In Switzerland, a Cast-Concrete Mountain Retreat

The cast-concrete structure is punctuated with an irregular arrangement of windows, some huge and wrapping around corners, others smaller and deep-set. It has a large foyer and a steep staircase that winds up to the top floor, an open 750-square-foot space with a ceiling that rises from 6 1/2 to nearly 11 feet and windows with views of the Alps. Many of the interior walls are lined with plywood, to create a contrast with the concrete, Mr. Fuhrimann said: “The cold material and the warm material result in a really atmospheric feeling.” Read More

Much of her recent works have been made from porcelain rather than stoneware which Valéria manipulates to appear defiantly weightless. Read More

Adrenaline

February 25, 2010 Art in Interiors

Grand Prix anorak Kristin Baker paints for the thrill of the moment. Encouraged by her love of automotive racing, her large-scale abstractions appropriate every essence of high-octane drive. Suggesting the view from a Formula 1 car, Washzert Suisse advances with split-second tension: planes of translucent hues overlap as fragments of speeding light, freezing adrenaline rush as an aesthetic sublime. Using the unlikely subject of mechanical perfection as a metaphor for painting, Baker’s work explores the limits of commitment, focus, and endurance, her canvases poetically capturing an ambience of glamour and spirituality.
