Description by Studio Guilherme Torres

Context:

Unique concept, transatlantic inspiration. The maxim “much less is extra”, coined by the German architect Mies van der Rohe, one of many biggest idols of Torres, paradoxically, is the antithesis of what preached the legendary American decorator Dorothy Draper. For her, extra was higher. With flooring on black and white, fancy boiseries and outsized handles, her ambiance was eccentric, exuberant and glamorous. The story of this pioneering décor merges to the personal historical past of inside design as knowledgeable exercise. Her workplace, the place she labored tirelessly from 1920 to 1960, produced a lot of iconic tasks, together with grand inns. Dorothy additionally left her mark in Brazil, with the interiors’ signature of “Palácio Quitandinha”, a treasure hidden on the mountainous area of Rio de Janeiro.

Concerning the challenge:

On the 2015 version of Casa Cor São Paulo, a short lived ornament exhibition which takes place from Might twenty sixth to July twelfth, the architect Guilherme Torres in a three way partnership with the mega company Todeschini, a number one furnishings firm, creates a cosmopolitan, playful and modern imaginative and prescient on four hundred sq. meters that revisits the golden days of the Jockey Membership constructing, host of the exhibition and stage of memorable events of São Paulo excessive society on its golden years.

In occasions of austerity and restraint, Guilherme prefers to take the other way and revisit the posh of a time with out dated stigmas, creating his personal interpretation of the imaginative and prescient that he shares with the legacy of Dorothy – touches of fantasy and drama, contrasts of black & white and a few boldness within the proportions. “I don’t like being caught to my very own formulation. I consider exhibits and exhibitions are a chance for escapism, match for creativity, good without spending a dime creativeness”, in response to him.
