The GardenRoomStyle Moodboard – w2/2023 flows from brutalism, funky carpentry, aluminium garden accessories, coloured glass to the one and only Roberto Burle Marx. Let’s go and check things out.
GardenRoomStyle Moodboard – w2/2023
- London, Paris, Hollywood. The Carpenters Workshop Gallery produces and exhibits functional art by international artists or designers, both rising and established, going outside their traditional territories of expression. On show from 12th Jan-22 April in Paris will be seriously groovy wood furniture created by Brazilian José Zanine Caldas.
- Brutalism, find this architecture so fascinating. Frequently seen in London, it can also be found in other places. Such as the tropics. Of all places, puts a different spin on things. Cause there you can surround it with lush greenery that elevates it to a completely different level. 13 works of Brutalism in the tropics can be seen here.
- This is a Sherazade Patchwork, coloured glass sliding door. How stylish and elegant. Even though it’s for indoor purposes, I reckon this look has huge potential for the outdoors. As privacy screens or just fine decor.
- HYDRO is a limited-edition chair created in a collaboration between aluminium producer HYDRO and designer Tom Dixon. Like the chunky curved pattern. Practical it is too being light and stackable. The choice of setting for promoting this chair is ace.
- And on the subject of metal. This scene is entitled The Hot Tin Roof Garden and featured at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2022. This is very much about keeping it simple. Materials, colours and sweet greenery. Modernism at work.
- Roberto Burle Marx. Keep seeing his name left, right and centre. Should have been in New York’s Botanical Garden in 2019 to check out the exhibition Brazilian Modern: The Living Art of Roberto Burle Marx. Seems I missed a fine horticultural tribute.
