BECKERIA

Europaallee, Zürich

 

BECKERIA – the name symbolizes the concept: BECK – Swiss German for bakers – stands for good homemade bread, cakes and pastries. The Italian word GallERIA stands for generous versatility under one roof.

To the left of the sales counter the light cereal area offers a healthy breakfast, furnished with high tables and chairs made of natural oak. On the right, dark woods, upholstered seating benches and chairs highlight the coffeehouse and lounge area with it’s own Barista Bar.

The black marble Grill Bar, with an attached bar counter made of anthracite-coloured concrete, forms the gastronomic bridge from lunch to dinner. The opposite high table with leather-covered bar stools is perfect for a quick lunch. A long dining table of light oak for 8 persons guarantees a convivial dinner in a warm and cosy atmosphere.

An end-to-end solid wood herringbone parquet floor made of oiled light oak creatively pulls the Interior-Areas together.

The continuous black-painted, industrial-looking ceiling contrasts with the fine materials and thus creates an interesting tension. Expanded metal room dividers and suspensions act as structuring elements above the working areas and create transparent boundaries for the individual interior areas. All the essential furniture, the tables, shelve elements, the room dividers and the lounge sofa are designs by DYER-SMITH FREY.

VIVETTA Spring/Summer 2018

01 Kopie

 

Between history and legend, Andrey Remnev has inspired the 2018 Vivetta Spring-Summer collection.

Vivetta Ponti transfers his art onto the catwalk: his ancient, melancholic strokes, yet graphical and modern, his colours and the delicate and dream-like women, the main characters of his paintings.

 

02 Kopie

 

These noble, hypnotic ladies, suspended in a surreal atmosphere, emphasise his passion for detail and, more specifically, for embroidery. Vivetta’s dresses, just like canvases, portray a marvellous, enchanted universe, with a wealth of magical elements. A desecrating tribute to both the world of contemporary art and the Russian artist.

 

07 Kopie

 

A collage of refined hand-made decorations. Sophisticated sequin macramé and evanescent profiles. Dazzling Swarovski and pearl appliques. Precious brocades as well as bright, multi-coloured Haute Couture duchesses.

Remnev’s favourite motifs are directly transferred onto the dresses. Irises bloom on the fabrics, crossed by the featherweight flights of dragonflies, butterflies and swallows. In addition to these, there are also elements taken from the underwater and woodland world. In the eternal surreal interplay of transformism, nature overcomes the real dimension: fantastic animals such as fish and winged creatures blossom in splendid flowers.

 

09 Kopie

 

Skirts that are as light as clouds and volumes emphasised by puffy crinolines. Cascades of raw edged tulle. Transparencies and micromesh lace. The crystal-studded organza is gradually blurred with delicate, lightweight feathers. The lightness of these fabrics is contrasted with those of a sturdier nature. The bustier dress is rather striking with its exaggerated volumes in denim which is treated, woven and dyed by hand.

 

12 Kopie

 

The common thread linking these two inspirational worlds, which are only apparently poles apart, is actually jeans, that co-exist in this collection. Revisited, faded and embroidered denim with bands of coloured feathers is used also for the footwear: for a true total look. There is a clear reference to a typically-90s POP underground style in terms of fit, volumes and prints. Oversized garments and hyper-feminine outfits. Organza, fil coupé brocade and jacquard cotton that recall romantic tapestries.

 

15 Kopie

 

The little tassels that enrich them have also been taken from the world of furnishing and design.
Maxi T-shirts are worn over 1960-style mini-dresses adorned with minute, sparkling sequins. Flaming, acid-coloured embroideries with sporty elements also for dresses in silk satin. The emerald green dress, with a deep side split, matching feather train and boa is a real key piece.

 

21 Kopie

 

The cut and paste effect is ensured by the styling: a top recalling a baseball T-shirt, with contrasting lace on its sleeves and a red carpet-worthy skirt. Also the black dress, with its decorated white satin bodice, that in terms of cut and silhouette perfectly complies with the design codes of this mood, has been created by wearing a short T-shirt over a tulle skirt. The elements of decor which Remnev was so fond of, can be seen once again in the prints, on shirts and short dresses, that have been re-elaborated according to a decidedly more contemporary taste.

 

22 Kopie

 

The range of colours is amazing. The light, dusty hues of the purest dawns from soft blue to baby pink, clash with the unique fluo colours and plenty of gold, a clear reference to the precious pigments blended by hand and used by the artist himself, as in the past.
Accessories: high cuissard boots and bow mules, either glittered or in bright pastel colours. Delicate “profiled” ballerina shoes in clashing hues.

The Devonshire Club London Designed By March & White

MW

 

A private members club has a peculiarly complex purpose. Add to this, 70 hotel suites above for the use of members and the logistics, functionality and performance require scientific analysis. Aesthetically, each room, each space of the club, needed to have a sense of the unique whilst being an episode in a larger, entire, piece.

 

M&W

 

To commit to creating a large, significant and very valuable piece of art is to prepare to meet some very formidable challenges. Devonshire Club was no exception to the theory. At March & White, they always work with the best craftsmen using the very finest authentic materials to ensure everything is completed to the highest quality standard. Furnitureworks are a Sussex based craft furniture makers with a reputation for producing the very highest quality upholstery. Working closely with them. 

March & White were able to interpret the organic curves and forms of mid-century style into our own, absolutely contemporary furniture.

M&Wdetails

 

The philosophy for Devonshire Club was to create an elegant and iconic destination for London’s city elite; a glamourous and subtly feminine space which confidently spoke of creativity, vibrancy and sophistication. Distilling inspiration from both mid-century modern design and couture, March & White created a series of distinctive spaces. These, each very individual, are, separate but still subtly connected in series, resulting in an intriguing journey from the moment of entering the club.

The mood is one of glamour and elegance with a vibrant, and very contemporary, undercurrent. Their take on the primary colour palette is visible through our selection of fabrics and finishes, creating a unique version of the Mondrian palette that boasts a timeless feel throughout the entire club.

During manufacture, a significant value is placed on reinterpreting classic craftsmanship and combining this with design that is contemporary and simultaneously elegant. Another main aspect is to avoid mass production and rather to produce a bespoke rug that may be inherited by future generations of families. Thus, creating a modern classic for the 21st century.

Equestrian Gift

Riedel Horse Decanter

Riedel

 

Riedel Crystal, the 261 year-old global leader in varietal-specific glassware (where form follows function as its wineglass shapes are created to enhance the experience and taste of a specific grape variety), also create stunning mouth-blown decanters. The sophisticated equine-inspired Riedel Horse Decanter stands at an impressive 23-5/8 inches tall with an equine profile decorating its interior – a true showstopper.Horse Decanter Kopie

Designed by 11th-generation Riedel Crystal CEO Maximilian J. Riedel, the Horse decanter was inspired not only by the Chinese Zodiacback in 2014, but also by the famous Royal Lipizzans, the rare, aristocratic breed, whose line, like the Riedel line, resided in Austria.

More than an object of beauty, the decanter is also a powerful tool, much like the energy and performance embodied by the Lipizzan breed. First bred by the Hapsburgs in the 16th century, the Lipizzan represent the prime equestrian specimen of the Baroque era and today remain symbols of pomp and circumstance throughout Europe. The decanter’s colour, defined by a single stripe of black crystal that runs the decanter’s length and outlines its interior equine profile, also takes its inspiration from the Lipizzan breed who are born black and turn white as they grow into adults.

Riedel_1

 

I have long been fascinated by horses, both as animals of strength and performance as well as of elegance, in addition to the role they have played for generations in cultures throughout the world,” comments Maximilian. “With the Riedel Horse decanter, I strove to create a functional and powerful wine tool that simultaneously reflects the innate beauty, sophistication, and authority of a horse.

The decanter’s concave profile also aids in wine’s decanting process. After pouring wine into the decanter, shaking the vessel until a thin layer of bubbles forms helps to oxygenate the wine, dramatically improving its aeration and the flavour profile of the given grape varietal. As it opens the wine by “charging” it, the Riedel Horse performs a traditionally time-consuming task at high speed, while remaining regal and refined like the Austrian Lipizzans.
