Yala Wild Coast Lodge wins UNESCO's Prix Versailles

We are very proud to share with you our collaboration with Nomadic Resorts, Wild Coast Tented Lodge in Sri Lanka, won UNESCO's Prix Versailles for Worlds' Best Restaurant design 2018.

Culture and commercial architecture: two domains that are often depicted as contradictory. Indeed, commerce is associated with utilitarian functionalism, immediacy, playing it safe, and an impoverished style. Whilst culture is associated with beauty, creativity and a disinterested ideal.

The Prix recognizes the most remarkable structures, in terms of both interior and exterior architecture. Because the Prix is associated with Versailles, we want that world renowned symbol of beauty and elegance to serve not as a model but as a beacon or impetus for quality commercial architecture, today and tomorrow.

Architect Olav Bruin and Bo went to Paris to receive the award on 15th May.

The jury with chairman François de Mazières (Mayor of Versailles) included French architect Manuelle Gautrand, Chinese architects Ma Yansong (MAD) and Pritzker Prize winner Wang Shu, fashion designer Guo Pei from China, renowned French chef Guy Savoy and Former Deputy Director of the World Heritage Centre Minja Yang from Japan.

Narcisse mirror in design museum MUDAC Lausanne

Our Narcisse mirror is part of exhibition Mirror, Mirror in Musee de Design MUDAC in Lausanne, Switzerland. The exhibition runs untill the 1st of October 2017. Please find some more information below.

The idea that we live in the age of the image has been so thoroughly drilled into us, that all discourse now defines our era in these terms. Paradoxically, it has never been more difficult for each of us to read, analyse and interpret them. The speed with which images are broadcast, especially with new technologies, seems to be inversely proportional to our capacity to understand them in all their complexity.

The one object that has been inextricably linked to the idea of image across all ages and art forms, from art to literature, new media to design, must surely be the mirror. As well as its reflective function, it is has also been imbued with strong symbolic connotations. The mirror is thus associated with an array of myths across many cultures.

The exhibition Mirror Mirror takes the form of a series of chapters and aims to bridge the microscopic gap separating our image from our being. Our reflection is utterly specific, making it undoubtedly the most complex of all images. In it, recognition and illusion are confused, giving rise to an inner disorder linked to our constant desire to read our identity here.

Each chapter tackles a specific theme relating to the mirror or reflections, and presents an array of design objects, complemented by others from the worlds of contemporary art and photography. Artists, whether famous or emerging, offer their take on the idea which, on the frozen surface of the window, now defines our being in the world.
