Lovely rooms for lovely siblings

Pular para português

Today is Children’s Day in Brazil. It is celebrated on October 12, by kids receiving gifts from their family. This gave a strong commercial twist to the celebration, but at the end of day, we should really honor children around the world and think about what we can do to help to promote the welfare of every child. Without further ado, here is the selection of rooms for siblings I chose for you, really inspired by my sweet nieces and nephew. Those are rooms I’m sure they would like to share!
XOXO

Hoje é dia das crianças no Brasil. A entrega de presente às crianças criou um forte cunho comercial a celebração, mas no fim do dia, devemos realmente usar esse feriado (também importante dia para os católicos – Nossa Senhora da Aparecida) para honrar nossas crianças ao redor do mundo e pensar como podemos contribuir para a promoção do bem estar de cada uma delas. Sem mais delongas, aqui está a seleção inspirada em crianças, em homenagem a meus amados sobrinhos. Esses são quartinhos que eles adorariam dividir! 😘

Great Designers Series: Eero Saarinen

Pular para português

It is with great pleasure that I launch this Great Designers Series‘ post with Eero Saarinen, one the most influential architects of the XX century, and also of my favorite furniture designers.

Eero Saarinen was born in 1910, in Finland, son of the renowned Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen. Following his father’s path, Eero graduated in architecture 1934 at Yale University. In the next years, Saarinen completed many modernist architecture projects, like (i) the Gateway Arc, in St. Louis, (ii) the Miller House, in Columbus, Indiana, (iii) a neo-futuristic terminal in JFK Airport, in New York City.

Besides all the international acclaim in the buildings, Eero has immortalized himself in our homes with the amazing furniture line he designed for Knoll in the 1940’s and 1950’s, including the Pedestal Line (“Tulipe”), the Grasshopper and the Womb chairs.

Further the clean organic aesthetics, the one leg table and chair are made to last forever. The chair cushions can be easily removed to be cleaned or changed; I guess that’s the most amazing thing about design: being timeless.

XOXO,

É com grande prazer que lanço essa Série Grandes Designers com Eero Saarinen, um dos arquitetos mais influentes do século XX, além de um designers de móveis que mais admiro.

Eero Saarinen nasceu em 1910, na Finlândia, filho do renomado arquiteto Eliel Saarinen.  Seguindo os passos do pai, Eero greaduou-se arquiteto em 1934 na Universidade de Yale. Nos próximos anos, Saarinen concluiu muitos projetos modernistas de arquitetura, incluindo (i) o Gateway Arc, em St. Louis, EUA, (ii) a casa Miller, em Columbus, EUA (iii) e o terminal neo-futurista do aeroporto JFK na cidade de Nova Iorque, EUA.

Além dos aclamados projetos de edificações, Eero se imortalizou nos interiores de nossas casas com a linda linha de móveis projetada para a Knoll, incluindo a Linha Pedestal (“Tulipe”), e as cadeiras  Grasshopper e Womb.

Acima da estética orgânica e clean, as mesas e cadeiras são feitas para durar pela eternidade. Os assentos das cadeiras tulipe são facilmente removíveis para limpeza ou troca. E é isso o que mais admiro no design: atemporalidade.

Beijos.

Saarinen
