The Contemporary Movement is always reinventing itself according to Laura, which allows her to feel both “out of control and in complete command.” From this healthy balance, she created a warm bathroom inspired by one photographer’s play of light and shadow upon a strong architectural canvas. Intimate and sensual, Laura designed this space to respond artfully as the natural light moves gracefully from morning to afternoon to twilight to moonlight. Reclaimed teak flooring-beautiful, sustainable and ideal for what rooms-unites this shadow-shifting room. – Veronika Miller, CEO Modenus.
It was a year in the making, and on September 12, 2018 our TOP SECRET design was finally revealed at the Agora Gallery in New York City.

Inspired by 21st Century black & white architectural/interior photography, we created a healing space where light and shadow could dance throughout the day and night to reveal stunning shapes and shadows. With retractable clear skylights and frame-less windows that slice through strong architectural planes, a seemingly static white space becomes a dramatic yet serene hypnotic playground; igniting a new relationship with the sun and moon each day by harnessing their energy and color story. Seamlessly installed earthy toned teak reclaimed plank floors provide a durable grounded flow from bath to shower to lounge. The juxtaposition of vertical and horizontal layers of neutral lines, bold shapes and organic materials, inspires a relaxing, exciting, restorative daily destination.
