For the 56th edition of Casa Decor in Madrid, Meritxell Ribé and Josep Puigdomènech present the project ‘Modern Times’. The proposal is conceived as a luxury workspace within a home due to the adaptation to teleworking and the change that many homes are undergoing as a result of this reality.
The aim was to create a relaxed area away from all external noise, a harmonious place that transmits peace and serenity and is a very functional space. Together with GIRA, we have had the opportunity to incorporate the latest technologies: creating a fully domotic environment and allowing the transformation of the space according to the use it is being given and the mood of the person who enjoys it.
The use of natural materials was chosen, especially wood, and the aim was to create organic shapes that convey the idea of being enveloped and enclosed within the space. The play of hollow and full spaces has allowed us to include functional cupboards behind this wooden “skin”. Behind the custom-designed table, a panel has been created that conceals some shelves and brings the surprise factor to the stage. The panels have been designed as pieces of art, as this is a key point in the development of the Studio’s projects.
The decorative panels with rounded shapes mimic the shapes of the ceiling on a reduced scale and are strategically illuminated. This visual effect adds a decorative and functional touch to the space. For the floor, a wool carpet has been chosen, laid on a foam that rises up to the plinth and covers it.
