Ring was envisioned by artist Arnaud Lapierre and was a project implemented in VENDÔME square, Paris, as part of FIAC Art Fair. We received some information of the project from the developer, and we are happy to share them forward: “Ring is an installation which takes into consideration the urban space networking : the rhythm, flow, organization and spatial hierarchy. The installation embodies a visual effect that is to connect all of these interactions through the implementation of an optical effect: the repetition of an cubic mirror to break the perception of the place. This dynamic installation changes the relationships between individuals and the space they are going through.
“Ring” invites the visitor to play with the installation and space on two levels: The very first approach would be more related to experience a change in the urban areas: as a temporal kinetics. The facets of each cube reflects the place and reconstruct a paradigm that breaks the reading of the course. Ring work at this stage as a visual intrusion, an acceleration that changes the perception of the visited place. This is a spacial rediscovery. In a second step, the installation proposes to get inside, to see his own image multiplied to infinity, which collides with urban detail, it is now a place outside time and outside spatiality, in total rupture with the outside principle . The vision is more intimate”. What is your opinion regarding the contemporary art installations we feature on our site? Would you like to see more similar projects in the future?
Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.
Create height with items such as plants, artwork and books. Alternate taller pieces with shorter items such as peite vases, as shown below in the A Beautiful Mess studio living room. Not sure where to start? Choose a cohesive look and go for it! The next shelf vignette featured at Emily Henderson showcases a “Desert New Age” style, which welcomes earthy tones, tribal patterns, succulents and mineral specimens, among other pieces. In fact, in the next image we see the exact same shelf, this time styled to create a Playful Scholar look featuring neutral, masculine colors. Note special touches such as a globe and a bust displayed in a cloche. Incorporate a few unique conversation pieces into your shelving display for added interest.
