Creating a room with wow effect!

By Commersial design No Comments

Contrasting colours and materials can create a very exciting interior like this Bistro bar in Kuwait, whether it is for commercial or private interiors. Small tough, simple and raw features make an effect.  See how the rough wood walls with the organic shaped lighting create a wow factor to this bistro bar. We just have to think outside the box when forming or decorating a room. The key is to make something that will catch your eye!

Thanks to fantastic Dezeen! Se more pictures from this Bistro bar on there website.


Happy Tuesday everyone:)))

Taking wallpaper to the outside!

By Commersial design, Wallpaper No Comments

Awesome! What a brilliant idea from Farrow&Ball with their newly opened concept store in New York. They have brought the inside out side by treating the exterior walls with wallpaper. Wow -for a statement and it looks fantastic. It’s funny how one just has to think outside the box to make such an amazing and exciting feature for the sake of promotion. Though I can’t imagine it would last that long if it started raining though…but who cares it’s such a crazy fun thing to do…

Coffee at the Laundromat?

By Commersial design No Comments


Something I find really interesting about commercial design is that everywhere we go weather it’s down the street to the local shop, school, or even on the bus, there’s design in everything we lay our eyes on.  It’s funny how we take for granted what surrounds our every day. The lighting in the library, the flooring in the local shop and the colours used on the walls in the public room are decided by interior designers, right down to the littlest detail and nothing is left to coincidence. The public room should evoke reaction within us without knowing it, where ever we are.

And each public room we find ourselves in weather it is outside or in, are we largely influenced by the rooms’ special interior physics and dynamics which in turn puts’ our behavior and our mentality into a reaction. How does it make us feel? Are we welcomed here, are we at ease here, or maybe we feel a little hostile?

Of course there are many things to consider when interior is designed for restaurants and  shops etc. And with no doubt it’s a difficult task when there is such a wide diversity of people in the world to consider but hopefully the interior should make us feel well.

But this post I saw last week from the fantastic Ideas to Steal blog about a fabulous cafe called Laundromat Cafe in Oslo, tickled my thoughts and I just had to share with you here.  It’s designed by the amazing Simon James Design. For an example of an incredible talent we have in Norway and you can read more about him on his website! Wow factor galore and for a concept!

A so amazing cafe will you be waiting ages to see again so if in Oslo take a trip to the Laundromat cafe.

Happy day everyone.

Universal forming

By Commersial design No Comments

The importance of universal forming in the commercial world of building and interior was on the agender for a breakfast meeting at Kinnarps this morning. Within 2025 Norway has planned a project called ‘universal forming’ with relevance to equality for all people whatever health situation or obstacle standing in the way. From simplifying buildings and better access to like hospitals, libraries, restaurants to schools and even busses, makes life more possible for the less functional person to get out and about. Architects and commercial interior designers need a little reminder every now and then. So availability for all, I’m for that! Anyway here are some pictures from their showroom…












































Have a fair and equal day…:-)

Shop-interior delight

By Commersial design, Lighting No Comments


Discovered this awesome lighting, which finds in a new interior concept store in London called The Home Quarter. Fest your eyes on the amazing lighting they have used in the staircase in the shop. Very eye catching and original. Writing on the walls are a brilliant idea to add a bit of fun to any interior anywhere and easily done through a local print shop.
