Ester a Juror for Frame Awards

Ester is on the jury for Frame Magazine's Frame Awards for Interiors of the Month. Submissions are evaluated by a board of industry leaders from across the design profession.

MATERIAL OF CHOICE

We were asked by Baunetz interior|design about our current material favorites. We answered about colored MDF that we used in Remi and are using in an upcoming project for Relaxound. From the interview: "When cut, it reveals its interior like a cut piece of butter. The colors are through-dyed and no added formaldehyde is used. So, unlike other MDF materials, the environmental impact is reduced during production and use."

Our restaurant Villa Kellermann was was selected for the the Callway publication, “Die schönsten Restaurants & Bars 2021." From the book: "The furnishings of the three atmospherically exceptional guest salons in the Villa Kellermann deliberately leave the walls free, creating enough space for the dialogue between history and modernity...The result is a vibrant collage that weaves the spirit of the historic villa with the present."

Our new book, Works, is published!

Works documents 15 recent projects and describes what we like:

Articulation in Carlo Scarpa’s details,
The contrasts of genre in John Zorn’s blocks of sound,
The work ethic of Andy Warhol,
The aura of Miles Davis’ On The Corner,
The abundance of a Russian table setting,
The blink in Chris Marker’s La Jetee,
Having the sky on both sides,
Trust in Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha,
The use of pink in de Kooning,
The interiority of Vermeer,
The brashness of Lee Krasner’s canvases,
The immateriality of apparent simplicity,
Revealing the beauty of a material...
