If you haven’t taken the time to browse the 2012 Contract magazine, you’re really missing out on some hot interior designs. The IIDA Latin America contest brings truly gorgeous concepts to the fore this year. While we’re used to seeing western European offices showcased, we don’t always get to see all the brilliant work that’s going on in the interior design arena south of the border.
You’ll see some definite themes emerging here. The use of understated and natural materials like unfinished wood abounds. There’s also a trend toward sustainability with unusual surfaces like bamboo making a surprisingly sophisticated appearance in more than one winning entry. Finally, as you would suspect, the use of color is fantastic (especially reds and greens). Take a few minutes to feast your eyes – you might find some ideas to spice up your own office space.
