Interiors | Arcade Life

meow_wolf1

Wondering what the decor might look like inside a video arcade game? Meow Wolf, an artist collective, has created an interactive art exhibit that’s part ‘choose your own adventure’ and part jungle gym. Visitors to the exhibit are encouraged to wander around, touch, experiment with and discover at will. According to one of Meow Wolf’s organizers the inspiration for the decor is derived from “…arcades, theme parks, Burning Man, grocery stores, nature…” etc – the result is quite a site to see.

Captivated by these tropical watercolors of Maja Wronska. Her painting techniques would be perfect for a hot summer print and you can find some products with her beautiful work on Society6.

Credenza Collection | Patricia Urquiola and Federico Pepe for Spazio Pontaccio

Patricia Urquiola has a way of making everything she touches turn to gold; case in point, her latest Credenza Collection designed in collaboration with graphic designer, Federico Pepe. Launched at Salone del Mobile in Milan earlier this month, the collection includes bold stained glass paneled cabinets, screens, and a table for Spazio Pontaccio, in addition to optical rugs for cctapis.

Urquiola and Pepe cite Gerhard Richter’s stained glass windows installed at Cologne Cathedral as inspiration. The contemporary glass work for the collection was produced in Italy by artisans who were more familiar with creating pieces for historic architecture, such as churches. The glass was cut and matched to drawings, then assembled and installed as delicate panels to the furniture.

We especially love the rugs. The optical effects and palette selection give the eye plenty to enjoy. Now, if only our feet could too!

Interiors | Tile Heaven

popham-design-zigzag-light

Founded by Caitlin and Samuel Dowe-Sandes, Popham Design’s gorgeous products have a way of making tile floors seem like the only floors worth having! Based in Marrakech, Morrocco, the company is intent on maintaining the traditional craft of tile-making, finding inspiration from the wealth of history and design in Morocco. Adding a bit of modernity to an age old practice, fresh patterns and color combinations give these tiles a knack for making themselves at home in any surrounding.

There are so many delightful cubes to choose from in the project 2 inch solid cubes by Ben Skinner. Made from a random assortment of materials, the project features cubed shapes sitting on a grey background – simplicity at its best.
