Our leafy ur­ban oa­sis brings the out­doors in

Wallpaper - - News -

We were moved by the prin­ci­ples of bio­philic de­sign to cre­ate a space that seam­lessly blends the do­mes­tic and the nat­u­ral. In­spi­ra­tion came from crafts-fo­cused brand An­other Coun­try, whose ‘Ori’ mir­ror is hinged so it can be ori­ented to guide day­light into a room, thus en­gen­der­ing a sense of well­be­ing. In a fur­ther at­tempt to bring the out­side in, we looked at Swiss com­pany Wormup, whose home com­poster is an ele­gant al­ter­na­tive to stan­dard com­post­ing so­lu­tions, with its struc­ture of mod­u­lar, sleek burnt clay cylin­ders. Our in­te­rior gar­den space is com­plete with Luca Nichetto’s ‘Ese­dra’ sunbed – a ter­race lounger good enough to hold its own in­doors – and Quartier’s ‘Geta’ planters, their sil­hou­ettes in­spired by the epony­mous Ja­panese wooden san­dals, while Far­row & Ball’s new ‘Paean Black’ pro­vides a serene back­drop.
