A must-see event that marks the start of the Paris design season, the AD Intérieurs exhibition, under the helm of AD magazine, presents the work of talented designers embodying the latest trends in contemporary decoration. For this edition, the AD editorial team has selected 15 participants which represent the richness and variety of today’s decoration styles, including a number of exceptional architects and interior designers who work closely with The Invisible Collection, and have done so since its inception.
“Brut et précieux” — rough and precious — is the theme assigned to the designers who were given carte blanche to invent an imaginary functional space never seen before. The outcome, 15 unique rooms filled with great conversation pieces, is the undisputed exemple of the unbridled creativity of the contemporary generation of interior designers who skilfully mix almost classical rigour with otherwordly talented ideas. Amazing, dreamlike, exquisite spaces : an absolute must see!
Here is a preview of the beautiful rooms created by The Invisible Collection’s beloved designers :
Episode I : A playerboy’s room by Oitoemponto
For the 4th consecutive year Oitoemponto participates to AD Intérieurs. For this edition on the theme of “ Rough and precious ”, Jacques Bec and Artur Miranda present the room of a playboy. Like a folding screen, the fords of a wallpaper close the space, ornamented with a lustful nocturnal forrest. Realized by Oitoemponto in collaboration with de Gournay this motive breathes the intimacy and invites to daydreaming, it spreads up to the hand-painted and embroidered silk curtains. Everything is only games of contrasts and concordances between this abundant exotic ornament and classic architecture of the room, between doors lacquered in black from the 40’s – Ruhlmann door writs – and arcs of windows from the 17th century on the opposite wall. The whole set, Pierre Frey fabrics to the contemporary furniture designed by Oitoemponto and composed among others iconic furtniture such as a 18th century dresser, a sofa from the 60’s by Adrian Pearsall, chairs by Aldo Tura, Paolo Buffa’s armchairs and Mark Brazier-Jones celebrates « La haute décoration ». The photographic presence of Vanessa Beecroft and Umberto Mariani’s lead canvas bring a contemporary and brutalist reading to this luxurious space.
The episode II is coming soon…stay tuned!
