Patterns as Time, Innovative Interior Design

Patterns

Patterns as Time is the name of the presentation of two Japanese design-studios; AtMa and Noiz, they both collaborated with DNP (Dai Nippon Printing) Innovative Design Center for Milan Design Week 2019. The presentation is clearly divided into 2 spaces: on the left, in full color, the installation ‘Time Printing’ by AtMa and ‘Patterns of Nature’ on the right in black, white and grey. The installations have in common that they are made in transparent layers and change colors in a subtle way. Walking through this installation is a fairytale-like experience, or maybe, if we get more poetic; a high-tech artificial fairytale forest where light, sound and color come to life. And, let’s not forget, this all is designed for your home. (or maybe for your store) It’s interior decoration.

The Good thing about collaborations

We, at Mimi Berlin, feel that i’ts always interesting to see ‘creatives’ and ‘techs’ working together because both disciplines can serve eachother to reach the next-level. Collaborations like this also can simply save time, so there’s more left to create new things. Why invent the weel if it’s already there, or why come up with ideas that already have been produced? What do you think? Let’s make some conversation below!

Wall of Dolls Milan

Wall of Dolls Milan / Il Muro delle Bambole

The ‘Muro delle Bambole’ is a protest, or a way to highlight violence towards/killing of women: that’s femicide in one word. The Wall of Dolls Milan can be found outside, in the Via De Amicis 2. It’s a very grim and gloomy installation of a collection, with maybe hunderds of dolls: tattered, dirty and grey (because they’ve been outside since 2015) they hang from a metal rack.

Amongst the dolls are posters which explain what you’re looking at, images of women who died and also some dried out flowers. So we guess it became a monument as well to remember the female victims of (domestic) violence.

The initator of these walls, which are scattered througout Italy, is Italian TV host Jo Squillo,  she works with the organization ‘WeWorld’ in Italy. Continue reading

An Adult Playground by Superflex in London

One Two Three Swing! Work by the Superflex trio is on show at the Tate Modern in London. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team’s Mr and Mrs J. went to this exhibition and took these images for us. We aren’t quite sure if they were impressed. We need to call them and check it out. In the meantime we suggest you visit here to learn more about this exhibition.

Town and Concrete Creative Studio

Town and Concrete Creative Studio

Town and Concrete is architect Cyril Lancelin who started this creative studio in 2016. Mr Lancelin practices *Parametric design. (in layman’s terms: He creates his designs with geometrical shapes on which he sets a bunch of calculations, or algorithms, loose) Lancelin creates projects; he imagines art Installations and private houses. We feel that on one hand they look friendly, almost childlike or made for children, and on the other hand they seem brutalist 1970s monsters. The “Green Chapel”, for instance, is an inflatable one, just as House “hemi” it is ‘situated’ in Normandy, France. The installation ‘chain’ is travelling from place to place (we guess it’s inflatable as well). The House ‘hill’; an outdoor shaded patio with parametric walls as limits, is imagined in Los Angeles, USA.

We aren’t quite sure how many of these creations are actually made, because we only could find renderings made by ‘Town and Concrete’, (that answers our question probably) although the latest work “knot” seems to be: see that on designboom.com

Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov

Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov

The Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov are installations and digital prints of entirely upholstered rooms in which he stages animals in white. We, at Mimi Berlin, think they are wonderful. We would transform our house into Rasulov’s Carpet Interiors but we dont own a vacuum cleaner: so that’s a no go, period. Farid “Rasulov is active across a wide range of artistic media – large scale paintings, installations, 3D graphics, animation and sculpture.” (read more faridrasulov.com)

Dogs in the Livingroom is an installation from the solo show at the Raboan Moussoin Gallery, Paris in 2014.
