As a company focused on homes and interior design, it never hurts to look beyond our industry for inspirational cues.
Recently, we shared some very exciting architectural news for the city of Vancouver on Facebook:
Why does this excite us?
We’re excited because this beautiful acclaimed piece by renowned architect Bjarke Ingels is a very literal representation of why we love to do what we do. We concoct ideas that challenge our creative spirit to [hopefully] inspire our own audience.
In the newly released Netflix Original titled “Abstract: The Art of Design”, Episode 4 explores how Bjarke Ingels unites function, fantasy and sustainability to create amazing design. This 44-minute episode highlights the ideation and construction of his firm’s Serpentine Pavilion masterpiece entitled the “Unzipped Wall”, which will eventually be transplanted into the heart of Vancouver.
Along the way, Ingels shares how he has grown professionally and the lessons he’s learned along the way. For us, a key takeaway was his belief of ‘yes is more’. This, contrary to the more well-known ‘less is more’, speaks to his inclusive approach and his quest to find creative solutions that accommodate everyone. Perhaps this is why his work is often admired for the distinct kinship of design and sustainability.
For more inspiration, check out the other episodes in the Netflix Original Series “Abstract” and be on the lookout for the eventual arrival of Ingels’ masterpiece at the base of Shaw Tower in Vancouver.
