When you think of 1980s interior design, images of cylinder coffee tables and black lacquer headboards may come to mind. And while we hesitate to interrupt that wonderfully glossy vision, we love how today’s light installation created by Berlin-based design trio KINZO mixes modern decor with ’80s inspiration.
To concoct the perfect ceiling-mounted statement for clothing store Maygreen, KINZO cleverly drew influence from a computer chip. Leaving cables exposed, they created a functional art piece that conjures images of electronic detailing. Or ’80s science fiction. We love how each fixture ends in a cylindrical teal ceiling lamp or a globe fixture.
We also can’t help but marvel at the way such a stunning ceiling art piece takes center stage in the store’s all-white interior. In case you’re wondering about the dotted mural on the wall in the picture below, it’s a grasshopper. As far as we’re concerned, Maygreen may as well be a museum!
Who would have thought exposed cables could be another ’80s design tool? A special thanks to KINZO for inspiring today’s post. Happy Wednesday!
