant and flower shop never fails to delight me. When it comes in form of a simple and modern interior design with pure materials and moody colour atmosphere it is unbeatable. When in Milan, make sure to check out newly opened Potafiori. And if you feel like more flowers and amazing food, I highly recommend Fioraio Bianchi Caffè! ...

French Bistro meets Scandinavian minimalism. The design of Usine puts a new twist on industrial interior style and is another great project in the Stockholm restaurant scene. Designed by Richard Lindvall, Usine functions as a bistro, bar, café, take-away as well as a gallery space. ...

Sun-kissed interior design // Perched atop a steep cliff on the island of Ibiza, this beautiful house by Paris based Laplace & Co glows from within. The interior filled with mid-century pieces opens seemlessly to the surrounding, breathing and reflecting the brightness of the summer sun...

Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen has created a cast-concrete lamp for Italian brand Flos. I love the raw, brutalist material and form and could see it as a perfect juxtaposition in an otherwise very refined environment. ...

One of my favorites - as every year - at the Milan Furniture Fair: Dimore Studio ...

I just returned form the Salone del Mobile in Milan. One of the most inspiring space I visited was the newly opened Fondazione Prada, designed by architecture firm OMA. The new venue is the result of the transformation of a distillery dating back to the 1910’s and houses several exhibition areas and performance spaces. Definitely a must when you are in Milan! ...

Some more pictures of the beautiful project of Marcante-Testa. Designer: Andrea Marcante (founder of UdA architetti) and Adelaide Testa Collaborators: Eirini Giannakopoulou, Giada Mazzero Photographer: Karel Balas ...

Che bello! This is another jaw-dropping renovation of a Parisian residential space. The cutting-edge design by Marcante-Testa highlights, rather than conceals the original character of the 1930s property. The designers re-functionalized the apartment, while minimizing the number of walls. A rack system made of metal sections and perforated sheet metal is set freely into the space. The new structures are designed for seeing, but not for being seen, separating transition zones from rest and private areas, thus creating separate premises for each member of the household. The movable elements are placed alongside characteristic decorative features of French homes, such as wall stuccos and cornices. I love also love the muted, but distinct color scheme - not to speak of the furniture! Part 2 will follow soon… Designer: Andrea Marcante (founder of UdA architetti) and Adelaide Testa Collaborators: Eirini Giannakopoulou, Giada Mazzero Photographer: Karel Balas ...

We love that Aesop always surprises us with unique and location-specific stores. The Shibuya shop is a beautiful combinations of reused timber, sisal, mirrors, dark steel and hues of pastel pinks, grey and bright orange. Well done Torafu Architects. ...

I think I need some moonlight in my hallway - like the Moonlight mirror and wall lamp designed by Nata Janberidze and Keti Toloraia of Rooms. ...
