This proudly presented dining collection begins with two perspectives by Aurélien Brion, synonymous with the promotion of innovative yet uncomplicated design. An apparently seamless, edgeless and endless line emanates from the Calla Lilly-topped table throughout this proposed Canadian space, subtly contrasting with the pseudo-industrial chairs and lofty pendant lighting. Experimentation with open space and natural light continues through the exclusion of window treatments and the incorporation of polished concrete underfoot, which, by reflecting light, does much to increase the size of the space.
Ceiling fans, often dangerously dull, are alien creations- objectified, as they hover above this sleek Fajno Design.
In addition to the ever-present natural light these highly sophisticated and thoroughly modern dining visualizations are linked, albeit comparatively tenuously, by something else. Slowly developing within this collection is an ode to the past. Rounded pendant lighting in solid shades of grey and black and white, the preference for ceramic or resin-like accessories in primary red and yellow over glass, geometric shapes as exemplified by Yasmax, and heavily textured warm wooden walls befitting early Eichler, suggest inspiration with undeniably retro origins.
The ability of visualizers such as those showcased here, to harness both creativity and technology for the benefit of designers, architects and the industry, is unrivaled. While one recognizes a nostalgic quality within these handpicked images, one must also acknowledge that never before has digital design had such a significant hand in bringing interior concepts to life.
