Uhhh, why was I not born European. I would be such a better designer AND have so many more cool opportunties to design.

OK, so I know this is cool design and all and you like it- but I hate it, like really hate it.

It looks so cold and unpersonal to me. Like a big, cold room of metal.

I dont know you are the educated designer and I'm just the blogger, so what do I know? haha

Ha, ha, you crack me up.

Without looking, here is what I like:

1. The lighting slots that line up and reflect the polished tile floor and lead your eye to the reception desk...which has the company logo...which lets you know in the beginning what the space is all about.

2. Those stairs are bad A (structurally)..they "float" but they are solid and appear heavy, heavy but floating = cool

3. I love the monochromatic palette. In the states, most offices want a general paint color and 3 accents. They'll use the accents on a wall here or there to make it seem like they are "hip and with it"...but this tone on tone cool. Think about fashion, how cool is shiny gold right now? Cool.

4. The client is Escada and the space could totally house a fashion show, it doesn't say it does, but looks like it could. That is why I think they kept it "unpersonal".Again, the lighting makes it feel like a runway.

And that's what I have to do all day to defend my own ideas:) Linds B I alway enjoy your input. Please delete all the crap at the bottom! And thanks for keeping it clean:)

Usually, we do "something should be"design, hardly we do "something would be"design, for this case is "something could be" design...

I love it at first sight, then have hesitation of REAL experience wthin this space, It does look like D&G show room, can't say is a office.But, why not try?

I agree with you that designers can experiment more in Europe with design. I really like all the gold in the space too.

I REALLY want to be European too. For the record!

See you tonight!
