Recently Remanence Interiors was invited to take part into the International Art Biennial in Houston curated by Yvonamor Palix, https://ypalixart.com/
On October 4th, during the soft opening, Remanence Interiors and 2 others Design Studio have been showing ‘vignettes’ inspired by several Artwork on show.
Personally, I decided to present an Interior Design Series of 5 Mood Boards inspired by artworks that touched me.
Here is the first design inspired by a photograph by Paola Isola. But mostly by the subject, a sculpture by Ruth Asawa (see it the Drawing Institute at the Menil Collection).
For those of you who likes photography and sculpture, you might find some inspiration for your interior design.
This inspirational board named Dialogues is based on five principles in design.
1 – Lightness
The suspension in the air of the sculpture imposes a form of lightness that it was essential to reflect. The Tulipano chairs (Habitat) meet this specification, so to speak, by their plastic material that makes the chair easy to carry and gives an airy design. A second criterion of choice is transparency.
2 – Transparency
Transparency is very much desired to echo the same transparency brought by Ruth Asawa’s sculpture. The chairs and the vase are voluntarily part of a pure design carried by glass and plastic materials.
3 – Shadow
At the same time, the gray color of the chairs and the hand-blown vase from Ikea’s, symbolizes the play of shadow wanted by the photographer Paola Isola
4 – Reflexion
Finally, to reinforce the play of shadows and repetition of the motif, the Sparkle mirror table placed between the two chairs offers an opportunity for reflection of the vase with soft and rounded shapes like the sculptures of Ruth Asawa.
5 – Black & White
In this universe balanced between black and white and shades of gray, Remanence Interiors offers this first atmosphere inspired by a photo of Paola Isola to symbolize the Dialogue between photography & sculpture.
Next Friday, another atmosphere, a local artist, this time.
All the Design Boards are visible during all the duration of the exhibition. More information here: https://ypalixart.com/
