Flexible Home Working Spaces

Flexible home working spaces. There is a growing need to transform some domestic environments into small temporary offices.

flexible home working spaces

The life of all of us is increasingly nomadic, unpredictable, subject to sudden and unexpected changes that lead us to change house more often than once, or to live it differently depending on the periods of existence and the phases of the day. Work contracts are increasingly limited in duration or involve “smartworking” phases: this leads people to work even from home, making it necessary to transform some domestic environments into small temporary offices. In this context, there is also a growing need to create coworking environments, thus saving costs and increasing productivity, sharing and interaction.

coworking spaces

Shared spaces, more and more hybrid. No walls, barriers or other obstacles. Versatile multipurpose tables, monoblock kitchens, comfortable sofas for drinking tea or discussing business. Everything must be flexible, convertible and above all smart!

Bulky furniture is replaced, for example, by mid-room furniture or temporary glass walls, possibly in a transparent finishing. One of the things modernist architecture has taught us is to make places dialogue, whether they are the rooms of a house or the interior with the exterior. Where it is possible, to connect spaces, to knock down walls and let light in, which is the true luxury of today.

The today goal is to move from the partition to the screen. For this reason, the use of screens is back in fashion, but with a different value compared to the privacy function that they had in Liberty contexts of the early ‘900. Today they become real decorative elements. Screens of ultra modern and innovative design, discreet but at the same time almost indispensable for the pleasant visual impact they create.

In this age full of work uncertainties and radical changes, many people rent warehouses or large apartments, making them both offices and houses to live in. The design is therefore minimal, “light” but very functional. The kitchen becomes a dining room, a working station, a canteen and a meeting place for coffee. The living room can be transformed into a meeting room or a place to receive customers, depending on requirements. Everything mixes, everything changes over and over again.

My Holiday Home in Formentera

My holiday home in Formentera. On holiday in the Balearic Islands, enjoying the sea and the sun in a house full of charm.

baleari-islands

Formentera is one of the most exclusive destinations to spend your summer holidays. Wonderful beaches, crystal clear water, trendy clubs and nightlife all night long. Being one of the most popular destinations, Formentera is very expensive in terms of accommodation, so it is advisable to rent or even buy a holiday home, away from the town and surrounded by nature so as to enjoy the tranquility of a magnificent island.

What is the best way to make a holiday home cozy, chic, and comfortable at the same time? Now we will introduce you to our ideal holiday home through photos, tips and much more…

The Furnishing Style

The furnishing style is typical of the one of the islands in general, but in a softer, more essential and sophisticated version: white, wood and wrought iron are mixed with pastel shades that recall the colors of the sky, the sea and the surrounding vegetation such as light blue, green but also pink or red, the important thing is not to exaggerate too much with the color so that the visual impact does not result too “violent”.

The Minimalist Style

wogg roya armchair

The minimalist style. That’s how your home has to look to be truly minimalist.

wogg roya armchair

Minimalism is considered the purest expression of modern aesthetics; it entered our homes at the end of the last century as a manifesto of intentions, making the cleanliness and simplicity of its forms the rejection of a lifestyle dominated by the values of consumerism and emptiness appear. However, once the image of bare austerity that had characterized it in the nineties has been overcome, Minimalism changes, becomes softer and warmer, generating welcoming environments made of light and harmony.

wogg alfredo table

 

When the Minimalist style was born:

The expression “minimalism” spread in artistic contexts during the sixties, but its roots lie in the European cultural climate of the early twenties. Immediately after the First World War, indeed, in a climate of change and desire to overcome past experiences, Minimalism sees the light as an ideological movement even before as an aesthetic expression. Its origin is closely linked to the birth of the Modern Movement and Functionalism which, starting in 1919, were developed in the Bauhaus, a school founded in Germany by W. Gropius and which has become the most important forge of thought and experimentation in the fields of art, design and architecture. Minimalism contrasts with the historicism that had already emerged in art and architecture at the end of the 18th century. Through the elimination of ornamentation, considered useless and the legacy of an outdated culture, we want to enhance the beauty of what surrounds us. By eliminating what is superfluous, materials and forms are enhanced, there is no longer room for individualistic artifices and an essential, simple, universal design that is comprehensible to all is achieved. Its peculiarity is an aesthetic made of clean lines, flat surfaces, pure geometries and natural materials.

Why the Minimalist style is so popular:

Minimalism continues to be successful thanks to the universality of its principles. In an age marked by excesses, frenetic rhythms, artificial images overloaded with colours and details, the minimalist house marks the space of order, balance and serenity. The use of natural materials, first and foremost wood and stone, the use of a few colours – with a preference for white to maximise the diffusion of light – the simple geometries of the square and rectangle and, finally, the renunciation of objects that are not considered essential to everyday life, make up relaxed, intimate environments, where one can find oneself and take refuge from external chaos.

wogg 54 desk

Let’s discover now how to give life to the house of our dreams:

The Living Room

Minimalist style doesn’t mean monastic life. Renouncing the superfluous in order to enhance the function of everything must, however, give rise to comfortable and welcoming environments, which invite you to rest and release well-being. The space in the photo conveys all this: a rigorous environment with clean, clean lines, no frills, yet warm and inviting thanks to the generously cushioned sofas.

The Dining Room

Here are other excellent examples of how minimalism and the home intimacy can coexist in perfect symbiosis. The dining area of these houses has been stripped of all frills: nothing disturbs the eye, nothing distracts from the function. And yet, if you look closely, there is nothing missing that could limit its use, nothing that would affect its practicality.
At the same time, the feeling we have is of an intimate and welcoming environment, far from the cold image that often accompanies the idea of minimalism.

The Studio

The studio is the home space where calm and order cannot be lacking, regardless of a life inspired by the principles of Minimalism. The need for balance, the need to withdraw into an introspective and reflective dimension impose the choice of a few, highly studied elements: a table, a chair and a lamp. Here, more than elsewhere, the lines become clean, the materials authentic, the basic colours suggest concentration.

The Bedroom

The bedroom is the real test  for those who want to try their hand at a minimalist lifestyle. In this environment, indeed, it is easy to lose sight of the rigor that leads to peace and balance. The minimalist bedroom is therefore sober, with sheets that are strictly white or, at most, grey. And the same can be said of the walls. The only colors allowed to interrupt the whiteness of the linen are those of wood or concrete, strictly natural.

Decorating a Small Living Room with Style

sancal talo

Decorating a small living room with style. Our best tips for a small and cozy living room.

sancal talo

Houses and apartments are getting smaller and smaller. In large cities, square metres are being drastically reduced and, as a result, the number of rooms available is also being reduced. In this context, the living room is often sacrificed and combined with the kitchen at the risk of losing welcome and even style. Let’s see then some tips for decorating a small living room with style!

sancal club

Multipurpose decoration

It’s the must for every season, indeed furniture and decorative objects have different functions. This not only saves space, but you can also change the decoration every time you get tired without your pocket suffering. For example poufs which can be turned into little benches or low stools which can be turned into coffee tables.

Another possibility is to buy a TV cabinet that incorporates drawers or shelves, so you can use it as a space saver. As for accessories, there are glass glasses that serve as vases, candle holders or ice buckets. If you have a wicker basket, you can use it to store blankets, pillows, magazines or anything else that comes to mind.

Choose small but comfortable sofas

The huge sofas with multiple seats occupy an entire corner of the room, if not more. Even an L-shaped sofa is a nuisance for small spaces: it recharges the room too much and leaves no room for other things. One or even two small coloured sofas will be a winning choice!

A great way to use the space is to combine the sofa with one or more poufs so that it acts as an extra place that you can move from one room to another in case of need.

Light, neutral and pastel colours

Light colours,  in pastel and neutral tones give a sense of spaciousness and luminosity. They represent a safe bet for a small living room. If you want to give a touch of more vivid color, take advantage of fabrics and accessories such as cushions, lampshades, blankets or carpets and place them in strategic points of the room. This way, you won’t overload the space and break with the monotony.

sancal copla

Playing with lighting

In a small living room, lighting is your best ally. If your room is provided with windows, take advantage of the natural light that comes in and do not use shutters or dark curtains. Also, do not put large furniture in front of the windows.

For what concerns the artificial light, it’s always better to avoid putting extravagant ceiling lamps that make your living room smaller. Use table lamps or floor lamps at strategic points, such as next to the sofa or on a coffee table, so that everything is in harmony and space remains free in the center of the room.

Bookcases to exploit the heights

For a small living room, order and cleanliness are essential. Also verticality. The more shelves or vertical furniture you use, the more space you have. As small as a living room, playing with heights is very useful to get the most out of the floor space, especially in long rooms where there is more chance that any furniture, floor plan or accessory will stay in the middle of the room.

The Bauhaus and Knoll World

bauhaus architecture

The Bauhaus and Knoll world. Knoll celebrates its ties with Marcel Breuer, Mies van der Rohe and the Bauhaus school of architecture.

bauhaus architecture

This year marks the centenary of the Bauhaus and for this occasion Knoll has decided to celebrate its ties with Marcel Breuer, Mies van der Rohe and the famous school of architecture through special editions and a renewed commitment to give a future to the history of architecture and design. Having roots in the memory of a community and making them live in the present is a duty and a responsibility reserved for a few: an honor without doubt, but also an act due to a history that was born particular and then become universal. Like the one that unites the whole Knoll world and the Bauhaus, a scenario in which one of the most intense battles for the affirmation of that modern industrial style of which Knoll will be and still is an absolute emblem has taken place.

knoll style

Today when we talk about Knoll we think of an abacus of materials and compositional elements of the project that are not only those of the modernity of Bauhaus, but, we can say, those of always, of all the timeless modernity. And then, as now, it is the people and designers who keep the company’s identity clear, and who have always made it possible for an author, when he designs for Knoll, to marry its vision, becoming part of its history.

knoll furniture design

Just as it happened when the liaison between Bauhaus and Knoll was created, bringing Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer into the company respectively, two great personalities were involved: Florence Knoll, who recently passed away, and Dino Gavina. But let’s go with order.
In 1930, Mies became the third director of the Bauhaus, a school of which he will try to respect the critical spirit on which it was founded, while underlining the mission of adaptation to industrial modernity of the new German design class. The architect had just returned from the experience of the German Pavilion at the Barcelona Expo in 1929, which had made him world-famous thanks to an architecture capable of combining the essentiality of the archetype and the synthesis of the manifesto, a paradigmatic expression of the famous “Less is More”.

ludwig mies van der rohe design

In 1928, Mies was involved in research into rationalist metal tubular furniture, the symbol of modernity, with the MR20 chair-chair, from which other variants (chaise longue and armchairs) were created, which were later brought together in the MR collection. But the absolute emblem of this modernity is the famous Barcelona, the armchair that the master designed for the Barcelona pavilion at the 1929 Universal Exhibition, a true contemporary throne that today is re-presented in limited edition. This chair is a bridge between past and future – as only icons can do – that recalls the intersection of the saddle curulis of the Roman kings, here made of a chrome and polished metal that reflects the surrounding space. It is clear that Mies van der Rohe does not want a seat without history, but wants to give a future to memory, launching a new aesthetic sense based on dryness rather than redundancy. What he will bring with him from his experience in teaching is precisely this idea of a timeless modernity, of the possible union between past and future on the basis of a new way of producing, which overcomes the barriers between industrial and artisan.

Breuer, on the other hand, is a designer who best sums up the Bauhaus ideals, of which he was first a pupil and then a teacher. When in 1922 he attended the lessons of Wassily Kandinsky, who introduced the influence of pictorial abstractionism to the school, he learned to perceive the potential of the essential form.

marcel breuer design

Symbol of this cultural debt is the Wassily armchair, which uses the metal tube as its supporting structure, probably deduced from that of bicycles. With it the deconstruction of modern furniture is fully underway and the next step will be a cantilever seat, the Cesca, able to renounce even two of the usual four legs, which will be absorbed in a structure as elastic as visually and physically light.

knoll wassily

For Breuer, the need for experimentation did not become extinct during the Bauhaus years, but soon the German political climate also led to emigration, first to Europe and then to the United States. Here – like Mies – he will find a second home, teaching at Harvard, thanks to the support of Walter Gropius, who also emigrated for similar reasons. In 1966 his Whitney Museum in New York (now MET Breuer) was opened on Madison Avenue, one of the symbols that made Manhattan the cultural epicentre of the contemporary world. And it was precisely from New York that a road began that led Breuer’s design to be produced again in Europe, this time in the Gavina factories in Italy, and from there again distributed throughout the world thanks to Knoll International. A story that still today confirms that modernity resides as much in historical facts as in the spirit of the time that renews the choice.

One or more pieces of furniture made from the finest materials, a square-shaped sofa or coloured upholstered armchairs with rounded backs that liven up the room, neutral coloured floors and walls painted in elegant pastel colours are some ideas that could help you to give your home a touch of 50s.

Living room style ideas

The furniture of the 50s is the furniture of the post-war period, a period of rebirth and enthusiasm for the entire world, indeed the colours used are lively and cheerful, almost to underline the general happiness.

How to furnish a house in the 70’s style.

How to furnish a house in the 70’s style. Lots of tips to furnish your home with the design inspired by the fashion of the 70’s.

 

copla armchair sancal

 

The style of the 70’s is returning to fashion and not only in cinema, clothing or music but also in interior design. The atmosphere of the past, the revolutionary feeling and the bright colors are slowly returning to the houses and upsetting the too sober and modern style that until now has been the master.

nosso armchair sancal

In the 70’s the hippie folk style invaded the living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bedrooms, transforming them from bon ton and representative environments to kaleidoscopic and colourful universes. This is how the open spaces rich in wooden furniture, natural fabrics and objects with abstract shapes were created.

sofa obi sancal

But now let’s get on with the advice to create an environment inspired by the 70’s.

Colourful Living room:

To create a 70s style in your living room, the key word is “mix colors”! Play, fill and exaggerate with colour and especially with warm colours; create strong contrasts between the sofa, the armchairs, the curtains and the cushions without being afraid of making a mistake. The important thing is to avoid monotony and banality!

Wooden Furniture:

In the typical 70’s house, one of the mainstays was represented by wood: a material that emits warmness and adapts to any environment and furniture. It can be used on tables, coffee tables, chairs, walls and floors, in short, almost anywhere, but be very careful not to turn the house into a mountain hut!

A bit of Hippie Style:

Adding a bit of hippie style is always a winning move to create a typical 70’s style environment giving rise, therefore, to an easy and comfy aesthetic directly linked to Indian and psychedelic culture. Totems, fringes, dazzling images and blinding colours…

The White Colour:

Despite the wide use of bright colors, in the 70s white was widely used. White, in fact, at that time became very fashionable because it represented the future; this fashion was born after the American landing on the Moon in 1969 and became the backdrop for many scenes of successful films: the first episode of Star Wars in 1977, the Milky Bar in Mechanical Orange in 1971, the Los Angeles interiors isolated in Zabriskie Point by Michelangelo Antonioni in 1970.

Psychedelic Wallpapers:

If you want to create a 70’s decoration you can’t avoid to insert the wallpaper! Crazy and bright colours, psychedelic and redundant designs and pure energy. You don’t need to cover all the walls you have available, just choose one to give a touch of pure color to the environment!

Delicate, warm and pastel colours.

2019 takes a break from bright and vibrant colours to give space to minimalist environments and Scandinavian style. The walls will be white, the carpets will be in an elegant pastel colour and the furnishings will vary from cream to white, from beige to light brown colours. So let’s choose relaxing and restful colours for the eyes, bright and very modern environments!

Mixing industrial and modern styles together.

It’s the coolest trend of the moment! Even if the industrial style has already made a successful entry into our homes a few years ago, now the design requirements have changed even further evolving into a new style: Industrial+Modern. The most used examples in new projects combine the industrial style with the most modern one: the concrete of the walls or the floor combined with furniture in the most modern shapes and colors. A real game of contrasts!

Modern Open Space.

The ultra-modern open space continues to be enjoyed because it also meets the needs of space organization, to cope with the decrease in square meters available. It should be conceived as a multifunctional space that, especially between the kitchen, living room and study, should be able to be easily transformed according to the situation. You need versatile tools and furniture that can be adapted to any space, style and needs.

Modern Bookcase.

The modern and minimalist bookcase has become a must have in interior decoration. It is used close to the wall or as a divider between two rooms, creating an exclusive environment full of personality. It is not necessary that the bookcase contains only books, it can also be used as a support for plants and objects.

Design Living Room.

Lately, among the rooms that attract most interest there is definitely the living room. The place where domestic life takes place often extends to the kitchen or dining room, becoming one with it. Or the living room remains a cozy retreat to rest and relax, leaving the world outside. In both cases, the trend for 2019 will be to create as much as possible a well-kept, design, simple but very elegant living room, thanks to refined and modern furniture with never banal shapes and finishes.
