It’s like I say time and again. If you have to drag your sorry self into work on a Saturday then it certainly helps if it’s somewhere cool. How about the San Francisco Union Square offices of online lingerie company True & Co. by Kendall Ermshar Design? Cool work place. Cool view!
I wanted to share a couple of new projects by super creative Polish architecture firm mode: lina. I love how it’s completely obvious that these guys just like to have fun and think people should enjoy their environment, even if it is where you work. This first workspace is that of Brain Embassy – a co-working and creative space in Warsaw. Wow the energy of this space is amazing! Great colours and industrial vibe and lots of versatile spaces to grow that business into something totally awesome. Note the play on “synapses” throughout.
This next project is the new mode: lina offices located in a modernized townhouse in the trendy and fast developing Poznań neighbourhood. With a minimalist and monochromatic palette, this just goes to show how cool this team is. This is all they need.
Why can’t I have this kitchen by Copenhagen-based KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri? (You may remember my previous post on them here.) Fabulous bespoke cabinets not to mention those black steel windows and wide plank oak floor. Love. Love. Love. While I’m at it I’ll take the office and that wine fridge under the stairs as well. There’s something so sexy about handcrafted and custom.
This Old Hudson is a creative studio available for rent in Hudson, New York. Over 100 years old, this picturesque space by Zio & Sons is perfect for photography projects, a relaxing weekend away from the city, or gatherings of creative minds. This is Unit 1 (Unit 2 will be featured later today): A color palette with the perfect balance of whites, greys, and weathered-wood tones is incorporated throughout the studio, embracing a blend of old and new. The result is an inventive and charming space, thoughtfully curated to evoke a feeling of casual luxury. Find it on Airbnb.
