Hey /fa/ can we have a general room design thread? Any sort of wall art, desk assortment, color schemes, lighting, or furniture placement will be greatly appreciated.
oh shitt, furniture design studant reporting inn
i also have a interior board but i dont have too many pins there
i like my interior like my fashion, clean, minimalist, monochrome and raw materials like wood or metal with some art sculptures/paintings here and there
not all of these are great image quality unfortunately
something different from the usual minimalist stuff posted here. not to everyone's tastes I'm sure.
Ha ha that's actually a show room and the brand is fairly pretentious so not far off.
George Suyama is one of my favorite architects. He sites all of his projects perfectly and uses natural lines and flows to integrate inner and outer spaces.
This series of courtyards is the entrance to one of his most famous projects, his own house Fauntleroy II.
Yeah that whole place is nuts, they have a decked out trailer and actual house to the left and right of the bus. Not mad about their interiors but fuck the bus is excellent. I used to know a potter who lived in a bus, until it caught fire ha ha.
very, very sick. the house name is hilarious though.
Yeah, some architectural projects have ridiculous names. I believe it was named after the neighborhood and it's the second house he built on the property, the first being Fauntleroy.
never heard of? Japanese? uuuummmmmm dat Japanese architecture
Not enough demand and far too much reposting.
Most people just want to gawp at pretty apartments and make believe they'll be wealthy enough to own one. There's not much in the way of architectural or design discussion, though I'm saying that as the guy image dumping so hey ho.
alot of Scandinavian architecture is quite similar, i guess its just a preference for minimalism or a type of cleanness wich some people have in common witch isnt necessarily bound to countries. Might have something to do with white snowy and sterile nature we have around us that makes us like it, yunno minimalist outside, minimalist inside? While italy being the oppistie
Chandelier is next level!
Peter Pan core or something.
...but seriously, that sort of room is the only place I can see it working.
Pic related reminds me so much of the island cottage I grew up in. Dem unfinished wood feels.
true /fa/ does really have poor taste in architecture and especially interior design
perhaps we're better without it
this crib is some Japanese architect i think
imo it's harder and more costly for most of /fa/'s or other boards' user bases to really get involved in. not much you can do with your shitty 600 square foot apartment, and the choice between a $300 chair and a pair of raf velcros is an easy one. these fantastical inspo pics are next to impossible to achieve so it's hard to talk about. then again poors will bicker over supercar specs to death so idk
Are you from a Scandinavian country? I've noticed the same similarities. I'm particularly interested in ancient Norwegian architecture. The woodwork and carpentry are astounding and the old sod roofed houses harmonize with the wild land around them. You can tell that the people are so tuned in to the landscape and the resources. Necessity turned into an art form.
This is a stabbur, a traditional farm storehouse with raised construction to keep out rats. The upstairs was often used as a guest bedroom or sleeping area in the summers.
oops, wrong photo, but that's another traditional farm building
shit that's nice. it's more knowledge that /fa/ lacks, you need people with some insight to have any worthwhile conversation.
some more japanese stuff
lol im norwegian
ive seen that shitt since i was 1 yr and it gets pretty quickly boring, the ideas behind it is genius though and the building is easy too keep warm among a shit ton of other things.
modern interpretations of "lafte tommer" are pretty dope though and quite often very functional
There's definitely a costly barrier to entry. I don't think that stops us from talking about the finer points of designing a chair say, or even what you can realistically do with a small space. My favourite bits and pieces are usually the more modest ones. I can see how not being able to implement most of this stuff could kill interest though.
I figured you might be Norwegian. I can understand how seeing that shit everywhere as part of your heritage makes it get old quickly. I really like that modern interpretation you posted. People are always jizzing over modern scandinavian design, but I studied anthropology and I'm more interested in the influences behind it and how design comes from the relationship of the people to the land.
wonder if the OP is still around. i have no idea if this thread is what OP was after.
silly filter aside, this room looks cozy and I have a book collecting problem
uuuuummm yeeees let the Scandinavian design flow through you. slowly taking over all design architecture and fashion
fuck that flamboyant southern European shitt
Scandinavian 4, 3 reitch
oh and i just saw human planet about these niggas building houses in the trees you should definitely watch that.
dat contrast and similarity's between old industry and modern concrete architecture
I'd be interested to hear more about that design relationship.
I'm sure many common local details come from either historical function or directly from the available materials in any given area.
i think you norselords take for granted what a truly remarkable land you live in. in fact i think the whole of europe suffers this problem. and i understand it completely; live your entire life around anything, and it just gets old. and not bring up privilege horseshit, but you should all be thankful to your gods and ancestors that you don't live in nigeria. scandinavia is objectively better even if it does get chilly and dark.
that said i'm glad you are not complacent and strive to be better. that is always a good quality in my opinion. i don't know why i posted all this
nonon dont take that shitt for granted, living in Denmark thought me that apparently most places are flat and without snow, and made me mis the fuck out of home
snow and mountains are seriosly the sexiest thing on earth also sets you in this kind of mood thats undescribable, makes you feel so small and alone and making nature might and i dunno
Those two are definitely at the core of design principles. As they say form follows function. The first Norwegian shelters were made completely of sod and offered innumerable health problems, but kept the occupants mostly warm and dry. The sod was everywhere, so it was natural to use it as a building material. When woodworking and carpentry skills grew, the great forests of Norway were used for housebuilding.
Farm buildings were arranged in squares around courtyards to provide safety from beasts and nature while promoting a close knit family relationship. So much of the Norwegian year was spent in either cold or darkness, which necessitated the design of energy efficient houses and cozy easily heatable spaces. I could go on, but I think what I've said is a good base and there are plenty of books written on the subject.
That's another fascinating challenge that's arising in these modern times. People are not taking the time to learn about and respect their own cultural heritage, so many important landmarks, crafts, languages, and ideas are being lost. It takes outsiders' interest in the unique facets of a culture to promote preservation. Tourism and the work of a few dedicated scholars are all that bridge modern society with cultural history.
I'm American but I have a strong interest in Scandinavian legends, architecture, and life probably owing to my Swedish ancestry.
"There are two kinds of finer feeling: the feeling of the sublime and the feeling of the beautiful. Kant gives examples of these pleasant feelings. Some of his examples of feelings of the beautiful are the sight of flower beds, grazing flocks, and daylight. Feelings of the sublime are the result of seeing mountain peaks, raging storms, and night.
In this section, Kant gives many particular examples of feelings of the beautiful and the sublime. Feelings of the beautiful "occasion a pleasant sensation but one that is joyous and smiling." On the other hand, feelings of the sublime "arouse enjoyment but with horror.""
"The sublime must always be large; the beautiful may be small. The sublime must be simple; the beautiful may be decorated and adorned. A very great height is sublime as well as a very great depth; but the latter is accompanied by the sense of terror, the former by admiration. Hence the one may be terrible sublime, the other noble."
Those are good passages. I agree with what he's getting at. Thanks for posting.
“You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.”
mirrors Buddhist principles of learning
First you see a mountain, then you see past the mountain, then you see the mountain again with a new clarity.
Daumal was heavily influenced by Buddhism, nice catch.
The book Handmade Houses is a classic exploration of diy housebuilding, mostly in '60's & '70's Big Sur, California. There's lots of quirky and cozy houses like pic related, which was just a temporary shelter that the owner built while constructing his permanent residence.
I'd highly recommend the book to anyone interested in craftsmanship and creative use of materials.
