Casa Decor reopens its doors lifestyle
The most important event in the home interiors sector is starting to ease restrictions, returning to Madrid’s Velázquez 21 mansion with sustainability and green interior design as core themes.
Casa Decor 2020 is reopening its doors, starting to ease restrictions for its 55a edition. From Monday until 5 July, the mansion at 21 Calle Velázquez in Madrid will be home to the latest in interior design, with sustainability and green interior design as core themes.
There will still be 64 spaces as originally planned, but the organisation has bolstered its health and safety measures to comply with current health regulations and has limited capacity to 30%. In addition, it will be mandatory to wear a mask inside the building, and visitors will have a two-hour maximum time limit to look around the exhibition. Alcohol gel dispensers will be available and visitors can be accompanied by a maximum of three people, maintaining a safe distance of 2 metres. The organisation has taken the decision to sell tickets online only at the official Casa Decor website – there will be no ticket office on-site.
More than 90 professionals are participating, including interior designers, architects, designers, landscape designers and artists. This edition brings work from the most prominent interior designers together, including Javier Uriarte, Masquespacio and The Room Studio “Casa Decor is not just a witness, but rather an active participant in the massive evolution of interior design in Spain, showcasing and emphasising these disciplines and showing the public the importance of living in aesthetic, functional, healthy and sustainable environments. This is what is behind our #CasaDecorSostenible (#SustainableCasaDecor) campaign, the 2020 edition leitmotif which aims to demonstrate that it is possible to create more efficient, sustainable and environmentally respectful interior spaces”, the event organisers point out.
The slogan #CasaDecorSostenible (#SustainableCasaDecor) aims to raise awareness of eco-efficient design and environmental protection by ushering in new trends with more sustainable and versatile materials. “Our goal is to extend the useful life of the vast majority of products used in the spaces after the exhibition closes. We will abide by the 5 Rs of waste management: reduce, reuse, recycle, recover and repair”, explains Casa Decor.
These are the principles behind Abstracción Natural, the space planned by Clara Rodríguez where plants bring life to a curious entrance hall. A green interior design concept is also shared by the space.
The entrance hall with floral decoration catches the eye for its use of vegetation as an ornamental tool in modern spaces. A style similar to that of ‘Who’s not guilty?’ by Kave Home. This 40 m2 loft invites us to reflect on the eco-life movement and the production of sustainable furniture.
Designers who will be trending at Casa Decor 2020
Casa Decor recreates the Roaring 20s in ‘The Berries Club’. Designed by interior designer Virginia Gasch (VG Living), this space pays tribute to flapper girls through bright colours, velvet prints, golden finishes and geometric mirrors.
The fusion of shades defines Spectrum by Eli Gutiérrez. The Valencian designer recaps the story of Gancedo in a space where blue, orange and pink textiles predominate.
As part of the eco-friendly movement, floral decoration defines the projects by Mercedes Rivera (MRC Lab Design) and antiques specialist Isabel Fleitas. In their designs, both artists integrate natural materials such as wood and stone into the architectural elements of the mansion.
While Rivera redecorates one of the halls of the mansion with an eco-friendly microcement, recycled glass, dried flowers, wood and fired clay, Fleitas, together with Berenis, has devised a dining room with a cosy bar area and an olive tree as a central element.
Mayice Studio and Jaime Jurado have taken a fresh approach to the colour white in their respective projects. The former studio has created a game room in the Niessen space with energy savings in the home as the main theme. The latter, Jurado, has designed ‘Lobby Hotel Art 76’, a hotel lobby that blends a Mediterranean style based on light tones and soft textures with natural materials.
