Currently, there is a trend of mixing the designers new work with their mid-century heroes.
Driving this movement existed designers, who at time, may have been misunderstood as too avant-garde. The list includes such names as Eero Saarinen, Eero Aarnio, Nesso de Artimede, Joe Colombo, Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson,Alvar Aalto, Arne Jacobsen, Frank Gehry, Florence Knoll, and Hans Wegner, Frank Lloyd Wright (among others).
The Modernist reached a more mature spot between 1945-1970, in a completely new vision which combines aesthetics, utility and harmony to an ideal of life. This style marked by simplicity, clean lines, organic forms, and materials such as wood, metal, and plastic
With the dawn of the 70’s, the Pop Culture era evolved along with the trend to embrace intense colors and use of new materials. Plastic and fiberglass especially allowed for greater liberty to create new shapes.
The colour palette in the mid-century modern is timeless chic: teal blues, burnt oranges and olive greens set against walnut and teak browns, caramel golds, deep leathers and plaid wallpapers.
It’s almost irresistible not to fall in The Mid-Century’s allure. There’s a magical aura around those iconic furniture pieces that distinguish any ambience.
