October 2022: Issue 222

In this issue

Welcome to Mix Interiors issue 222! Inside we explore the notion of home as it relates to commercial interiors, asking in our latest Mix Roundtable: is the ‘homeification’ of the office a positive or a problem? Elsewhere, we speak to ID:SR’s Helen Berresford to discuss designing for people and the practice’s mammoth projects for the BBC and BT, and sit down with Zoe and Layo Paskin - responsible for some of this country’s most celebrated hospitality destinations. For project inspiration, we look inside BBC Studios’ new Bristol HQ from HOK, Clockwise’s latest coworking outpost from Hawkins\Brown, an eco-prototype hotel by Gran Melia and the Mayfair stay that everyone’s talking about, The Twenty Two. In our regular Positive Impact feature, we talk sustainability with Foster + Partners, charting the practice’s role in leading the industry; touch upon the dark side of the metaverse; and look back at London Design Festival, curating the highlights from a bumper year. A big thank you to Ekho Studio and Karndean for this issue’s psychedelic cover artwork - inspired by the post-pandemic creative reset and reflecting the trend ‘random chaos’ using abstract shapes, disjoined patterns and clashing colours.

The logo

“We were thrilled to be involved in this edition’s cover with Karndean, which is a bold and different feel to some of the more muted colour trends to date. Influenced by the 70’s aesthetic and the fluidity of liquid lava lamps to create a fun, colourful and ‘groovy’ design to inspire use of colour.”

The cover

Inspired by the post-pandemic ‘creative reset’, Karndean Designflooring have reflected the trend ‘random chaos’ through the use of abstract shapes, disjoined patterns and clashing colours. Intended to instil a sense of happiness and optimism, the random and abstract nature of the front cover further reflects that flooring designs has no bounds, promoting individuality and endless possibilities.
