Design Inspiration
For the 2021 San Francisco Decorator Showcase, Martin Kobus was inspired to create a homage to 1960’s -1970’s luxury high rise living. The building was built in 1962 so it seemed very appropriate to go this route. Think back to movies’ interiors of that era reimagined for today. The Living room’s centerpiece is a recreation of Ennio Chiggio’s “Environ One” sofa that creates a zone for entertaining, one of several important, distinctive furnishings recreated for the room. The large contemporary painting is by Julie Mehretu. The artist’s inspired technique of figurative layering of time and historical influences pays tribute to the abstract expressionism and the digital age of society. The Bar welcomes you with a stone sculptural island that is in itself an art piece. Here the host can serve cocktails while friends lounge on the mustard floating banquettes and the teal carousel. Another recreation of an important piece by Verner Panton, the Easy Sofa from 1963. Walls and ceilings are clad in 3D sculptural backlit wood panels. The focus of the Bar is a significant digital piece called “ENSO”- a spatial calligraphy method that expresses depth and speed of the brushstroke.

Highlights
The walls and ceiling in the Bar are three dimensional sculpture oak panels that have small openings between them that are back lit with LED lighting.

The circular “carousel” seating in the center of the Bar does rotate, hence the word carousel.

The cabinets on either side of the entry to the kitchen are hand carved wood panels.
