Three things that caught my attention this week and are worth taking a second look at... 

Today we will be looking at three different homes, all in their own right simply amazing. Either because of the design elements used by the designer or the simplicity of the designs themselves they are todays things that are worth taking a second look at... 

Reductive Simplicity’ Transforms a Brooklyn Home!!!!!
20140911-LOCATION-slide-TFHQ-jumbo

Architect Chris Cooper and interior designer Jennifer Hanlin had the built-in advantage of both vision and good taste on their side when they renovated the two floors of their Brooklyn duplex. Who else but spatial esthetes could have envisioned a dark, utilitarian crawl space as a mezzanine-in-the-making, ready to house a library and TV room? Cooper and Hanlin did, and thanks to that bit of visionary thinking, added a whopping (by New York City standards) 325 square feet to an already sizable (by New York City standards) family home.
A gut renovation that included judiciously adding and subtracting volume (to create both perceived and actual space) has given the couple and their two young children a thoughtfully edited family home conducive to both communal living and privacy, replete with both light and textural richness. Cooper’s fondness for “reductive simplicity” and Hanlin’s desire for a “neutral, contemplative and calm” home made for an esthetic meeting of the minds, tastefully expressed in the curated selection of Modernist and contemporary furnishings that enhance the home’s new parameters. If only it were as reductively simple as this for the rest of us.

Taking furniture to artful heights, quite literally, is Italian brand Casamania, which, in collaboration with Swedish design studio Claesson Koivisto Rune, has released a collection of cabinets that derive inspiration from the great abstract painter Ellsworth Kelly. Casamania’s Legato cabinets (Legato, in Italian, translates as ‘tied together’) are clean rectilinear pieces, rendered striking for their brightly colored front doors of varying sizes, crafted from MDF, and given the rounded corners common in the flat shapes that Kelly made famous. This isn’t the first nod to Kelly by Claesson Koivisto Rune. The studio’s 2013 Kelly seating collection for another Italian furnishings brand, Tacchini, appropriated the same expanses of segmented monochromes seen on the Legato cabinets. Nothing wrong with melding art with craft, we say.
