news from neue räume - August 2022


Berlin-based Studio Baumhauer renovated a traditional farmhouse in the Swiss village of Florins, inserting a wooden structure with new rooms in place of the existing barn. The architects focused on expanding the existing rooms so that they form a unity with the historic substance. For the new facades, rough-sawn, untreated larch wood was chosen to refer to the traditional structures of the region (Fig. 4). The "Stiftung Ferien im Baudenkmal" is a project of tourism and monument preservation. It takes over architectural monuments exposed to decay and threatened with demolition, restores them gently and gives them a new future as vacation properties. We show three examples from different eras. The Sunflower House with Art Nouveau interior in Arbon was the home of the Swiss decorative painter and photographer Max Burkhardt. Built to his own design between 1904 and 1910, it is a total work of art in its unity of architecture, interior design and artistry (Fig. 2). In Biel stands the apartment house built in 1933 by the architects Hans Wildbolz and Max Rikli - a good, straight-lined representative of moderate modernism. It is located in a strongly heterogeneous residential quarter with a beautiful view (Fig. 1). The original building of the picturesque Bergwalder-Gitsch Hüs in Grengiols with its elaborate facade paintings dates back to 1592. Gently modernized, elements such as the old beams, the worn floors, fireplaces and guild stone stoves still bear witness today to the long history of the building monument (Fig. 3).

Women in design: an exhibition with annabelle

Together with the women's magazine "annabelle", "neue räume 22" presents in an attractive exhibition well-known furniture and objects by female designers who have made a name for themselves from the beginning of the twentieth century until today with their interesting and also unconventional designs - from the tried and tested classic to the experimental textile project. Partly in collaboration with architects and designers, some of them have painstakingly conquered their deserved place. The crowd favorites will be raffled off among the visitors. Among them are icons of modernism such as Eileen Gray and her famous side table (Classicon), Italian architect and designer Gae Aulenti with the striking Pipistrello lamp, Hella Jongerius with the "Bovist" stool for Vitra (images 1 & 2) and Patricia Urquiola, who designed the "Shimmer" side table on display for Glas Italia (images 3 & 4).

Special shows - Young Labels part two 

At this year's edition "neue räume 22" 23 labels show innovative and unconventional ideas. From carefully designed planters to timepieces and attractive accessories, visitors can expect a promising and varied exhibition. We present the second selection, which shows the diversity of the exhibiting labels. Form & Refine is a Danish interior label that carefully selects the finest materials from around the world and has them processed in the countries of origin, taking into account the local craft traditions. The resulting collection pieces in Nordic design become even more valuable over the years. Dabisabi is a manufactory from Lucerne that produces beautifully shaped ceramics. d a b i s a b i carries the Japanese aesthetic concept *wabisabi*, the concept of perception of beauty - w a b i - quiet simplicity and s a b i - traces of the past, so perfectly imperfect. IKO. introduces a new armchair for office use. Each iko. Floating armchair is individual. Different materials and colors are available. No matter the combination, quality is always the top priority and the workmanship is impeccable. Atelier Volvox from Zurich manufactures objects for a more poetic everyday life: fascinated by colors, shapes and surfaces, interested in a wide variety of manufacturing techniques and with a desire to create and produce. The objects are made in small series by artisans and supervised workshops. (Credits Form & Refine, dabisabi, iko, atelier volvox)

From August 27 to December 18, 2022, the Bellpark Museum will present an exhibition on the American artist and musician Kim Gordon. At the suggestion of Kim Gordon, photographer Josephine Pryde is also involved in the exhibition project in the former factory owner's villa in Kriens. Both turn to the subject of real estate, gentrification, gentrification in an unusual way. A woman is a woman is a woman.... a history of women artists. This opportunity to question the art historical canon is presented in the exhibition on women artists in the collection, curated by cultural scientist Elisabeth Bronfen. The exhibition at the Aargauer Kunsthaus explores the relationship between visual art and sexual difference in modernism and postmodernism through January 15, 2023, while the Gelbe Haus in Flims approaches this Swiss phenomenon in the exhibition MYTHOS CHALET - Sehnsucht, Kitsch und Baukultur (exhibition through October 23, 2022). And we look forward to the inspiring atmosphere of the Maison et Objet fair and Paris Design Week from September 8 - 12 and 17, 2022, respectively (Credits Museum Bellpark, Aargauer Kunsthaus, das Gelbe Haus, Maison & Objet).

Sea, Sun & Palms - the Côte d'Azur

To enjoy a few more late summer days, a long weekend on the Côte d'Azur is a good idea. The summer heat is over, the beaches are no longer so crowded. Exciting new hotel concepts are attracting design-savvy vacationers. At the luxury hotel Maybourne Riviera near Roquebrune-Cap Martin, guests can spend the whole day lounging by the pool with a view of the Mediterranean. The new property of the London-based Maybourne Group (Claridge's, Connaught, The Berkeley) is an architectural highlight and the most spectacular new hotel on the French south coast. The Hotel Belle Plage in Cannes, a former beach hotel from the 1930s, blends perfectly into its surroundings with its flowing lines. The rooms are all blue and sand. Parisian designer Raphael Navot has been commissioned for the entire interior design. In Saint Tropez, Hotel La Tartane evokes the carefree times of the Roaring Twenties with style and elegance. Like a Provençal village, it is surrounded by a Mediterranean garden full of citrus plants. Rooms are spread over five small houses, all named after famous visitors to the French Riviera.

fresh from sea and garden: the cuisine of the south

Near Saint Tropez is the organic winery Fondugues-Pradugues with special rosé and red wines. The estate has its own highly recommended restaurant - but a special experience is the gray vintage food truck L'Ephemere, where you can enjoy Provençal delicacies under pine trees. La Petite Maison is an institution and one of Nice's hotspots. A restaurant, with a beautiful terrace, an elegant traditional space and that certain mix of grandeur and place to be. The cuisine has an excellent reputation in the city. Just off Cannes' famous Croisette, the inviting Bobo Bistro is somewhat hidden. In a stylish setting with black-and-white photos and a wall installation of old spools of thread, it serves varied seasonal Mediterranean dishes. Overlooking Marseille's old harbor is Sepia, a favorite for simple yet refined market cuisine. In 2017, the flat white building was completely renovated with copper elements, to which - and, of course, the copper cooking pots -the restaurant owes its name.    (Credits Fondugues, Nicola Bramikg Smart Traveller, Bobo Bistro, Sepia )

Prolongation of the vacation feeling 

A little South of France feeling for home, read on the balcony the book "a French summer" by Francesca Reece and drink a glass of rosé... In Cassis at Fragonard, after visiting the perfume factory, buy a summery fragrance for home (perhaps Coeur de Soleil), have the famous Tarte Tropézienne packed at Micka's in Saint Tropez and buy lots of Picholines olives at one of the weekly markets. The cheese selection in the box lined with wood wool gives off an intense aroma in the car, but where better goat cheese than in France. Together with a bottle of excellent Bandol from Domaine la Suffrène, the almost French baguette from Seri, the vacation feelings still resonate a bit at home.... and, of course, go there again soon - the French Riviera is worth a trip at any time of year. And in the meantime, you can console yourself with yes the new Downton Abbey movie, most of which is set there. (Credits Fragonard, La Tarte Tropézienne, rove.me, le marché de nos collines )
