Sunday Sanctuary: Sao Paulo

  Different to the usual Sunday Sanctuary Apartment 61 is an experimental gallery apartment design by MNMA Studio. We are literally in mid-century furniture heaven!  Design and decor elements within Apartment 61 traverse the modernist movement that have shaped São Paulo’s architecture throughout the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.

Tone Cabinets make an acoustically balanced environment

Regularly I share news from Norm Architects but usually the designs and styling are so good I can’t won’t resist sharing them. Also look, more yellow!
One of Norm’s newer projects are these sound absorbing cabinets for Zilenzio called Tone Cabinets. Designed in a variety of sizes and available in many color ways, Tone balances out the acoustics at home or work to allow all who use it more of an ability to focus and concentrate without distraction. This would be partially useful in spaces with hard floors where sound easily bounces off of and amplifies noises.

a cosy family home, and these grey pedestals

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content.

The dining room in this apartment is so great, and maybe I like it because it has similar furniture to my own! We have the Gubi Semi pendant with a black table, ours is from Muuto, and some Muuto Visu chairs. What’s even better in this home are the grey pedestals Josefin used to style the room with.
Funny enough I have been coveting some tubular pedestal tables, procrastinating though as I’ not sure where I’d put them in our small house. As yet I’m still undecided but I’ll share ultimately what I end up doing.

See above for my pedestal picks along with accessories to sort of ‘create the look’.

Also this child’s room, which I don’t talk much about on the blog but I love looking at kids rooms, especially ones with sweet details but still pared back and a bit sparse. From experience I know it is too easy to let their spaces become overloaded with stuff, so a kids room with ‘just enough’ is the most appealing to me. Also, you can find the bunny lamp here and grid box here.

a simple upgrade for IKEA’s BESTÅ

Superfront gives IKEA owners many options for updating their favorite pieces, enough that you can completely transform your piece into something new with doors and cabinet tops or if you want something more subtle you can add handles and legs. It’s the best of both worlds, budget friendly and easily accessible IKEA blended with elevated pieces that make your furniture look custom.
We went for something more subtle, changing out the boring legs on the BESTÅ I inherited from my mom for these Slender Low legs from Superfront’s bathroom collection. Beyond upgrading cabinets and credenza’s the range also includes custom sinks and taps for your bathroom! We have the Holy Wafers in our kitchen, btw, and I love their low profile on all our bottom cabinets.

Below are a few favorites including the brass Balance legs, Mini Reflection, Parallels front kitchen panel.

Herzog & de Meuron’s Elbphilharmonie concert hall furnished with minimalist monochrome furniture

allegory desk

Italian-Danish design duo GamFratesi’s designs for Gebrüder Thonet Vienna include the Allegory desk. The concept of the desk is a really beautiful creation using the rounded shape from the cane seat Era chairs as a divider & memo board.

Allegory is a representation of an abstract or spiritual meaning through concrete or material forms. This literal expression is used in all forms of art, to illustrate ideas and concepts in ways that are comprehensible to its viewers. The circle as an abstract geometric figure to define the personal space. We believe we deserve a somewhat private and intimate place to work, write or simply sit with our laptop. We have therefore combined the traditional Thonet expression using a bend wood structure together with an iconic circular woven cane to allow to screen or being used to set personal items, messages and images.”

They also created the Targa sofa and Morris chairs with the classic Thonet details and cane material.

The internet is abuzz with the new photos of Studio Ilse’s new collaboration with Ikea, set to release in August of this year, and rightfully so. Sinnerlig is incredible with it’s natural elements and cork materials. It really is such an elevated collection for Ikea, set against the beautiful backdrop of Ett Hem hotel, which was also designed with Studio Ilse. Else Crawford herself describes it this way, “It is quite low key but we deliberately designed it like that, we see it as background, it’s not trying to compete with these fantastic icons of design – it’s a different thing. But we all need a number of lights that aren’t supposed to be waving at you.”
