This Page On Instagram Collects Interior Design Objects Used In Star Trek, Here Are 30 Of The Best Finds Interview With Author

What if we told you that the set designers for Star Trek didn’t make every single thing that ever appeared on the show? Instead, the staff worked very carefully on sourcing and selecting everyday objects that would fit the overall theme of the show. Everything from cutlery to glasses and even chairs in the show were everyday items accessible to most of us (at some point). For example, Captain Janeway’s office chair is a Signét 8400 chair from HÅG, which is a Norwegian design company, not to mention there were also items that were bought at IKEA.

The guys at Paris-based architecture firm Ateliers Jean Nouvel have teamed up with the developer Alexandre Allard to come up with this amazing plant-covered luxury hotel design that is set to revive the historic district in São Paulo, Brazil.

A 550,000 square-metre complex of historic buildings is being regenerated in the city’s centre and includes the former Filomena Matarazzo maternity hospital: “The hospital in the middle of the grounds is a sort of mini-town, very well organised around patios, and surrounding this little gem is a chaotic metropolis,” said Nouvel.

Designers Created Garden Offices Inspired By Popular TV Series And Movies

Most of us have been working from home during this pandemic. That means we’ve had a corner in our home dedicated to our office. Some just open up a laptop in bed, some have a whole professional workstation, some just repurpose their gaming computer. Even so, most probably tried to make it nice and cozy, so that work hours would go smoother.

The designers from HouseholdQuotes decided to inspire some people and maybe even give some ideas on how you could decorate your office based on your favorite TV show or movie. They created the concept and 3D work, making 6 garden rooms that would be the offices of famous characters like Dumbledore or Michael Scott.

These Designers Show How Interior Design Changed Over Time And How It Might Evolve In The Future Interview With Artist

Interior design is a big part of our lives. Our homes show a lot of things about our personalities and who we are as a person. However, the way we choose to decorate, place, and portray our homes doesn’t only depend on us, but also on the fashion, technology, and trends of the decade we’re living in.

American Home Shield decided to look back and create a project where they show how much interior design has changed. As examples, they use the typical home from the 1800s, 2000s, and guess what homes will look like in the 2100s. These concepts show that every decade had a unique pallet, furniture aesthetic, and very different technologies.

House Listing Of “The Worst House On The Street” Goes Viral For Its Hilarious Commentary

Correct me if I’m wrong, but you probably wouldn’t buy a property that reads “The roof leaks, the floor creaks, and there’s a terrible draft.” But “literally the worst house on the street” surely would catch your attention. And then you’d start scrolling, only to see… it’s kinda not so bad!

So when the realtor Philippa Main from Tampa Bay, Florida penned this 826sqft listing description in Zephyrhills, FL, it was a question of time until it would go viral. Its brutal honesty, zero wish-wash, and excellent sense of humor made it into somewhat of a best home listing description for the very worst house.

Awesome Steampunk Interior Design At Truth Cafe In South Africa

These copper pipes, gears and steel railings are not from the interior of an ironclad battleship or WWI factory – they‘re part of the brilliant interior steampunk design of Truth Coffee‘s cafe in Cape Town.

The idea works in part because the coffee equipment used by Truth Coffee, with its various pipes and levers, already lends itself to a steampunk aesthetic. The cafe features authentic elements and accents like old bookcases, candlestick telephones, vintage typewriters, gas-masks and other gizmos and gadgets. Even the staff pictured wear popular steampunk elements like leather aprons, top-hats and goggles.

The interior design was dreamed up together with interior designer Haldane Martin, who was approached by Truth Coffee to design a cafe in keeping with their re-branding efforts. With cafes that look this much fun, I‘d say they‘re doing a good job!

Is Contemporary Industrial Architecture Taking Over In Housing?

What Is Industrial Housing?

For those of you who are not quite sure what it means when someone uses the term “industrial architecture,” the term refers to a style of architecture that features, minimal surface decoration, industrial materials, clean lines, flat roofs, jutting edges, and polished surfaces. The style has increased in popularity over the last several decades. Today, the minimal style is embraced by those who choose to live life in busy industrial centers and away from suburban communities. For many, the style’s tendency to use greener materials and modern designs are its many attractors. Because of these reasons and many more, Industrial Architecture is “in” and in a big way.

Industrial Design Is Good For Communities

With the decline in manufacturing, cities and urban areas are ripe with opportunities for new development. Using existing industrial infrastructures, many imaginative architects have been able to transform and preserve the existing industrials spaces. Once an area’s industrial buildings and spaces of old have been transformed into new housing, businesses, and other rich spaces, the community is given a new life. What was once a blighted area with abandoned manufacturing spaces can now be turned into sites that benefit and regenerate the community. This urban revitalization is becoming more and more common in cities everywhere.

Industrials spaces can easily be converted into cost-effective residential housing. Leaving exposed I-beams, ventilation, pipes, bricks, and concrete is less costly than covering the features with drywall. The utilitarian and minimal look is attractive in its own way and is especially popular with a younger generation.

Features And Innovation In Industrial Design

Open Spaces – Industrial architecture and design are increasing in popularity in private residential homes. Industrial spaces are sought after for their open interiors, high ceilings, and access to natural light. Skylights and large windows provide the interiors with abundant light as the high ceilings and open rooms further push the style’s expansive nature. Often, industrial interiors have fewer walls. The large, open rooms allow inhabitants to more flexibly, creatively, and effectively use the space.

Dividers – Large industrial spaces are able to be easily portioned into smaller areas with the use of dividers. The simple, cost-effective solution reduces the expense of a costly remodel and allows a large space to accommodate multiple functions. The use of dividers or movable walls allows the home to organically accommodate the growing and changing needs of the residents who live within its walls.

Garage Doors – Large industrial doors and garage doors can be easily integrated features within an industrial design. Large automatic doors open up the interior of a home and allow it to extend into an outer space. Indoor/ outdoor living areas are popular features of homes with industrial, minimal, and modern designs.

Green Housing – One industrial architectures most apparent benefits is its reduction in waste and easy conversion to green housing. Many of the industrial spaces used for the basis of these homes are located in urban centers and offer great walk-ability, public transportation, or bike access. Additionally, many of the building materials used in the development are recycled or up-cycled from the previous space, making this one of the greenest architectural styles.

Not Just For the City Any More

Industrial architecture is one of the most popular residential styles in the cities throughout the world. However, the style has become so popular that it is infiltrating other interior design as well as residential suburban architecture.

If you’re interested in living in space with a distinctive industrial style, but do not like city life, then you still may be able to find your perfect industrial style loft in a less urban space. Many buildings and homes in smaller towns and suburbs boast industrial style spaces. These spaces are often old factories and manufacturing plants. However, the historic charm can add to the beauty of the home’s interior. However, industrial style spaces in smaller cities, towns, and suburbs do need to take care that their space remains anchored in the character of the region where it is located.
