Christmas window displays

Who doesn’t remember Audrey Hepburn, black suit, high bun, black glasses, pearls and… the window display in that iconic Tiffany Blue?

A window display has a lot to do with the world of the senses: the message it conveys is a desire so subtle and magical that, with few (or many) elements, it creates the wonderful story we want to tell.

City lights

Every year, in cities and towns all around the world, a ritual of light takes place. A global communion beyond the religious or festive significance of Christmas, the change in the year or the practical sense of attracting visitors and encouraging shopping and consumption. Switching on city lights for the winter solstice reminds us of our childhoods, a sense of excitement reactivated every year by our inner child or the kids who surround us in our adult lives.

The new, humane brutalism

What has become of brutalism? That groundbreaking, unadorned exhibitor of raw materials and construction materials that gave a human dimension to the formal and essential meaning of architecture.

Micro spaces for macro lives

These are unprecedented times of revolution for housing. The reduction in the size of homes is a trend that will endure, and with it, a continuous adaptation to new changing interiors. This is a reinvention that is starting with a shift in everyday activities, as tiny spaces lead to design that makes the most of every habitable square metre.

Contemporary caves

The need for a place to live and shelter from the elements and the things happening in the world, where we can watch events unfold while feeling completely protected, is one of our most ancient instincts, and one which is rekindled now more than ever. The urge to hide away and submerge ourselves in a new domesticity points to an approach to architecture and interior design that goes back to when humans used caves as dwellings.
