I’ve not written a long time because traveled to Russia .During my trip I stayed in Moscow, Ufa, Krasnyj Klyuch. The purpose of my trip was to visit friends and relatives . I also planned a very rich cultural program .I want to share with you all the impressions that I got from the journey. But in order not to tire you , my dear reader , I’ll write a few articles about my journey…

Today my article about old streets of Moscow . For me the meeting with old Moscow was exciting . I very like old cities and history about people who lived here.
A first street which I visited was Myasnitskaya street ,house number 39.
Monument of modern architecture by architect Le Corbusie . This is first modern building in Moscow built in 1936 year. More on the building here .

Street Ogorodnaya Sloboda 6. The building built in 1901 by architect R.Klein for David Wisotsky and his family. David Wisotsky was owner of famous tea company that exists today. Boris Pasternak (author “Doctor Zhivago” and my favorite writer) often visited this house . He had in love with daughter of David Wisotsky Ida.

The Butterfly Chair is my favorite item

Monday, June 30, 2014 0 Permalink 0

The leather butterfly chair is my favorite item .
The chair a cushy,light-weight and suitable for any room and any style.

The butterfly chair was designed by Jorge Ferrari Hardoy , Antonio Bonet and Juan Kurchan for an apartment building they designed in Buenos Aires in 1938.The chair combined metal with leather and promoted “the fusion of art, crafts and industrial production”
One from 3 pre-production chairs is at the Frank Lloyd Wright house Fallingwater,one at MOMA

The sense of tranquility by Japanese architect

Saturday, June 14, 2014 0 Permalink 0

Today I am sharing with you a project of Japanese studio Hiroyuki Ogawa Architects ,that inspired me .The project is interior design of pharmacy.
The architect describe :” We carefully chose materials and composed space to have customers to feel “tranquil” and “kindness” . I think that they have reached their goal .
The space has clean lines and monochrome colors ,that create calm and tranquil sense.
Although the space has no windows, the good planned lighting compensates for this lack . I like this space.
