The new interior design element-the lock
Did you know even locks are part of interior design? Apparently they are now considered artistic as well as functional. See the description of this latest lock offering here.
Well I suppose it had to come about sooner or later. its not a new thing this looking at industrial macinary and functional objects as art forms. This is the contemproary “no paint needed”contemporary art. As far back as the 30s ready made objects could be seen as art. Now instead of buying a used sofa for sale for practical purposes, we have convinced ourselves of the astethic advantages of “art furniture’’.
Marcel Duchamp introduced his “ready made”which was none other than a bottle rack purchased from a local department store. The good thing a bout “ready made”art is it gets misplaced unlike a painting it can be replaced quite easily. Indeed there were many replacement of Marcels Duchamps “Bottle Rack”. At least a viewer wasn’t too surprised when they saw the artwork as the name was pretty much self descriptive.
Interior design is an interesting designs field. There are just so many objects that be utilized in order to design an interior. These can be form wall hangings, to plants, to fountains both indoor and outdooor and lighting to name a few. These features can all come together to create a beutifully designed space in which to live, work or even worship.
The interiors of old building were often beutified with exotic paintings and murals. Todays places of worship still have stained glass and can have more modern elements. Workplaces and offices often invite interior designers to place the furniture just right and bring all the contemporary colours of the workstations together including choosing the colour tones of carpets, curtains and screen dividers. And know we even have locks to add to the interior designers tool box.
