Toward Utopia: Right Angles Need Not Apply in the Latest from Heimtextil

Jan. 11, 2019

Tatjana von Stein, a rising disruptor in commercial interior design based in the UK, shared her thinking behind the spaces she’s created for some of the trendiest spots in London. In Omar’s Place, a small fusion restaurant, she has so fully embraced curves and scalloped surfaces that one is very hard-pressed to find a hard edge or right angle, anywhere.

Tatjana von Stein, a rising disruptor in commercial interior design based in her UK firm Sella Concept, shared her thinking behind the spaces she’s created for some of the trendiest spots in London. In Omar’s Place, a small fusion restaurant, she has so fully embraced curves and scalloped surfaces that one is hard-pressed to find a hard edge or right angle.

Immediately after the presentation in Frankfurt, she told us she was jetting off to New York. Her next project is still a mystery.

Curves and arches are a key theme in this year’s Heimtextil Trend Book and Trend Space exhibit: “Toward Utopia.” The “Embrace Indulgence” movement encourages us to give into our desire for nostalgic opulence, to explore the feeling of private clubs with deep-pile fabrics, velours and all sorts of tempting textures. Check out the slideshow below for pictures of Embrace Indulgence's build-out area.

von Stein was a feature presenter in Heimtextil’s Trend Space lecture series.
