Patterns from India | Part 2

The Indian spirit is still burning inside my blue flamingo guys! Don’t lose hope, the patterns about this amazing culture are on the way, as I promised! After the first post of the series “Patterns from India” we continue here with some abstract motifs, flowers, lotus flowers mostly, paisleys, blocked technique for fabrics etc which are very popular in India. They use flowers everywhere, mostly as offers to gods but in general everything is so colorful and they have amazing fabrics with so many prints! So, at this post we’ll enjoy this aspect of India depicted in patterns.

  1. Flowered theme pattern in white background via WeHeartIt  2. Diecut Tiled by David Matthew Parker  3. Indian inspired morifs in yellow by Daneisha Kay  4. Pink paisley by Janet Broxon 5. Abstract colorful motifs via Coquita 

What I learned there and really impressed me was the Woodblock printing technique on textiles. It’s very developed and common to decorate their fabrics, and it’s very interesting during the process. I found only a few for this pattern collection but if you search on the internet I’m sure you’ll be amazed.

  1. Light pink motifs via Pinterest  2&3&4. Woodblocking printed patterns via BibliOdyssey  5. Blue madras paisley delft via InsideStores  6. Magenta paisleys by Wagner Campelo

Next group is of course about flowers, in yellow and orange colors, their national color combination I’d say! Besides, marigolds are very characteristics of India, as people make welcome necklaces for visitors.

Autumn delight lotus by Soul of Birds  4. Blue Tropical Gardern Patterns by Tetiana Kartasheva via Pinterest  5. Yellow flowers via Pinterest

And we’ll finish with more flowers, in pink/red hues this time another loving color for Indian people. And mine. Lotus flower is also very appreciated and very beautiful.

Patterns from India | Part 1

I’m at last so happy to present you my first pattern collection with Indian theme! From the time I came back I dived in to working and that’s why it took me so long to prepare it. Another reason though was that I found a completely new world of patterns when I started my research. Because of that I decided to make 3 different posts with Indian themed patterns, separated by subject, to be possible to unwind this amazing new world. I hope you’ll be on board with this and enjoy them as I did!

This group of patterns is about nature of India: the magical jungle, animals that impressed me and delicious fruits!

1.Palm trees via Pinterest, 2. India poster via The Messes of Men,  3. Green leaves via ModernVintageInterior, 4. Leaves in yellow by Tas Lima,  5. Blue jungle via google images,  6. Light green jungle by BN Wallcoverings, 7. Lead elephant-Arjuna by ranganath krishnamani,  8. Pink palm trees via Pinterest,  9. Singita jungle by Cole&Son

So we started with the jungle…so many trees and plants, India is very rich in nature! Palm trees, teak forests and a bunch of so many others I don’t know!

Of course, among them, in the jungle but not only you meet a lot of exotic (for us) animals. Tigers, crocodiles, a lot of monkeys, peacocks, wild boar, deer etc…We saw all of them there but here I have only some.

1.Mad about Monkeys by Owen Davey,  2. Tigers in the jungle by Monica Ramos,  3. Tigers by Design Comb,  4.Bengale by Manuel Canovas,  5. Peacock feathers via Patterns&Prints,  6. Blue Sumatra by FabLab

Then, I couldn’t miss the elephants! They deserve a group by themselves because I could say it’s the 2nd national animal of India, you see it everywhere! It’s supposed to bring you luck and depending on the elephant’s trunk direction it’s a blessing or welcoming message etc. Don’t forget that they have also a god with elephant’s figure, Ganesh, but this will follow on the second part!

However, the most characteristic animal of India is of course the holy cow. Along with monkeys are the most common animals you run into your stay there. They are almost everywhere!! At first you feel quite surprised but after some days MAYBE you stop photographing them!

1.Cow print by Moirarae,  2. Holy cows pattern by KarenHarveyCox,  3. Grey monkeys by natalia zaratiegui,  4. Green monkeys by Mirella Bruno,  5. Brahman cattle cow in pink by PetFriendly

For closure I have some yummy fruits for you! Mangos, pineapples, papayas, coconuts and bananas are only some of them. Especially when we visited India it was mango season and there were selling tents every 10m on the roads. Delicious exotic fruits every day, what a treat!
An interesting fact is that coconut is very important to them, almost holy, they offer it to their gods, representing the desirable situation of being a better person. Cracking their ego and finding their inner truth exactly as the sweet, nurturing coconut.

Trip to…

fly_twa_india1

It’s been a while I’m trying to post something in the blog and can never find the time to do it! I’ve been very busy with work in general, but the last week I was in small vacations for pleasant projects. I’ve been to Ikaria and Chalkidiki for different reasons but I’m gonna write about it another time…because I have big news to announce..!!

I’m about to travel to a place I’ve always wanted and never believe I would! Eventually, I’m very thrilled to tell you that I’m going to India for 10 days next week!!! I’m so happy, I’m afraid I’ll jinx it! So, as you can imagine I’m going to tell you everything after I come back! The truth is I’d like to use any hints you have to offer me, any propositions or warnings for India, from you you live there or you’ve already visited. I’m going to stay around New Delhi, Jaipur, Varanasi, Agra and Khajuraho. I can’t wait!!!

Salone del Mobile 2017 | Workplace

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The third part of the Salone del Mobile posts is ready for your eyes at last! And this time it’s all about workplaces! It was a special section this year with Euroluce. As in our studio we have a lot of projects about office renovations imagine our enthusiasm when we found it out…It was very very interesting and we left with a lot of extra knowledge, company contacts and inspiration.
The sad thing is that in Greece now it’s quite difficult to apply or even propose(!) that avant-garde of technology but even though it’s more than good to know all these stuff.

So, at the first group of photos I have 2 big companies, Fantoni and La Palma, that impressed as a lot. With Vitra (that I missed to take photos unfortunately) had the most minimal and with elegance design without leaving out the technology and funcionality. I saw desks that you can load your preferences (from high, chair settings, lighting brightness, temperature and I don’t remember what else!) and customize them as you like, so when you change working place you can load all of them to another desk and feel like yours immediately!
Also, there is a photo from the installation A Joyful sense at work. Its purpose  is to breathe new life into the theory of office and workplace design by setting its sights squarely on people, in terms of their needs, emotions and experiences.
According to it, the workplace of the future will be adaptive, unfinished, vibrant and evolutionary, tailored to reality and capable of accommodating the comings and goings and needs of the workers and the way in which they use it. It will be smart, fast-paced, flexible, evolutionary and contemporary: human beings will be the key focus in a fast-changing environment. It will be happy, nourishing, fertile and sustainable – both environmentally and ethically, in terms of respect for people’s feelings, history, culture, diversity and rights.

Continuing with seating! In this area you can have countless choices…our favorite is Quinti and arper, with which we collaborate already and we are super happy. We love them and you can see why! Also, Andreu World had a very interesting booth design. I loved the velvet fabrics of Quinti, and even more in these dark colors, and the minimal design and elegance of arper.

We saw a lot of interesting alternatives of beautiful and contemporary workstations and shared break areas. Workplaces are cooler than ever! Some of the companies I distinguished were True, Estel, Nowy Styl Group. Sound absorbing separators, cable management, technologies, flexible break areas, organisation of working surface are some of the features that made you wanna work there! (Give me some work to do!…ok almost…)

Another characteristic was greenery! As a decorative element or as a recycling result on furniture and surfaces. As people spend more and more time at offices it’s necessary to bring nature inside and go on board with a more earth friendly style. Also I noticed a trend to offer workplaces beyond the ordinary, always have something to intrigue your imagination. Officine Tamborino, Sesta are two of them.

Last but not least, 3 companies that caught my attention: Montana, Florim and Unifor. For their design, for their products and their booths. Montana had a retro feeling and something that an architect could relate I think. Florim had a very interesting booth, with impressive xlarge surfaces that could cover anything. And very nice decoration with their materials as stationery. Unifor, on the other hand was something else. Their booth almost confusing, but with cool neon phrases on top of the walls and very very impressive tables. Super minimal workstations, desks and meeting tables with the minimum leg support, so that you couldn’t stay untouched.

I’m not sure anyone on this blog would be interested in workplaces but I thought it was mind opening to be there so I wanted to present them all to you! And, of course there were so many more companies that had a lot to say but here we have just a glimpse of the whole of it! Salone del Mobile was a huge experience in general and I hope I can make it again in the future, I hope you enjoyed these posts!

Salone del Mobile 2017 | Euroluce

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

‘Arrangements’ by Michael Anastassiades for Flos

The second big sector of Salone del Mobile this year was Euroluce. To tell you the truth I didn’t believe I’d be so impressed! To begin with, I saw Michael Anastassiades’ creations by my own eyes…only this could be enough. Except him though, the whole visit at Euroluce was a big experience! I felt deeply inside that lighting can be a piece of art and  really move you.

Some pavilions were very imposing, with the best of all (I could say best of all at the Salone) the pavilion of Flos. Words can’t describe how amazing it was. At first, it covered a whole block, roughly 10,000-square-foot, it had 2 floors (2nd only for vip members), with its perimeter closed, leaving only some narrow slots to have a sneak peak and raise your curiosity…and the texture of the facade was folding here and there like a concrete cloth. Beautiful! An architecture work only by itself.
So you entered the pavilion from one point and started a root very well organized, like you were in a museum. Starting from the exterior lighting fixtures, with greenery everywhere, like you were in a garden at night and continuing with several rooms that in every each of them you had something magical to discover.

Below you can see some of the creations of Michael Anastassiades that impressed me the most. He uncovered there his new collection of “arrangements”, a modular system of geometric light elements that could be combined in different ways, creating multiple compositions as individual chandeliers. Each unit simply attaches onto the previous one as if resting, balancing perfectly as part of a glowing chain’, explains the designer. I was totally fascinated by them! Check more about this series here.

At the following group of photos you can see some really interesting creations like Philippe Starck’s, in a room full of mirrors and lighting elliptical frames to create an eternal inception environment, in the name “Plus Belle”. You can see me and my friend P. posing in some of them, it was our hobby there! Other designers are Formafantasma, mobile chandeliers by M.Anastassiades in his own booth and some of the exterior lighting environment from which I don’t remember the designers.

Overcoming the sock by Flos, we continue with another apocalypse, the booth of Vibia. Beautiful design of the booth itself, beautiful lighting creations! I loved almost everything there, unfortunately it was very crowded when we visited it that I have only few photos to present. The hanging lighting spheres in combination with greenery was just amazing!

On the next group of photos I have some of Foscarini with the really impressive set up of their booth, a very cool interactive lighting system that you could change the brightness by moving your hand-not touching, unfortunately I don’t remember the designer, and [sygns] with neon installations.

You thought you’ve seen enough? Not yet!!! Below I have another apocalypse that amazed me at Euroluce: Davide Groppi. His linear creations were just fantastic! So minimal, almost imperceptible, presented the essence of light.
Also, I have some shots from Kundalini‘s booth that I liked a lot, and from Servomuto‘s booth that was very very interesting. If you want check them here, here and here.

Continuing, I have various shots by several big names such as Artemide, Panzeri, Louis Poulsen and more.

To sum up, I could say that minimal design, linear and discreet yet with such and intensity, making a big impression, the trends in lighting world got me full on board!

Salone del Mobile 2017 | Only few of what I saw

So, I went to Salone del Mobile in Milan and it was fantastic!!! We were all the girls and the senior architect of the studio where I work occasionally. It was an spontaneous decision that went really good…imagine 6 girls crazy in Milan! It was our first time and personally I still haven’t absorb all the information… It was a huge experience for sure! We spent 2 days only at the Salone and 1,5 day in Milan but it was enough to shake us 🙂
At first the exhibition is huge…..you walk and walk and walk and you never have enough! And have in mind, in all that walking you carry so much weight of the catalogues, proper exercise!
We were so thrilled to be there and see for the first time all these big brands, touch the surfaces, sit at the couches (which it was necessary to rest our feet from time to time!) see the forefront of the interior design in general. Other than that the pavilion’s design was equally interesting or even more sometimes. Our cameras were on fire and our shoulders ended up dead!

At the first group of photos you can see some branding signs that impressed me as an exhibit and what could start better this post by some big brands themselves!

As you can see on the top group of pictures, the people visiting the Fiera were countless! If you have agoraphobia it’s not the place for you. Outside on every corner people were sitting and resting, like us above talking about what you’ve seen until that time! Of course the same situation were happening inside, at every pavilion, especially on big ones where you should be an acrobat to take a photo!

I should warn you that this post is quite big, I couldn’t make it smaller, although I tried!  This year Salone, except Furniture, had the Euroluce and Workplace section that will follow in another post. So, be patient!

At the next group of photos you can see some spare views, mostly about outdoor design. I really liked the way to depict a pool at Dedon, of course Patricia Urquiola was everywhere something special and my favorite pavilion of all: the one of De Padova! You could go there just to relax from all the fuss, so zen and calm.

Usually, what attracts you the most is the feeling that each pavilion brings you on and not their products. The way they designed them and what tricks they used to show the philosophy of the company. One cool technology trick was at Zanotta’s pavilion where led walls were showing people moving like if they were real users in life. Check it below.

Unfortunately I’m showing you here only the photos that were ok, without a lot of crowd but believe me there were so many more amazing stuff!!

Living room design had it’s honor of course, huge spaces with large sofas, coffee table synthesis and decorations to make you drooling! I should notice that the mid-century style, marble, brass and of course high quality wood are still at the first line. And the master of all: tropical decor…palm trees, any trees, greenery everywhere! At some places you thought you were in the jungle.

Luxury living, as you may notice, especially when it was about dressing rooms or boudoir and bar furniture. The detail of the design, the finesse and material quality that were used was incredible. Also, I think everybody would want these benefits at their home, don’t you!?

On the next group of photos I have some pictures by Thonet, Vitra and Rimadesio’s pavilions. Only some sneak peaks to feel the concept. Especially at Rimadesio the crowd was unbelievable, I was lucky to take even these detail photos!

Object’s design and decorative vases were also something to admire, check these Egyptian style pots, I loved them! And if I should point out one designer that had his moment in Milan this year should be Jaime Hayon. He was everywhere and I loved him.

And I shouldn’t miss the 2 glass companies that impressed me a lot: Glass Italia and Fiam! Taking glass material in another level.

Next you can see 2 big companies I already loved but now even more: Bonaldo and Baxter. Notably, Baxter’s pavilion was very imposing, exotic yet luxurious environment, low lighted and beautiful textures. I spent some minutes laying at the most comfortable sofa there!

Another element that stood out at these interior environments were lighting fixtures! Besides Euroluce, among all the furniture etc. lighting is very important and at some examples I was more fascinated by them. So, here is a small collection to see what I’m talking about…

Libraries and shelving units couldn’t be missing from this post! Only by the best. Words are needless…

As every single detail was studied and everything had a role, I should notice that decorative synthesis were pieces of art! Sometimes they used just material schemes to decorate a wall or table and it was admirable. Because what is more beautiful than a circle of marble?

Last but not least, the people! Except from being innumerable they offered sometimes some really good snapshots! Of using the furniture, or examining and photo shooting them and posing on them. Of course I was one of them (last photo) 🙂

More of the photos are mine and some of my friend’s Ira Papadaki.

 

 

Pink for Spring | Bathroom

Pink bathrooms_mbf 5

Pink cabinet, cement floors and white marble, beautiful! Check it here

Everybody knows that the color of spring is pink, right? But what would you say about pink color in the bathroom?!
Don’t say it’s too girly, too bizarre or whatever before check these bathrooms out!
I think pink can be very sophisticated and smooth and it can give a joyful personality to the room. Of course, you should keep the rest of the space very minimal and quiet so that it won’t be tiring.
Below I have some examples of how pink color can make a bathroom really interesting and fresh. Like Spring! Look at it on the tiles or on some cabinet,  just in the shower curtain to add a cute tone or maybe just by pink neon light? From just a detail to the whole room pink bathrooms are an eye treat! What do you think?

Ok, maybe this is quite girly with gold accessories but I’d love to wake up there every day! Check the rest of it here

Pink with some red only on the floor. Perfect for a country house. Check out this company it’s amazing!

Pink neon light is enough to create that ambience. Of course not in your regular bathroom, it would be too tiring. Here it’s in an office building, girls-of course-bathroom! Check it out here!

Sushi-licious patterns

Hello hello again! After all this time I’m here again for some delicious patterns! The inspiration was a dinner night last week at Sushimou, the best sushi restaurant in Athens! It’s the closest I’ve ever ate to what I ate at Tokyo, it’s a real savorous experience, the chef is the best and we’re very lucky to have it here! In fact, it’s almost a year from our trip to Japan so we went there as a celebration. After that we were drunk with sake and happiness…
The results are below, enjoy!

1. Onigiri in pink by Rhubarb&Cod  2. Shrimp nigiri   3. Maki with chopsticks by Susi´s Cauldron  4. Sushi pattern by Laura Manfre  5. Japanese food box by Papern Paper Co

From onigiri to maki, nigiri, sashimi and chopsticks, everything you can imagine is here. There were so many more but I tried to be realistic…I don’t know if it’s because Japanese art is so sophisticated and advanced, maybe because kawaii style and manga have a lot of drawings and image decorations but there are a lot of beautiful watercolors or graphic works of Japanese food on the internet! I discovered a great artist, Justine Wong, creator of the project ’21 Days in Japan: An Illustrative Study on Japanese Cuisine’, consisting of 100 paintings of her meals throughout Japan. It’s so beautiful!

  1. Sushi with dots by Cecilia Renlund  2. Blue sushi by Alexandra Bond  3. Sashimi watercolor by Justine Wong  4. Sushi cat pattern by Siyiart  5. Sashimi by Rhubarb & Cod

You know, some rules of sushi eating are that you should grab the nigiri with your hands (not chopsticks) and you dive only the fish at soy sauce, not the rice 😉 . I think my favorite tastes are at sashimi dishes, i love almost everything! And imagine that years ago I hated sushi!
Of course here we have also cats in sushi and cats in soy sauce, cats can never be missing from Japanese illustrations!

  1. Sushi scrimps by Susanne Floe  2. Nigiri watercolor by Justine Wong  3. Sushi pattern by Sundra Art   4. Pink sushi by Creative Streetwear  5. Blue sushi pattern by Robin Sheldon

Shrimps, tuna, salmon, see weeds, wasabi and everything are in repeat making us drooling and smiling! Which is your favorite sushi ingredient?

  1. Sushi plate pattern by Sundra Art  2. Sushi orange by Jenny Viljaniemi  3. Sushi love via pinterest  4. Cats and soy sauce pattern by Mikaylart  5. Sushi in turquoise by Bronte Poynts 

Bright colors, even fluorescent, graphic illustrations or more realistic and depicting all these sushi patterns are perfect to gets us in the mood of Japan! Grab the chopsticks, pour some sake at your glasses and let’s go!

Ioannina, Greece

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ioannina city, the old and the new

During October I’ve had a really nice time on a long weekend at Ioannina city of Greece and finally I’ve made the time to make a post about it! It’s been a month (plus) now that I have so much work to do that I think my blue flamingo is feeling very lonely…however is always in my mind, I’m mentally preparing interesting posts to present them to you someday!

This one is about this marvelous city that I’m definitely proposing of visiting! It highlights the tradition in such a chic way, offering very nice strolls at the lake, at the old market, the traditional coffee and wine/tsipouro spots where you can warm yourself and your heart with the right company. And of course, starting from Ioannina you can explore the Zagoria villages and the mountain which is very very beautiful.

To better understand the culture and fully get in the mood of this place you should hear some traditional epirus music, I adore it! One of my favorites is this: Xechorismata by Petroloukas Chalkias.
Or a contemporary aspect of it, the Villager of Ioannina city band.
I really believe these 2 aspects of music is very characteristic of the city vibes you can’t catch by photos only. I propose to hear them while you read the post if you are into it! 🙂

Unfortunately, we had only 3 days for all, but I think we saw a lot to love the city. The first thing anyone thinks on hearing about Ioannina is the lake! Such a serene scenery and beauty of nature especially on this time of year where the tree leaves have all these hues of green-orange-yellow…They say that deeper on winter, the lake is covered by a mysterious mist and it can be even more beautiful! We enjoyed that stroll so much that definitely I could say people there are very lucky. It’s also a great place for photographers, we even saw a famous one(as we’ve been told) photo shooting his little daughter among fallen leaves, where she was doing the same at her dad with her phone! Cute, huh?

Along the shore – despite the birds and the people to look at – there are some sculptures to admire that I liked a lot. By local, famous or not (to me) artists contribute to the evolution of aesthetic level and criteria of the people. I think it’s very nice having pieces of art out in the open, for every people to get familiar with it.

As I told you another characteristic of this city you shouldn’t miss is cute cafes and small taverns where you drink local tsipouro (a very strong alcohol drink) with tasty food. In any food situation I am incapable of taking photos, it’s official! I had my mind though of capturing some moments/corners from a very cute vintage cafe where we had our morning coffee one day. It’s called “To diko mas waltz” which means “our waltz” and served coffee and more in a well preserved old house, with small rooms and old furniture. I liked the “love of books” touch at the entrance a lot.

Another highlight of the city is the Its Kale hill where the Turk commander, pasha, has his palace and facilities. From there you can have a really nice view of the lake and the city and of course learn about this era. We visited a new museum of silverware that had a huge development in the area. This museum was actually very interesting both for the exhibits and the displaying ways of them and for the renovation of such a building. I was looking at the exhibit boards and then at the lighting methods or the way they used the building structure. A must see for architects!

Also, an excursion nearby is a must! We went towards Aristi village and at its exit we stopped at the river. You can see by the photos that it was amazing! The colors of nature, the hearing of the water and the feeling of your footings at the moisty earth was very refreshing. There were also some people that were doing rafting etc it would’ve been awesome.

As you can imagine it was the joy of the photographer! A lot of desktop wallpaper choices!

Continuing from there towards Papigko villages we stopped at some water ponds called Ovires. It’s a magical place where mountain water passes by big stones, sculptured by it, creating small and larger water ponds. During summer people swim there, I don’t even imagine how cold the water must be!

The scenery there is very imposing: big mountains around you, small villages underneath them, Vikos gorge and the river whenever you can see it. Leaving Ovires we had this view in front of us! And at this mountain foot was the Small Papigko village where we stopped for lunch and exploration.

papigko_sm_01_mbf

Mountains at Vikos gorge, such a scenery!

The first thing we saw after we left our car was this scenery below…Like a fairy tale. This plane tree was like a magnet to us…we took several photos!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This plane tree reminds my the ‘Big Fish’ movie, don’t you think?

Obviously…

And then we went to eat something because after all these our stomach was complaining clearly! Lamb ribs at a tavern’s yard compensated us! 😉

It was such a great 3days vacation yet very tiring because it’s very far from Athens. I definitely recommend to have more days there, to have a car and to explore the mountain and the magical nature/villages of the area. It’s really beautiful at any season!

 

Weekend time while Fall still lasts

fallen leaves_mbf

Because you know…winter is coming and stuff! In Athens we were lucky this weekend to have a nice weather to enjoy it but it won’t last for long! Yesterday that I went out I realized that maybe it’s time for heavy coats and fluffy scarfs already! And I’m gonna prepare a nice post for you about a very autumnal excursion I’ve had in mountain Greece last month, so I’m trying to get in the mood! (This photo is from there 😉 )
Lately, I’m having a very cultural time with jazz concerts, modern dancing performances, cinema, architecture exhibitions etc. all of them with nice company and I’m really enjoying it! I think Autumn is perfect for such night outs, let’s have the most of it!!

Do you have plans for this Sunday? I wish you a great time! xxx
