THE GLOBAL INTERIOR ISSUE - APRIL 2021
Welcome to our annual issue of Global Interiors.
Good design can inspire and uplift our lives. We have understood this especially in the last year, as circumstances have forced us to stay at home. A year after the pandemic shocked the world, this issue of Global Interiors greets the design pieces that have accompanied our days and the bright talents behind them.
This edition presents projects from all six continents. Our interior manager Olly Mason has partnered with Berlin-based design studio Form & Rausch to create a real feast for our eyes, placing striking pieces of furniture against evasive backgrounds that are modern yet rooted in geography.
We also bring you a trio of mid-century California homes that have been given a new lease of life. In Malibu, Kelly Wearstler transformed a long-neglected beach house into an incredible surf hut. In Los Angeles, just below the Hollywood sign, Studio Shamshiri tells us about the former home of Robert Kennard (one of the leading black architects of his generation). Nearby, we revisit John Lautner's Garcia House, an icon of American architectural history. Owners John McIlwee and Bill Damaschke, architects Marmol Radziner, interior designer Darren Brown and environmental designer John Sharp offer us a masterclass on sensitive reinvention, presented on over 12 pages and also featured on the cover.
Let's look back at the career of the Italian postmodern master Paolo Portoghesi, creator of Baroque-inspired buildings and proponent of the first Venice Architecture Biennale.
And much more.
