Windows to the World

Anotherview

The team at Anotherview has created a series of evocative artworks with films of window views from locations around the world.

Shot in high-definition from real windows over periods of up to 24 hours, the films are played on continuous loops on screens encased in actual window frames, producing uncannily realistic, albeit nomadic, window views.  The installations create a magical experience, transporting viewers to unexpected locations, forcing them to slow down and appreciate the minutiae of daily life captured by the films.  Watch enraptured as skyscrapers in New York light up as day turns slowly into night, or waves gently lapping the shores of Boulders Beach in South Africa, or a farmer languidly criss-crossing the rolling fields of northern Italy on his lawn-mower.

These beguiling artworks serve a conservationist purpose too, as the artists aim to capture fast vanishing scenes for posterity.  Their latest installation, shown at Galleria Rossana Orlandi in Milan during the design week, features the view of a bustling canal from a palazzo in Venice; a picture postcard perfect vista which may well exist only in video form in the not so distant future.

Bring the world to your home with beautiful and evocative furniture from around the world.  The stunning Lake rug from Golran is hand-made in Nepal, whilst the Altay armchair from Coedition is the result of the best craftsmanship in Italy.  We also love the simplicity, style and quality of the Hiruki chair from Alki.

The Swirl suspension light from LZF is handcrafted in Spain and creates beautifully warm and evocative light.  We also love the spectacular Blossoms OLED floor light from Blackbody and the poise and reserve of the Kizu table lamp from New Works
