I think that almost everybody knows who are Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross. Of course, these are characters from “Friends” one of the best 90’s TV shows. Friends all live in the same apartment building. In between scenes shots of this building are shown, and this building is based in Grenwich Village. This building also have a small cafe on the ground floor, however this isn’t Central Perk as that was a set in LA. So did you ever wonder how their apartment looked like? A few artists have spent years sketching out the living spaces of some of the most loved U.S. sitcoms from over the decades.
One of my favourite design periods are 50’s. Swinging fifties brought many changes in politics and design. While Europe was recovering from world war two United Sates was developing consumption which changed the whey we see and understand design. One of the most recognised designers from that period are Charles and Ray Eames who revolutionised both furniture design and manufacturing with their range of moulded fibreglass chairs. Their one of the most recognisable chairs is Lounge Chair designed in 1956.
I don’t know much about Danish traditional architecture, but when I saw this old Danish island house I just feel in love. Combination of old and new elements is just perfect. White dominates the space and at the moments it feels a bit cold but whitened wooden floors, worn out furniture and red brick details bring softens and just enough of warmth to the space. Thatched roof makes the hose looks like it is from the fairy tales and I just love it.
These collages are part of art collection called Secret Garden made by German artist Enrico Nagel. Flowers and fashion editorials are transformed into surreal works of art. The models are transformed into abstract figures. Their heads are replaced with flowers, so they become hybrids half man and half flower. Mixture of nature and human brings fashion back to nature.
