In this Monday (the last one of July ...and also the last of Mondays Made in Italy coloumn before the summer break) I want to show you some high quality pictures from a new Italian design brand.
I have to say that the brand I'm showing you today -Irial-Visual- is also based close to the area where I live, maybe it was this proximity to Venice, which gave them the inspiration to transform beautiful images in mosaics?
In fact, the peculiarity of Irial Visual is to start from an ancient tecnique (the mosaic one) and to fit it into new contemporary forms and transform it into decorative element for our homes.
The idea is to create small 'works of art', decorative pieces that combine into a new concept materials and photography, aluminum and high quality images.
In questo lunedì (l'ultimo di luglio...e anche l'ultimo Mondays Made in Italy prima della pausa estiva) ci rifacciamo gli occhi con delle immagini che vanno oltre la semplice fotografia, e con un nuovo brand rigorosamente italiano.
Tra l'altro, l'azienda di cui vi parlo -Irial Visual- ha sede proprio qui dalle mie parti, e sara' forse la vicinanza con Venezia che ha dato l'ispirazione per trasformare immagini proprio in mosaici?
Infatti la particolarita' di Irial Visual e'quella di partire da una tecnica antica come quella del mosaico per riadattarla alle forme contemporanee dei giorni nostri e farne un elemento decorativo molto attuale per le nostre case.
L'idea e'quella di creare delle piccole 'opere d'arte', dei pezzi decorativi che uniscano in un nuovo concept materia e fotografia, alluminio e immagini d’autore.
In these days I'm working on a concept idea for a new restaurant, and while looking for inspirations in an organic mood I felt into the images of this beautiful cafè interior.
Located in Australia, this is just one of a chain of juice bars called Pressed Juices, in particular this one is located in the city of South Yarra. The layout is really simple and in the neutral tones of timber,
that underlines the colours of the fruits and of the bottles of juice.
The space is all in white, black and natural timber, even the pendant lighs have been created with wooden fruit boxes...for sure an idea to be inspired from!
The Acapulco chair has recently become in vogue again, and it's not hard to imagine the reason: in fact it's a chair very colourful and summery, perfect for outdoor spaces but also beautiful for an indoor space, an it can fit to many different interior styles.
The Acapulco chair has far origins: in fact it was first produced in the '50s, and quickly became popular first in Mexico.
Its name derives from the well-known city of Mexico; in the 1950s and '60s, Acapulco became a hot destination for the jet set, Liz Taylor got married (again) there, Jackie and John Kennedy honeymooned there, in this glamorous, fun beachy town.
A legend tells that this beautiful chair has been invented by a French tourist visiting Acapulco in the '50s: he was uncomfortably on a solidly-constructed chair in the Mexico sunshine an, inspired by the open string construction of traditional Mayan hammocks nearby, he designed a chair fit for the modern tropics.
This original chair is usually made of vinyl cords on a metal, with an unique pear-shaped frame; it has been produced in many bright and tropical colours and has most commonly been used as outdoor lounge seating, but recently we've seen it also in many stylish interiors.
Here some samples of use...
I have told you many times about wallpapers, but much less (I would say never!) of another method, simpler and less invasive than wallpapers, to refresh the walls of our homes: wall stickers.
And today I will show you a young and quite new Italian brand of wall stickers for Mondays Made in Italy coloumn: Evergreen Orange.
A young brand born from an idea of Caterina Ongaro, a creative with experience from graphics, design, photography and filmaking, and which involved other Italian designers and artisans with the aim of producing high-quality wall stickers.
But...why choosing Evergreen Orange wall stickers?
Vi ho parlato più di una volta di carte da parati, ma molto meno (anzi direi finora mai) di un altro metodo decisamente più semplice e meno invasivo per abbellire e rinnovare le pareti di casa: gli adesivi murali.
Ecco, ve ne parlo oggi presentandovi un marchio di adesivi d'arredo rigorosamente Made in Italy: Evergreen Orange.
Un brand giovane nato dalla mente di Caterina Ongaro, creativa con carriera che ha incluso grafica, design, fotografia e filmmaking, un marchio italiano che coinvolge anche altri designers nonchè artigiani italiani per produrre adesivi a parete di alta qualità e personalizzabili in diversi colori.
Ma vediamo un pò innanzitutto perchè scegliere gli adesivi murali Evergreen Orange come sistema decorativo per le nostre case?
