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.

One year ago, we were selected to design a space for the Contemporary Movement for this year’s DXV Design Panel theme,

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.
