    Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, that is the theme of today and to reflect that we have selected a project that encompasses this mantra perfectly. Think about having to create a space using only salvaged materials from a bygone era, that is a pretty tough brief by any standards and even more so when you think of it as having to be a hospitality project.

    You can see on our Twitter Feed that today we are all about colour at EMquarters, the use of colour in interior design and architecture is something we love and we support greatly, colour has the ability to transform the most insipid and bland interiors into spaces of great creativity and personality.

    It has hardly escaped us over the last few months that Europe has and continues to go through very dark days due to the economic crisis, at the centre of this crisis is Greece, so much so that every time we turn on the news, read the paper or scour Arabian Business we are inundated with the doom and gloom of the Greek crisis.

    Those of you who follow us on Twitter or read our blog often know that we at Studio EM are massive fans of Japanese Interior Architecture and Design.

    The greatest compliment excepting the product and wonderful staff to a store design has got to be the Visual Merchandising. The Visual Merchandising has the potential to accentuate and lift a store design to greater heights, it can create a buzz or help to drive customers through the door, metaphorically speaking we see the Visual Merchandising as being the classical maître d or hostess, […]

    Many of our friends and clients constantly hear us harp on about great design can be simple design; the introduction of a few simple features can transform any white room or monotonous space into a palace of design. I suppose one of the misconceptions that people have about interior designers is that we over complicate things or tend to be guilty of over indulgent […]

    Creating a new modern retail or restaurant space within an ancient or cultured building and passing it off as something that is both inspiring and respectful to both the traditionalists and modernists is no easy feat. Last month we covered L’Opera project in another post as an example of a project that attempted this. Today however we are going to focus on a project […]

    One of our favourite office projects in Dubai has to be the Mojo HQ in Al Quoz, we covered the Mojo Gallery in a previous post and have yet to come across anything in Dubai that tickles our fancy quite as much. The whole concept of basing ourselves in an industrial warehouse as a head office appeals greatly to us at Studio EM, indeed, […]
