The loft spirit

Raw materials and vegetation shape our new interior environment

Through the eyes of Marisol M., graphic designer

This is an era that connects with its past and future. Interiors take in traces of a bygone industrial world and the authentic footprint of vegetation. Our modern, urban world needs beacons and tranquillity. Lofts decked out with hanging gardens and plant walls illustrate this dual quest.

AESTHETIC

Interiors take on the look of old workshops in brick, glass, metal and wood. The green touches of tamed vegetation offset the coldness of a place that is transfixed in the past.

ALTERNATIVE

We want to breathe. Enough of this prevailing gloom… Time to bring some chlorophyll into almost-alternative living spaces.

SLOW-LIVING

A symbol of life and harmony, green protects us from a frenzied world. It offers us the key to “slow living”.

METAL

Metal and iron impose their raw hues.

GREENERY

Greenery, elected colour of 2017, glows. Its a dapper green that gently livens up the loft style.

FIFTY SHADES...

From dark to bright, green comes in endless shades: khaki, emerald, mint or mineral, lemongrass… It brings variety into the different rooms and gladly teams up with a milky tone or slate grey.

FACTORY

The Factory style consists of furniture and accessories made of industrial materials like waxed concrete, stone, copper or black steel. Materials that are time-resistant and reassuring.

OXYGENATION

Our carpets and upholstery fabrics are in natural materials, our décor breathes, our tables go for fresh air.

BRICK

A glass roof, a touch of raw wood and a hanging garden, this is what the Loft spirit is about.
