Black and White Apartment by Kasia Orwat

KASIA ORWAT have designed the interiors of an apartment, located in Poznan, Poland.
Black and white – two distant poles, two extreme opposites. As the two zones in which this studio in Poznan is organized – black and white. The coherence of this project seems to deny the contrast it is based on. But this is not only an aesthetic procedure, the strong distinction is primarily due to the carefully thought space functionality.

The white area is a living zone – where daily activities take place. Functions as kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom and work space flow and interact with each other in a natural way since there are no obvious divisions – mobile lightweight multifunctional furniture and adaptable interior lighting based on busways, ease owner’s life adapting to its needs.

Dream Home : Dakota Dunes Residence by Knowles Blunck Architecture (13 Photos)

Set in an affluent development alongside the Missouri River this beautiful modern private residence by Knowles Blunck Architecture  was designed to maximize views and daylight, yet still provide a sense of privacy and intimacy. This is achieved through the use of a twisted roof plane that bathes the master suite in light in the morning, and illuminates the living room late in the day, following the natural day-to-day routine of the clients.

Living spaces are elevated one story above grade and are supported from three cast in place concrete walls with a steel frame spanning between. This was done to help protect against structural damage when the river floods. It also serves a dual purpose of preserving views from the street to the river, something no other property in the development manages to do.

My favorite part of this home is the exterior choice of materials – the warm colored wood and the black galvanized steel frame.

Also the extensive number of windows in the house makes it so light and feels as one with nature.

Modern Furniture : Windmills by Constance Guisset for La Cividina

An oversized pouf that offers freedom in seating – Windmills, a new seating island from the creative imagination of Constance Guisset, is one of the new La Cividina products that appeared at the 2014 Salone del Mobile (International Furniture Exhibition) in Milan.

Composed of numerous coloured wedges, the pouf is like an idealized windmill that captures different shades as it turns in the air. This was the inspiration for Windmills, a product that La Cividina offers in nine different tone-on-tone colour variations and five striking, multi-coloured rainbow versions.

Windmills is available in three different diameters: 110 cm with 12 wedges, 60 cm with 8 wedges and an extra-large 180 cm model with 16 wedges. The different wedges have varying heights, giving the surface a gentle incline. This enables users to choose the height and even the colour they prefer to sit on. A grey lacquer wooden base raises Windmills off the ground, lending it a sense of lightness and accentuating the idea of movement offered by the coloured wedges.

I love the rainbow colored one – it is so much fun!

Pavilion House in Sydney, Australia by Arent&Pyke

A distinctly modern pavilion house designed by Arent&Pyke situated in Sydney’s Bellevue Hill.The interior palette adds a subtle layer of sophistication: figured marble in the kitchen and bathrooms, custom timber joinery elements, hand made concrete tiles.

The furniture, lighting and decoration complement this palette and define each space with punctuations of colour, texture and warmth. The brief was to create a light and expansive family home, with warmth and family living as its central values. Spaces were to be connected and suitable for relaxed entertaining with a strong relationship between the interior and exterior courtyard spaces.

Ledwork Modular Lights

Ledwork  is such a cool product!  It is a  highly tangible autonomous light that respond to touch and movement.  It is modular so it forms a swarm of light in which new patterns constantly emerge.

This invites to observe, explore and construct new physical configurations.
