The new interior design created for the Mirror Beauty House by Zviad Surguladze is full of unpredictable details. The space is the mix of classic, contemporary and surrealistic details at the same time. IDAAF has received some very interesting answers to the questions from the author:
– How much influence did the name of the place have onto the dominating position of two mirrors in the interior, however it can also be assumed that on opposite – the name’s been selected based on the concept?
First the concept and interior in general has been developed, thus the name of the object has been chosen.
– Except of clearly strong position of the mirror material in the interior there are the distinct spots of color, especially the green surface of the wall, which is divided by a sharp horizontal line from white part, which is intensified by the cut of the selected drawings. What was the reason for such solution for vertical surfaces?
The interior bears the experimental nature, I’ve tried to present it as a classic piece with surreal elements, which led to the cutting of panels and doors right on horizon, and I’ve decided to emphasize all this by cutting the pictures together with their frames. On the other hand, the mirrors are thematic for the interior and the fact that they reflect each other countless times makes the space even more surreal.
– The combination of materials, especially in case of flooring, is a rather non-traditional and at the same time it seems that the solution is functionally justified corresponding the zones of area. What could you tell us about section and mixing of them, both from visual and functional point of view?
From the visual point of view the idea of concept was to divide the interior into two parts by horizon, the lower part would be covered by the classic panels together with the tiling visually similar to parquet, which would also have a classic arrangement and Spanish patterned ceramic tiles, which goes along the whole perimeter. The upper horizon would be minimalistic, the surfaces painted white would be covered by the schematic web of lighting, which would make the interior modern.
