Urban Feeling: Industrial Design
How to live in industrial chic
Unconventional, technical, but always with that certain something - the industrial style is a living style for individualists. The unusual furnishing originated in the 1960s/70s in big cities like New York or London. There, it is chic in the artist scene to move into old industrial lofts and to combine the conditions there with suitable furnishings.
Unplastered walls or visible pipes are part of the look. But an industrial look and minimalist, technical design can also be created in an ordinary flat with the right furniture.
This is what industrial style is all about:
- Colour purism - here, less is more and muted colours are a must
- The combination of rough wood and cool metal - black tubular steel is the best choice
- Furniture with a patina, no matter which material you choose - your furniture is allowed to develop a patina and look "used"
- Design lamps in industrial style are eye-catchers and provide the right accents
- the same applies to accessories: anything reminiscent of industrial work and factories complements the look perfectly
Industrial chic doesn't have to be uncomfortable, alongside clear wooden or metal chairs, leather and soft upholstery complements industrial chic seating furniture perfectly!
versatile and functional
Glass, wood, tubular steel, metal - the materials and furniture in the industrial design sector are always functional and at the same time have a particularly clear aesthetic.
Even if industrial design is often rather simply furnished and combined, the design luminaires in industrial chic are true eye-catchers! The luminaires are reminiscent of industrial lamps in all forms. Especially practical: versatile battery lamps!
