Stunning!

Jouin Manku Studio have designed the interior of the restaurant at Strasbourg Hotel located in Strasbourg, capital of the Alsace region in France.

As conceived by Jouin Manku, the interior design for the hotel and brasserie is characterized by its authenticity and modernity, a particular idea of luxury and comfort inspired by the equestrian world, restrained and subtle.

Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku have expressed their vision of this former stud farm and historic site, in a design that is both elegant and simple. They have deliberately chosen to limit the range of materials used; solid wood, natural full hide leather and blackened or brushed metal to transpose the original life of this emblematic Strasbourg building into something resolutely contemporary and simple, whose architectural details attest to the studio’s creativity.

Samsung: The Gentleman Putpocket

Samsung - The Gentleman Putpocket 1 Samsung - The Gentleman Putpocket 2

I don’t understand French. But I still get this idea. The magician is not a pickpocket, he is a putpocket – the exact opposite. Check out this great stunt from Samsung and their Galaxy Note 3 smartphone.

Greenhouse Kitchen

greenhouse kitchen 1 greenhouse kitchen 2

I love this idea. A former warehouse in Paris was reinvented by interior architect Grégoire De Lafforest, going from a wide open 1,100 square feet to a creative, completely unique loft. Grégoire De Lafforest decided to build the kitchen in an indoor greenhouse.

To promote Fnac’s (a bookstore) week of eroticism, they installed a cool technology. A text was written on the wall and by touching the words with your hand, a voice would read the words.

The Impossible Knot of Columns by Henrique Oliveira

The-Impossible-Knot-of-Columns-by-Henrique-Oliveira-1 The-Impossible-Knot-of-Columns-by-Henrique-Oliveira-2 The-Impossible-Knot-of-Columns-by-Henrique-Oliveira-3 The-Impossible-Knot-of-Columns-by-Henrique-Oliveira-4

Artist and innovator Henrique Oliveira has transformed the Palais de Tokyo into one of his organic creations that merges from the columns and beams into a whirlwind of branches. With a title of “Baitogogo” this work is one our favorites from this master of intricacy.

On display until September of this year in Paris, the installation is influenced by his Brazilian culture and the constant usage of “tapumes,” or wooden blockades. The organic works are also metaphorically used for the descriptive growth of favelas and tumors all with the simple visual representation. It all draws back around to Brazil, and this particular space is a beautiful analogy.

The Eiffel Tower in Different Perspectives

It is one of the most well-known buildings in the world. It is, possibly for that reason, easy to take it for granted when seen from afar. After all, by 2010 over 250 million people had visited it. Yet up close it reveals another side to its character.  When seen from different perspectives, the Eiffel Tower regains the power to astonish.

Morangis Retirement Home

Morangis Retirement Home 1 Morangis Retirement Home 2 Morangis Retirement Home 3 Morangis Retirement Home 4 Morangis Retirement Home 5 Morangis Retirement Home 6 Morangis Retirement Home 7

Morangis Retirement Home located in Paris, France by Vous Êtes Ici Architectes. The building is constructed on 4 levels and is based on a Y shaped plan. This bright and lively color, stimulating without being aggressive, is also the one used for the window and door frames of the facades found under the awnings and in the bedrooms. As one approaches the building and passes below the awnings towards the yellow coating, as he is welcomed, will feel and understand the building’s harmony. One will easily understand how the building works and how it is connected to its natural and urban surroundings.

Minimalism by Betillon / Dorval-Bory in Paris

Minimalism by betillon dorval-bory in Paris 1 Minimalism by betillon dorval-bory in Paris 2 Minimalism by betillon dorval-bory in Paris 3 Minimalism by betillon dorval-bory in Paris 4 Minimalism by betillon dorval-bory in Paris 5 Minimalism by betillon dorval-bory in Paris 6 Minimalism by betillon dorval-bory in Paris 7

You really need to think creative when you barely have any room. This apartment in Paris, France, is microscopic. So French design firm betillon / dorval-bory used a minimalist approach in its design where light becomes an important element to compartmentalize the space. Using white as its primary color was key in making the apartment look more spacious than it actually is. This proves that square footage doesn’t actually matter that much, and it’s how you take advantage of it that counts.
