“your body is the ‘house’ of your soul” – and so it goes on but what kind of body is this house that is affected by the soul?
“The exterior of a building makes a statement on its urban environment, benefiting the society as a whole; the interior houses the user, defining comfort and making movement through space easily and confidently. This makes the interior as important as the exterior”. So, what makes them contextually distinctive?
Arguably, interior design’s profession begins with the expressed desire for Capitalism, co-exist as a newfound fascination with general psychology. The high renaissance of the Industrial Revolution in the early twentieth century gave birth to the profound idea of Modernism, calling for the principles of economy and the insisting on a continuum between object and environment. Interior design profession officially branched away from architecture as a distinct institution and placed a new importance on total integrity of design.
Like an amoeba, the realm of an interior design employ a variety of approaches in the aspects of conceptual, formal, material, socio-cultural, psychological and sensorial-perceptual to create an interior experience that is distinctive for its occupant. In the process of design, poetic consciousness became a critical device to mold the range of models for organizing design priorities that is metaphorical.
Metaphor makes use of alternative conceptual structure, ones that are able to hold and give meaningful spatial interpretation to more than what logic and practicality alone would allow. By giving the attention to corporeal, behavioral and relational nuances of space, our studio bring together the pleasure of diverse and intellect aspects of iconoclastic and eclectic interior environment. We conceive and create spaces from inside out, diffusing boundaries and witnessing a democracy in the language of aesthetic and design awareness. Considering the complexity of our design process, we make intense articulation and manipulation in the superimposition of modernism and humanism, creating a timeless impression that adds resonance value to its environment.
In the spirit of our design, we are interested in controlling how an occupant use a space, instead of spaces being designed strictly to be supportive on the occupant. We often resolve elementary design issues through a critical understanding on how geometrical decomposition of planes and mass facilitating the expression of volumes, forms, texture, materials, light and other elements which will ultimately be perceived as they surround us. This metaphorical expression ultimately refined our underlying goal to create a humanistic environment associate to our tradition and the contemporary urban context.
