STYLISH CLUB NEW COLLECTION VIRTUAL EXHIBITION
With those who enhance treasures inside and through forums, Stylish Club collections aim to offer a higher level of grandeur and value to their projects. As collections, they are totally dedicated to inspirational design products.
Below, we present some of the most important “objects” of inspiration that elevated the minds of our designers. Also be inspired by all the images and information that are shared here.
The São Paulo Art Museum (MASP), opened on November 7, 1968, is a building designed by Italian-Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi (1914-1992). Famous for the span of more than 70 meters that extends through the pillars, it is one of the main inspirations of the HER collection, giving rise to the first piece of the collection, the bedside table. This reflects the building’s span in its metal base, as well as the vertical rhythms of the glass facades represented by the recessed friezes in the structure of the drawer module.
The Maison de Verre (French House of Glass) was built from 1928 to 1932 in Paris, France. Developed in partnership by the architect Bernard Bijvoet, the furniture and interior designer Pierre Chareau, and the craftsman metalworker Louis Dalbet.
Built-in the modern style of architecture, the design of the house emphasized three main characteristics: honesty of materials, variable transparency of shapes and juxtaposition of industrial materials and elements with a more traditional style of decoration. The main materials used were steel, glass, and glass blocks. All these details were the inspiration for some of the pieces in the HIS collection, such as the sideboard.
The Itamaraty Palace, also known as Palácio dos Arcos (Palace of Arches in Portuguese), was inaugurated on April 20, 1970, and is still the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Brazil, located in Brasilia, capital of Brazil. It is considered a masterpiece by architect Oscar Niemeyer and structural engineer Joaquim Cardozo. Palácio dos Arcos, was the first name given to the building, due to the arches of the facade. Source of inspiration in the development of the dressing table of the HER collection. However, the tradition of the name “Itamaraty”, originating from the name of the former ministry headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, was stronger and the palace continued to be called Itamaraty Palace. Among the highlights of the palace are the exceptional use of exposed concrete in narrow bands by Niemeyer’s architecture, the impressive free span, calculated by Cardozo, and the helical staircase in the lobby, developed by Cardozo with the architect Milton Ramos.
The AEG turbine plant was built around 1909, at Huttenstraße 12-16, in the Moabit district of Berlin. It is the best-known work of the architect Peter Behrens. It is an influential and well-known example of industrial architecture. Its revolutionary design features glass and steel walls 100m long and 15m high on both sides. It was a bold and pioneering move in the world that would have a lasting impact on architecture as a whole.
This magnificent work by Peter Behrens was the inspirational source in the development of the HER desk.
Its front facade, giving the idea of a kind of solid and robust body was the main point that gave rise to the entire desk structure.
The Chrysler Building is a skyscraper built in New York, United States,
and currently stands as the third tallest building in the city, the
seventh-tallest in the country, and the 60th largest in the world, at
319 m (1,047 ft) ).
Inaugurated in 1930, the building designed by William Van Alen to host the American automobile company Chrysler, when the plan for the construction of the building was announced on September 19, 1928, there was a strong competition between city architects to build “the tallest skyscraper in the world “(to date), as the project’s creators called it. Despite the disputed vacancy of chief architect and the desire to build a record-breaking building, the pace of construction was natural.
Van Alen’s original project was called “decorative jewel with a glass crown”. Van Alen also included in his proposal strong details such as the high, rhythmic lines and windows at the top of the building, which made the building look like a floating lantern in downtown New York. All these ideas were the inspiration of the Stylish Club design team in the development of the Her bookcase.
The unique “ZIG-ZAG” armchair, was created by Lina Bo Bardi in partnership with Giancarlo Palanti, in 1949 for the Teatro Cultura
Artística of São Paulo (Brazil) and manufactured by Studio d’arte
Palma with the structure in cabreuva wood and upholstered in
leather. This armchair was the object of inspiration for the creation
of the dining chair of the HER collection.
