An Apartment that could have ‘A Part Meant’ for You

Posted in architecture with tags , , , on October 17, 2008 by anonimiss

Spanish architects Dosmasuno have completed an apartment block in the Madrid suburb of Carabanchel, consisting of 102 apartments of the same layout, with further bedrooms housed in protruding modules. The designers feel that “Despite the guidelines drawn on the plots, places need to express their own personality, to arise naturally, to construct themselves”. Working on this idea, they have designed this beautiful building that is geometric, pure, serene and playful, all at the same time. Maybe a little clinical/monotonous owing to the choice of color, but I think colors would automatically be added when people start living in there. And I love the huge masses jutting out at intervals, forming the extra bedrooms within. They offer a very playful dynamism to the whole built form.

Our Little White Sofa

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , , , , on September 29, 2008 by anonimiss

Simplicity is the key factor in all of Christian Vivanco designs; always in search by the unification, not only of forms or surfaces, but of functions and uses, customs and necessities, always trying to create something simple, something beautiful. Something that becomes apparent with ‘our little white sofa’. The sofa, designed for both outdoor and indoor use, was conceptualised while searching for an all-together furniture, but at the same time looking for a new expression for this kind of piece. I want one!!
