Driven by De­sign

India Today - - HOME INTERNATIONAL TRENDS -

Some­times it is the jux­ta­po­si­tion of the old and the new that gives in­te­rior de­sign an edge. Ar­chi­tect Corvin Cris­tian’s idea of club­bing the con­tem­po­rary with tra­di­tional val­ues for Stu­dio Her­mes, a club and restau­rant, proves that the two can be in per­fect har­mony. Lo­cated in Bucharest’s his­tor­i­cal cen­tre and tak­ing its name from an old movie the­atre that was for­merly lo­cated at the same ad­dress, the place of en­ter­tain­ment has been de­signed such that it meets the acous­tic needs es­sen­tial for putting up a va­ri­ety of shows from cabaret to live bands. The de­sign el­e­ments fol­low a mid-cen­tury line and the stu­dio is done in a mix of dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als such as onyx for the bar, brass for light­ing and vel­vet for up­hol­ster­ing so­fas. There truly is no end to one’s imag­i­na­tion.
