Thomas recently had the chance to try out IrisVR's visualization tool with one of our interior designs. The company offers a standalone app that converts cad drawings from Revit or SketchUp into virtual reality scenes. These scenes can then be watched using an Oculus Rift or GearVR headset. It's a truly immersive experience! Using virtuality reality really helps the viewer better understand the scale of furniture as well as layout decisions. We hope to incorporate virtual reality in our design and review process very soon, but in the meantime we keep improving our 3D rendering workflow.
After reading David Bench's article in Uncube magazine, we were inspired to visit Grace Farms in New Canaan, Connecticut. Designed by SANAA architects, the public complex is a remarkable development which harmoniously integrates into the pastoral landscape. Here are some photos we took after their October 9th opening.
We had the pleasure of visiting Paris to document our client Calico Wallpaper's work for the launch of "Mood" by Christofle, as well as the "Precious" exhibit at Maison et Objet. While there, we traversed the design show for hours on end. We were struck by the sheer volume of interesting European and Asian designers we'd never encountered before Stateside, and enjoyed seeing several brands in person for the very first time. Some of our highlights are below!
We recently wrote a Berlin city guide for The Style Line. Thomas shot the photos and Keren wrote about some of her favorite sites and shops. Topping the list are Kreuzberg's Modulor for every art supply imaginable, the chic used clothing shop The Good Shop, lovely interiors at Salumeria Lamuri, Neukölln's delicious coffee shop Roamers, incredibly relaxing spa Das Stue in Charlottenburg, and Mitte's German-focused independent fashion boutique Konk.
