The innovative design of PURO Krakow Kazimierz Hotel

The innovative design of PURO Krakow Kazimierz Hotel

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Design

We are in Kazimierz, the Jewish quarter of Krakow which is becoming the coolest and most innovative part of the Polish city. The creative awakening has attracted lifestyle brand PURO Hotels that have decided strategically to place in this part of the city its fifth property, precisely to meet the needs of creative designers, design lovers, and art lovers.

In fact, PURO Kraków Kazimierz, designed by ASW Architects and Conran & Partners, has been tastefully decorated and has a particular focus on installations, street art, and modern design. In the 228 rooms, as well as in the suites and common areas of the hotel, there are numerous renowned brands in the field of furniture such as: Carl Hansen & Son, Fritz Hansen, ByLassen, Mater, Gubi, Moroso, Baxter, Fogia and Kettal, next to the & Tradition fixtures and hand-knotted carpets by Golran 1898.

The care and quality of the project proposed by PURO Kraków Kazimierz can also be guessed by the fact that two street artists were hired to make the experience in this structure truly special. Nawer painted a futuristic mural on the walls of the reception, the visual artist Mateusz Szczypiński contributed two collage of landscapes and the Spanish Javier Martin designed a neon light installation to welcome guests. To complete the whole there are also three different works of art inspired by Kazimierz made by five Polish illustrators.

This hotel promises a stimulating and quality experience, to discover the beauty of a neighborhood that has so much to offer, inside and outside.

Maria Paton creates fantastic digital collages

Maria Paton creates fantastic digital collages

Giulia Guido · 2 years ago · Design

Maria Paton has succeeded in bringing the art of collage to an almost unattainable level. Her work has nothing to do with the classic collages we are used to.

Maria studied graphic design in Spain, where she was born, then moved to London where, in addition to forming a band, she developed her art.

The Spanish graphic designer is deeply in love with the process of building her works. That cutting and gluing pieces of magazines, newspapers, and photos that has something childish, primordial.

Over time her technique has refined and today Maria completes her work thanks to technology. Once the composition has been created, she scans it and adds color digitally. Her style is undoubtedly influenced by artists such as Hannah Hoch, Louise Bourgeois, Ana de Mendienta, Mona Hatoum and Shana Moulton, but what inspires her work is what surrounds her, reality and everyday life.

Beosound Edge is the Bang & Olufsen’s enigma

Beosound Edge is the Bang & Olufsen’s enigma

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Design

Beosound Edge is driving the web world crazy, presenting itself to the public as a sort of black hole in furnished rooms. The enigma has finally unveiled: this is the new minimal wireless audio speaker made by Bang & Olufsen. The Danish brand has focused on designer Michael Anastassiades who has created an object designed to be placed on the floor or mounted on the wall, but that could also be an elegant minimal centerpiece. Approaching the mysterious object reveals microscopic holes created with the laser, to make it easier to touch. Michael states that:

“It looks quite surreal as an object, because of the sudden depth change. A gap between the two materials would have allowed a tolerance to exist. Here, there is no tolerance, and the in-between space does not exist anymore which is amazing”.

Bang & Olufsen presents a product of design and quality that is based on revolutionary acoustic technologies, called active bass ports. The brand’s concept manager adds that:

“With Beosound Edge, we are bringing forward a timeless design masterpiece that inspires the imagination with an interaction and experience never before seen in home audio from a distance it is monolithic and discreet, hiding everything that suggests technology, yet it is unforgettable in sound performance punching above and beyond what you would expect for the size of the speaker”.

“His House and Her House” is new Wutopia Lab’s project

“His House and Her House” is new Wutopia Lab’s project

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Design

The Chinese architecture studio Wutopia Lab has made two spectacular large-scale installations called “His House and Her House”. This project sees architecture, in particular, the symbol of house, as a reason for reflecting on what in China is perceived as a culturally connectable space for women or men, as well as their conceptual relationship with food. The two case-installations have colours that can easily be traced back to the sexual identification, pink for women and blue for men and are located in Dameisha Village, an urban shantytown in Shenzhen.

According to Wutopia Lab, the project is based on the fact that in China public kitchens and restaurants are presumably male-dominated, while private domestic kitchens are mostly for women. So we have on one hand His House, in shades of green and blue (as a tribute to the palette of Henri Matisse) composed of a meditation room where the bacon falls from the ceiling and, in contrast, Her House sprinkles feminine energy with its afternoon tearooms and other stereotypically feminine activities.

The intention of architects was to celebrate the expressive differences of their sexes, however, the project has attracted criticism from the West for its reinforcement of gender stereotypes.

So, what do you think?

The Breadway Bakery looks like a Wes Anderson’s movie

The Breadway Bakery looks like a Wes Anderson’s movie

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Design

For many years now, the aesthetic inspired by Wes Anderson‘s films is totally colonizing the world and now it has also arrived in Ukraine, with the Breadway Bakery. This 84 square meter café located in the center of Odessa, offers an aesthetic that focuses on pastel pink and makes us think of places like Pink Zebra, of which we had previously spoken here and at the Prada Foundation’s Bar Luce.

In fact, the interior designer from Kiev Lera Brumina and the architect Artem Trigubchak were inspired by the same incredible atmosphere of the Milan cafeteria. The contrasting but complementary colors of bright blue and coral play with the American pop aesthetic, making this space an harmonious triumph of pastel tones and textures. Each color has a specific function, as it separates the rooms: the blue marks, in particular, the take-out area, while a gray area adds a contemporary touch to the structure, where visitors, seated in pink velvet chairs, enjoy cups of coffee and sweet croissants. Ceramica Bardelli‘s glossy tiles adorn the main hall, together with the minimalist metal chandeliers.

Ok aesthetics, but the substance?

The menu is based on the enhancement of local products such as ham and cheese croissants, salmon, avocado, salad or bacon, cheese and sandwiches with onion jam. The desserts are very inviting and looked after from the point of view of cake design, after all, it could not be the opposite in such a trendy place.

Visit the coffee maker’s website to find out more here.
