This old new reference came across while I was browsing the coolest design website ever. The Japanese interior design company Wonder Wall, established by Masamichi Katayama, has a large variety of very inspiring projects and this one, which I found rather inspired….by Alvaro Alto Viipuri Library, Finland.
The NEW: The dining area of the Cinagro Kitchen & Market, Tokyo 2007.
This is an organic food market and cafe restaurant located in the Omotesando area. The aim was to create an atmosphere that would exude freshness and comfort.
Here the effect is achieved by the recessed ceiling with the cove lighting.
The OLD: The Viipuri Library by Alvar Aalto, 1935
The Library in Vyborg (Viipuri Library) was designed by alvar Aalto and completed in 1935. It is a masterpiece of International Modernism in both European and global terms.
