interior design

there is one more thing i did lately, i submitted one of my this year's projects for the competition for the Year’s 2010 Awards in Design, where designers, architects and students of all related disciplines are invited. here is the link (follow the link and scroll down for the English text) -- Gada balva dizainā 2010

and here is my project and it's realization:

this is what it looked like when i saw the place for the first time:



a 3D of the project:



and this is what it looks like now:







and by night looking from the outside:





a bit of textual description:
"The architecture of the unusual shopping center extension itself gave the direction in which to look for inspiration. Cafeterias room is 2.4m wide and 36m long, so the idea to create a „train wagon” came at the very first time, while getting acquainted with the object. The interior is definitely not a direct recreation of a train dining car, but rather a free improvisation on the theme. False windows, illuminated from the back, with fuzzy landscape pictures (as if one would be looking through a window of a fast running train) complement the overall impression and look particularly impressive at the dark part of the day."

creations and treasuries

i have been busy a while.. creating, taking photos and preparing descriptions. it takes a lot of time.
here is one of my new creations:



more you can see in my etsy-shop: www.consentiodesign.etsy.com.

meanwhile, autumn has come. the mornings tightly wrapped in fog and evenings coming early and chilled. kids are back to school and i'm staying at home alone for the whole long day -- very unusual for me to be alone for such a long spread of time.. i think i'll try to practice blogging. now i'm going to have time for it, right?

yes, and i wanted to tell about a treasury. you know, it's the wonderful feature of the etsy shop -- hand picked selection of items you can find among the endless wealth of handcrafted creations and works of art.
so, one of my silk flower necklaces was picked for a treasury today. i'm honored.
