The details: By learning how to jump between cultures- he was born to Japanese father and Austrian mother- Kobayashi has cultivated a distinct east meets west vibe in his work. As the latest in the Mikadokun and Mikadochan family of chairs, Mikadosan is a reinterpretation of mikado pick-up sticks, a game with origins in Hungary that is often assumed to be from japan. Kobayashi playfully brings both cultures together by using a technique that gives the wooden legs the look of pointed Mikado sticks, enhanced by hand painted sections in red, blue and yellow. “I always want to create something fun and beautiful that also involves some craftsmanship,” he says.- Hospitality Design Magazine. http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/hd/fall2019/index.php#/28

How to create interior in neutral shades without being boring?
It is believed that a minimalist interior in a neutral palette is very easy to create. It seems – what could be simpler than a combination of shades of beige, milk, sand, gray? However, often the result is very boring. When we walk past the windows of real estate agencies, we often see a familiar picture: in the photographs there are rooms of uncertain colors, without any life. The beige sofa almost disappears against the exact same beige wall. The yellowish carpet tries to show off against the parquet of the same tone. Grayish curtains do not decorate the room at all. That is how the look of the house becomes “dry”, there is no sense of volume and play of shades in it. The fact is that creating an interior in a neutral tones requires knowledge of certain rules.
1. SOFT CONTRAST
An interior in neutral notes must contain color contrast. If you use a combination of several neutral colors, it is better to use them with dark shades of brown and gray. Be careful – do not get involved in a lot of dark shades – there is a chance to make the interior too gloomy. Therefore, it is a great idea to choose several accessories or one or two pieces of furniture of a dark color, but nothing more.
An interior in neutral shades always looks more advantageous if the decorator combines different textures or materials in the composition. This move compensates the lack of bright colors that usually catch the eye. For example, you can use carpet pile, pillow fringe, three-dimensional embroidery, fabric folds, unusual wall decoration, fluffy bed cover.
3.PLAY WITH SCALE
Combine objects of different sizes. For example, large cabinets and sofas – with small tables and elegant accessories. Do not be afraid to use large objects in a very small room. Despite to popular belief, they will help to divert attention from the modest size of the room and create a “wow-effect”. In any case, the game with scale brings an element of diversity into the interior, which is very important.
This is a big trend now, accessories made of non-ferrous or white metal add an interesting sparkle to the minimalistic or neutral interior. They always look great on a dark or light background of any color. Now it is very popular to combine metal objects of different colors in one interior.
5.COMBINATION OF PATTERNS
Geometric patterns go well with stripes, for example. Also, the odd number rule applies in the decor: combinations of an odd number of patterns – three, five and so on – looks great.
You must think about the balance. Many designers begin to think through decor with flooring. The floor acts as a core of the interior – in everyday life we look mostly down and always see a rather large floor area. Furniture items and bright accessories should be visible, but should not argue among themselves. They need a fairly neutral background. If the walls are bright, objects against their background should be more modest and concise in design.
And, of course, each room should have a compositional center, some accent which we see first of all when we enter. It can be a large or bright piece of furniture (for example, a bed in the bedroom or a fireplace in the living room), a large bouquet of flowers or a picture. It is also important that this compositional center (focal point) is the only one. If there are two or three of them in the interior, the interior will seem overloaded. Think about what you see when you enter the room. Where does your look go right away? There, as a rule, there should be a focal point.

A new floating hotel and spa in the Arctic that floats in warm weather and freezes into the ice when temperatures cool is set to open in the heart of Swedish Lapland in January 2020.
Built on the water, Arctic Bath is located on the Lule River near the small village of Harads in Swedish Lapland, around 31miles south of the Arctic Circle. Situated under the northern lights in winter, and the midnight sun during the summer months, Arctic Bath is a unique hotel and spa experience that welcomes guests to immerse themselves in the elements while leaving a minimal environmental footprint behind.
Constructed using sustainable materials – wood, stone, leather and luxurious textiles – and with very little impact on the environment, Arctic Bath hotel and spa is the latest environmentally-friendly venture from the team behind the nearby Treehotel.
AnnKathrin Lundqvist, partner at the Arctic Bath, said: “We have a strong environmental focus. We’ve chosen so many materials that are locally produced.”
The hotel itself is comprised of six detached floating “cabins” and six additional cabins on land which are connected via floating walkways. The flotilla of floating cabins offer Scandi-chic interiors with double bed, shower room, underfloor heating and an exterior wooden deck, ideal for spotting the Northern Lights during the winter months or reaping the sunshine of the midnight sun over the summer months.
There are also six more elevated cabins built on the tree-lined shore, which are positioned on stilts above the ground so the cabins don’t disturb the natural growth below.
Central to the Arctic Bath complex is the Arctic Bath itself, a spa area which is inspired by “the timber floating era which recalls how felled trees were transported downriver for processing”.
The circular-shaped timber framed Arctic Bath, which is centred around an open-air plunge pool, also houses one spa treatment room, four saunas, a hot bath, outdoor and indoor showers, and two dressing rooms. The open centre of the bath invites guests to sunbathe, ice bathe or sit back to view the Northern Lights or star-filled skies.
A dip in the bath itself is consistent with the Arctic tradition of a cold-water plunge with the water maintained at 39 degrees Fahrenheit and combines well with the warmth of a sauna and spa. A special technique has been developed to keep the centre of the bath open during wintertime, adding to the atmospheric setting.
The circular building, which is accessed by a walkway, is also home to the wellness centre offering treatments including hot stone massage and unique therapies such as bespoke crystal healing. Designed by architects Bertil Harström and Johan Kaupp, native birch trees were used to surround the lodge and a tool used to dislodge log jams as inspiration for the shape of the cabins.
An on-site restaurant will be run by a Belgian and an indigenous Sámi chef with a menu described as Sámi fusion, including foraged ingredients and reindeer.
The Arctic Bath will also host several activities for visitors including hikes and paddleboarding during the summer months, and in the winter, northern lights expeditions, and cross-country skiing.
