Spaces: Ines Colmorgen, André Wyst, + a Giant Eames Hang-It-All: Berlin

. Wednesday, June 30, 2010

The home of art director André Wyst, and children's shop owner Ines Colmorgen. I had actually overlooked the giant Eames Hang-It-All in the first photo as my brain interpreted the size relation as being a result of perspective! A great piece, perfectly coordinating with the Eames fiberglass chairs, and transforming the Eames' highly functional design into a purely sculptural objet d'art. The rest of their home is furnished in the same whimsical and colorful manner, with furnishings by Jean Prouvé, Ilmari Tapiovaara, and Poul Henningsen.

See the rest of the shoot at freundevonfreunden.
