We ran across this interesting art installation by Cologne-based artist Heike Weber for a cafe in Prague. Believe it or not, the floors of the venue were given their current bold look by using a permanent marker. The cafe is entitled ‘Bodenlos’, which literally means ‘loosing the ground under your feet’, hence the choice for the wavy patterns. We don’t know about you guys, but to us, this project looks amazing and we can’t help but feel overwhelmed at the amount of work invested in it.
Discovered on dsgn Wrld, the project of Heike Weber adds color and further dimensions to the space. If you look closely, you will notice how the lines on the floor create undulating surfaces, which can mesmerize and hold your attention for a long time. The artist has an impressive portfolio, which consists of various marker installations in unexpected places. Find her work compatible with modern interior design?
Speaking of “less is more” design, if your shelf offers little display space, consider opting for one or two standout items to showcase rather than a slew of small finds. In the next image, we see the Magical Thinking Peaks Shelf, crafted from glass and aluminum. Then again, there’s something charming about a curiously cluttered look, especially if items are thoughtfully curated. The Magical Thinking Pyramid Shelf below holds treasures and curiosities. When your shelves make a sculptural statement, don’t overwhelm and block them with clutter. After all, when the design is as fabulous as the Bamboo Step Wall Shelf in the next featured image, you certainly don’t want to cover up the bold form of your shelving.
It’s no surprise that our friends Down Under know how to get low when it comes to their living rooms. Designed by Georgia Ezra of G. A.B. B. E.
