Creativity and Innovation
This year Simes Studios was fortunate to collaborate on a very special project with Mick De Giulio at the newly opened Abt Inspiration Studio - an astounding 11,000 square feet of original and innovative design concepts.
The photos above show a general view of the entry ceiling and a feature wall with a trompe l’oeil cast concrete finish, developed at our studio for this specific project.
The photo to the right depicts a close up of the nuances of texture and hue, conveying a feel of raw elegance with a contemporary character.
De Giulio created this focal wall that features one of our studio’s exclusive eglomise techniques, a back painted and antiqued glass presented as a calligraphic mirror.
The artwork has been inspired by a quote by the late Bob Abt - who had the vision for the Inspiration Studio - with his warm, philosophic and inclusive reflection on modern life.
The photos above display a general view and a close up of walls with Brushed Opal, a custom glazed finish created at Simes Studios, providing a calm refinement and exquisite surface to a contemporary vignette.
Finally, in the lower photos we can see details of Twill, a custom Venetian plaster texture created at our studio that provides yet another creative way to expand the boundaries of plaster with an updated sense of sophistication.
