Waha Lounge @ street delivery 2016

I’ve been taking long breaks from this blog. I want to write more, maybe on daily basis, but I need exercise and clarity. So wish me luck, I hope it will happen at least weekly in the beginning.

So remembering summer…another yearly project that I love and enjoy making. It’s the Waha Lounge @ Street delivery festival. Street Delivery is an urban festival in Bucharest, one that draws attention to the public life of the city, trying to make the people come together and use the streets for learning, playing, creating small communities. The community feeling is quite lost in the big cities, and in Bucharest is getting lost also. So this festival is making something concrete. It closes one street in the center of the city, for cars, and opens it for people and their activities.

Everybody wants to be there. In the first years, cause I’ve been participating since it started, it was more money oriented, but in the last years something changed and the whole gathering took a nice artsy turn.

My friends that are making the Waha festival, one lovely festival in the Romanian mountains, wanted to be present again this year with a forestry lounge, to let people know about the location and line up of the festival. The challenge is to cover more than 200 square meters in only a couple of hours, as the  street starts closing only that morning.

And of course, trying to use the old walls and fences and everything there is around. After we finished, we met a really nice Norwegian writer, by accident, and also by accident he told us he came to Romania especially to go to Waha Festival. So good energies attract good people. It was a nice preview for the summer festival, where we ended up in July, but that is another story.

Buffet 35 ~ interior design

There’s a new place in town called Buffet 35. It just opened in a nice and central area of Bucharest. It’s a very old house, from 1900 breathing history. So when asked to make a design intervention, I wanted to keep it nice and simple, not buried in a lot of useless objects.

This way we could focus on the light and we created special wall lamps for every room. We also found old wood furniture that we transformed and a beautiful stove that was a real inspiration, as it had many traditional motives that could be used. There is also an old bathtub that is going to be a very interesting couch, but didn’t get to finish it before the opening:)) Anyway…these are some pictures from the opening evening. Thanks to all the artists that helped me bring to life all this beautiful objects!

If in town, don’t miss out the food here. It’s quite good! All the pictures are made by Radu Spiridon, thanks a lot for that!!!
