Inspired by the eclectic markets of Bogotá, Colombia, Marni‘s installation for Milan Design Week boasts bold colors and shapes from the exotic faraway land.
The Marni Mercado de Paloquemao is linked to the theme of the Expo Milano 2015, offering unique pieces released in several colors as well as a banquet where fruits can be tasted. Fruits become sculptures in metal and pvc, which may turn into containers, in larger sizes, or decorative items for centerpieces, in smaller sizes. source : trendland
Once a year, interior design attracts the attention of all art lovers in Madrid, the capital of Spain. Casa Decor 2014 took place in the old headquarters of the Association of Architects (COAM), where the best decoration professionals participated to the event. They transformed the old rooms of the place into breathtaking jewels of interior design. Here is one transformation :
In this imaginative style, whimsy is given free rein. The cheerful colour palette includes reseda, mandarin, lime green, red and raspberry, teal, light grey and apricot. Powerful monochrome surfaces and surprising colour progressions cover furniture, objects and entire walls.
Jade, mauve and matt gold accentuate the delicate play of colours such as midnight blue, fir, and aubergine. Against the background of nuanced tones such as these, stylish exhibits and unique items of particular elegance are displayed to best advantage. Lights and accessories add a touch of Asian poetry; decorations have an enchanting, atmosphere-laden density.
Natural materials, simple forms, subdued furniture and accessories heighten the unassuming chic. Diffidence is trumps. Pastel colours make for a carefree atmosphere and range from taupe, violet, peach, and skin tones to grey, sand, white and black. Compositions featuring natural stone, wood and cork used in innovative ways make for a smooth transition between indoors and outdoors – never rustic, always sophisticated.
The use of monochromes enhances their effect. Linear patterns are used sparingly, but in ways rich in contrast. The formal language is objective, concise and geometric with sharp contours preferred. The play of light and shadows emphasizes the graphic effect of three-dimensional objects. New editions of classics and austere original designs transmit clear signals here. The focus, consistently, is upon functional perfection.

An invitation to distant inner journeys. A desire to get away and a wish for openness to the world are animating design and the art of living. Traveling coolness is looking for new lands, unseen vistas, far-off spots where adventure and wonder are at hand. Globetrotters and nomads, amblers and bushwhackers are heading out to discover the Other and sketching the shifting cartography of a mobile, fluid, cosmopolitan and more human world. Guaranteed disorientation.
