Yesterday I was thoroughly fascinated with the furniture that Glas Italia was producing. After looking through their glass furniture I thumbed through their site and found images of their facility. Talk about a company that practices what they preach, this place is amazing. Not only is a good portion of the building made from glass but just look at those glass chairs, stair case, ect ect. They are truly artists.
KROHN has the Scandinavian feel down to a science. I love the Monster Entertainment office that is full of nothing but black, white and teak, so beautiful. The Levi Strauss & co store looks to be located in a killer industrial loft space that has some amazing textures throughout. Can anyone identify the 4 teak chairs?
Munich, Germany based photographer Nick Frank is a very talented and has a liking of modern architecture. His latest post on the Behance network is full of amazing color and structure. Looking at the first few pictures it is hard to believe that this is a building. The way he crops and frames certain parts of this building are quite striking.
I have to love the Guardian Offices by Hufton + Crow mostly because they used so much of my favorite fabric, Letters by Gunnar Aagaard Andersen by Maharam. Not only did they manage to cover large walls with it but they have also covered Harry Bertoia’s Bird and Diamond chairs. I think Hufton + Crow did a fantastic job at creating a colorful well designed place that most of us would want to work and play in.
It has been a while since my last post about modern offices and works paces. I have to admit most of the time modern offices just look like cheaply done hotel lobbies. Bates Smarts Architects has done a great job at avoiding that stigma of “hotel modern”. There is a great balance of materials and color that define and enhance these interiors. I love when vintage pieces are integrated into work spaces, it provides providence with a personal touch.
One could easily get lost in the body of work that is presented by the international firm HASSELL. I instantly went to their “interiors” section and was treated by an amazingly diverse group of interiors. They do it all from private homes, corporate, retail and hospitality, and yes they do it well. I love the black and white room with a white womb chair against a black wall.
