In the previous post I guided you to a New York concept loft, Witness Apartment that is utilised in various creative ways. Today – as promised earlier – I would like to show you another wonderful concept loft. The talented team of The Playing Circle is constantly on the hunt for exceptional artists and craftsmen to bring their finest creations to a unique loft space in the Dutch capital.  Tomorrow is a big day for them, as they are opening the forth edition of The Loft  – again with a carefully curated, refined furnishing. The Loft will be open from the 14th till the 22nd of January 2017, so for those lucky ones of you who are based in Amsterdam or visiting the city these days, I highly recommend to check out this inspiring space at Vijzelstraat 77 III, 1017 HG Amsterdam. (You can see more information about the event on Facebook.)

When writing the previous post I found out about a unique concept loft in New York City that I wanted to present you, because I was pretty sure you would love it.

One year, four transformations, one space reimagined. Witness Apartment is an extraordinary two-bedroom loft in the very heart of New York City which gives the opportunity to one interior designer every three months to fully redesign it, bring in their own style, vision and team up with emerging industrial designers and established furniture brands to fill this huge space. The 2000 square foot concept loft serves as a canvas for exploration for our digital network and project partners, and provides visitors with valuable ideas and inspiration. It is also possible to purchase our favorite piece of design and art. Continue Reading

New York, New York…

I haven’t written any posts for quite a while as the past few months have been very busy and hectic but in a good way. I spent a couple of months in London, than in Budapest, than in London again, I became a graphic designer (yay!) and have been working on various exciting graphic design projects. I’ve been missing this blog a lot but I just couldn’t find enough time until now.

I hope that even after this long break you’ll still enjoy reading eszterieur.com.

In the last post I showed you a quick and easy DIY idea: decorating any spaces with washi tape. The picture with skyscrapers on it made me think of NYC so I decided to dedicate this post to New York: inspiration, apartments and little NY themed home decor pieces.

A Converted Factory in Amsterdam

When I was writing the previous post about intimate terraces I again bumped into a photo of a lovely terrace that is part of a splendid loft in Amsterdam. Not only because I absolutely worship lofts but also because the Jordaan is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Amsterdam, I decided to show you over this fantastic home in the following post. So here we go…

The Soho Loft of Michele Oka Doner

mod

 

As I explained it on the ‘About Page‘, the very first post on this blog will be about the stunning Soho loft of the internationally acclaimed artist Michele Oka Doner.

Her artistic production – encompassing sculpture, public art, furniture, jewelry and functional objects – is fueled by a lifelong study and appreciation of the natural world, from which she derives her formal vocabulary. She has always tried to speak the language of the cosmos hence being a sculptural interpreter of nature’s vast lexicon. Michele is not only a beautiful and uniquely mysterious artist, but she can also be called a loft pioneer as she and her family moved to their massive industrial space in the Soho almost thirty-five years ago – at a time when lofts were still uncharted territory. This grandiose and extraordinary property provided enough space for her work as well as for her family (she is a mother of two). The natural colors, materials and shapes used in the apartment are in perfect harmony with her pieces of art inlaid all around in the space. The pictures show clearly that Michele has a lot of talent in blurring boundaries between art, design and architecture.
