Record label office / Two interior design studios
Text description provided by the architects. The office of the sound recording company is located in a five-story brick building, the foundation of which dates back to 1910. Artist A. Lentulov lived in this house for 30 years.
It is impossible not to respect a house with such an artistic heritage, but it would also be uninteresting to indulge in indirect quotes. And it is clear that the interior of the sound recording house that operates at this address must take into account not historical reminiscences, but the comfort and convenience of the employees.
In collaboration with the graphic designer Polina Glynina, who borrowed the image of a Maneki Neko – a “lucky cat” from the Bosnian tattoo artist Igor Lazarevich, and collected Japanese posters from the 50s-60s (Yoku, Hisami Kunitake, Ikko Tanaka and Frenchman Bernard Villemo) and street art graffiti artists Broken Fingaz from Haifa Walls, we continued to work on the idea of decorative platitudes inscribed in the volume of ancient architecture. And, of course, the magnificent works of artist Andrei Naumov are surprisingly correlated with the subject of cinema, which is also produced by the client company.
Together, we managed to create an authentic interpretation of the architectural heritage of the eclectic layers of the past, and the interior acquired the charm of an old Moscow house, which it had been deprived of for many years.
