Most of his designs have become cult objects, and his hotels are timeless icons that have added a new dimension to the global cityscape.
Let’s see some home design ideas by one of the greatest designers in the world?
Internationally acclaimed French creator, designer and architect, Philippe Starck is untiring and rebellious citizen of the world, who considers it his duty to share his ethical and subversive vision of a fairer planet, creates unconventional places and objects whose purpose is to be “good” before being beautiful.
Most of his designs have become cult objects, and his hotels are timeless icons that have added a new dimension to the global cityscape. An enthusiastic advocate of sustainability, this visionary recently developed the revolutionary concept of “democratic ecology” by creating affordable wind turbines for the home, soon to be followed by innovative wooden prefabricated ecological houses and solar boats. He himself lives, with his wife Jasmine, mostly on an airplane, and in Paris, Burano, and on his oyster farm in the southwest of France.

For those who love architecture, here we have the perfect post, directly from Portugal!
Architect Ernesto Pereira envisioned this original contemporary timber-clad residence called SilverWoodHouse. When contacted, the brief came with no deadline or even budget, just a simple request: the owners wanted “a piece of art, a product that fascinated them and where it would feel good to live”.
This house, located near Mindelo – a coastal area 14 miles north of Porto – inspires a holiday refuge with a soothing beach-side atmosphere. Pereira admits that “It was very important to meet the owners exhaustively, as well as their tastes and their foibles, routines and pleasures, and present a solution: the SilverWoodHouse. I decided to take the beach to my clients, so that they could feel everyday the proximity of the dunes, sand and worn wood.”

MIXING THE OLD WITH THE NEW! Here’s a great trend!
And the interior designer/architect Rotem Guy knows it! He reimagined and transformed an antique house, blending old features with new furnishings.
This Israel house was originally built in 1951 for a jewish immigrant family from Libya. As typical of the residences built in those decade, the existing structure was a tiny unit, and as the family grew, the house was enlarged.
Guy preserved the abode’s central elements and did a great job! Leave us your comments! 🙂
Here’s an article, by Canva Design School, that we want to share with you. It talks about the architect Le Corbusier, that’s a great example of how the creative mind does things.
Regular working day? Nooo. The architect always worked alone on his own ideas, drawings and contemplations in the morning, and then collaborated with his team of skilled employees and draughtsmen in the afternoon. If you are wondering why is that, the answer is simple: through years of work, he knew that this was the only way to produce his best designs.
If you want to be as creative as Le Corbusier, then you need to have the ability to understand yourself, your working practices, and your faults. So, here’s an advice: if you want to make the best of your work, just as the swiss-french architect did, you might follow those tips because it really was a great artist!
