Inspiring Simplicity & Honesty
As well as being brave, artful, carefully integrated into architecture and to not look too closet-like, the brief included a selection of images that held the recurring themes of Industrial and Japanese aesthetics.
Overlapping characteristics of these two themes are simple forms based on functionality and authentic, honest materials. Industrial adds a connection to urban living and exposed structure. Japanese contributes a refinement, fine details, contrast of dark and light, geometry in pattern, and with the use of screens, walls that are not walls.
