DETAIL Interiors 2/2020

Spaces can’t speak. Nevertheless, they can tell ­stories. Bordering the small town of Le Brassus in the Swiss Jura mountains, a sensational museum opened this year. It turns the history of the two watchmaker families Audemars and Piguet into a sensory experience. For the interiors of the spiral building volume created by BIG, Atelier Brückner designed a narrative scenography that celebrates the precision of the craft of watch­making in systematically ordered narrative sections.
However, the quest for a thrilling dramaturgy isn’t determined exclusively by time’s linear progression, and the dramatisation of spaces offers manifold opportunities. The projects and ­topics presented in this issue of Detail Interiors demonstrate this circumstance. For a roof extension in Munich’s Maxvorstadt quarter, Pool Leber Architekten developed tailor-made built-in furniture that offers a high degree of flexibility in a freely ­flowing spatial continuum. The curved shapes that David Adjaye composed for the flagship store of The Webster comprise a perfectly ­balanced sculpture made of pink-tinted concrete with a timeless and mysterious impression. Multi-dimensional spatial concepts can benefit the work atmosphere, even during the coronavirus pandemic. The interior designers Karim El-Ishmawi and Chris Middleton of Kinzo explain why in our in-depth interview.
