Designer’s Brief: Carol Muller

We invite a designer to create a room to best display each of the four artworks we've selected. This issue, industry-leading interior designer Brooke Aitken takes up the challenge.

Carol Muller’s graphic photograph, captured on the streets of Tokyo, is characterized by architectural rigor and captivates me deeply as an architect with a penchant for Japanese aesthetics. Vibrant hues intertwine with bold forms, making her work ideal for contemporary living spaces marked by meticulous structure. Imagining her pieces adorning the walls of such a space, I envision a dynamic interplay between art, architecture, and interior design. Picture the photographic artwork paired with Night Rust rug from Tsar Carpets’ Passage Collection, serving as a rich, architecturally inspired foundation in deep orange- red. Complemented by the sleek silhouette of a Knoll Platner side chair in black, which echoes the elegant lines of both the photograph’s tiled façade and the rug’s design. Adding a touch of whimsy, a Bzippy Ledge side table infuses the scene with a dash of the unexpected. Against a backdrop
of off-form concrete, a comfortable Jardan Valley sofa in a serene grey- green tone harmonizes effortlessly. The resulting ensemble embodies a robust architectural backdrop that seamlessly intertwines with elements of comfort and invitation.
