This month, we are celebrating women, on the occasion of Women’s International Day, taking place on the 8th of March.
Being an interior design agency founded by a woman and where the majority of the employees also are, the female touch is woven into the DNA of our company. They are an important source of our inspiration, especially those who changed the world, aesthetically at least.
In this article, we want to pay a tribute to a couple of female interior designers who inspired the world with their work and lives and will set the tone for many years to come.
Zaha Hadid was a neo-futuristic architect and interior designer. Her design is characterized by curving forms of elongated structures with multiple perspective points that represent the chaos of the modern world.
Besides her incredible architecture work that gave birth to internationally renowned buildings, Zaha Hadid achieved some high-profile interior design work, like the Millenium Dome in London as well as creating fluid furniture installations within the Georgian surroundings of Home House private members club in Marylebone. In 2007 she created the Moon System Sofa for the Italian furniture manufacturer B&B Italia. She also collaborated with Lacoste for highly fashioned and advanced boots in 2009.
Zaha Hadid was born and raised in Baghdad on 31 October 1950. She studied mathematics at the American University of Beirut before moving to London to study at the Architectural Association School of Architecture. She won Pritzker Architecture Prize and the Stirling Prize in 2010 and 2011. She died at the age of 65 years old in Miami.
Since then, she shines within the constellation of architecture and design’s most iconic stars, dominated by men until now, like Jean Nouvel and Philippe Stark.
Kelly Wearstler is an American interior designer. She founded her own design firm in the 90s and has been famous for her influence on the design industry thanks to her work for the Viceroy Hotel Chain. She has many prestigious clients such as Gwen Stefani and Cameron Diaz, and she was one of Bravo’s Top Design judges. She has an Eponymou’s lifestyle brand and released 5 books, with a best seller named Modern Glamour.
Her unique signature is distinguished by its colors and rich textures. “My aesthetic is about mixology; always something old and something new, raw and refined, masculine and feminine.”
She has more than one string to her bow, she is a successful interior and fashion designer, and runs a successful store in Mumbai, the Cachoral Project for 10 years now. The concept store showcases her collaborations with different brands.
“The idea is to create luxury collections that are also affordable, high on tech, and in colors that can be a good fit in all homes.” She says.
Sussanne Khan graduated from Brooks College in Long Beach, California in 1995, and launched her concept store career 15 years later after kicking off her career in 2011.
She collaborated with leading designers such as Andrew Martin, Abu Jani, and Sandeep Khosla, which put her today at the top of the world’s most famous designers.
The designer uses wood, metal, natural fibers, concrete, geometric patterns, organic forms, and embellishments all of which are subtly woven together to create what she calls “Quiet luxe”. This is her style, which has evolved to a combination of industrial masculine with feminine edgy chic
