An Aesthetic Pursuit designs a holiday rental that advocates for daily living contemporary design

The contemporary designworld, like many other fields, is a very niche market, but its supply is saturated. Indeed, web, as well as places, is crammed with online sales offers and shops selling furniture and decorative objects of all styles, so that it becomes difficult to make a distinction, to find the ideal product and above all, to focus on the values conveyed by a product rather than on an aesthetic. That's what motivated creative agency An Aesthetic Pursuit (Brooklyn) in the realization of a unique project, an interior featuring their own products as well as those of contemporary design brands and independent design partners, such as Vitra, Artek, Eny Lee Parker and many others...

 

 

An extraordinary showcase for An Aesthetic Pursuit

 

An Aesthetic Pursuit - and their collection of Pieces furniture - has recently had the brilliant idea of combining their own products with other contemporary design representatives, whether it comes from mass production brands or independent designers and limited editions. The key word? Quality. Far away from the usual holiday rental, Pieces Home, in Kennebunk, Maine, is a one-of-a-kind place to live in total immersion in a refined furnishings environment, to create a unique "shoppable" and comfy living experience, proving to everyone that contemporary design fits perfectly into our homes and daily rituals.

 

A brilliant idea that highlights the cheerful and playful style of the Pieces collection. At the very heart of the project is many furniture of their signature, including the beginnings of a brand new collection including master rugs Wavy Runner, Three Stripe and Snapshot, the very massive design chair Teddy Bear and the astonishing and upholstered coffee table, Dose. These exceptional pieces actually join the ranks of an already very creative collection, by the clever use of the trendy colors of our time.

Thus, designers are proving that contemporary design is increasingly in line with travellers' desire to stay in special places, both in terms of destination and accommodation. Pieces Home is the ideal place to apprehend a singular and custom-designed space by a renowned creative agency but also to take the time to appreciate contemporary and quality products. A design-destination of a new kind, probably initiating a dialogue between the design niche and general public.

 

"In the ever-evolving retail landscape, all brands must look to engage with potential customers in innovative ways. By creating a destination vacation design experience, we eliminate the noise found in both traditional brick-and-mortar and digital retail settings. This affords our guests a unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves in a space filled with the beautifully designed products from our incredible group of partners and from each of our Pieces collections." explains Jenny Kaplan, Pieces co-founder.

A representative panel of past and present contemporary design

 

For the implementation of this project, An Aesthetic Pursuit teamed up with Vitra, whose iconic furniture here and there supports the ambitious project of the American design studio. Thus, we find pieces that are both representatives of the 20th century, but also much more contemporary ones. The Soft Modular Sofa by Jasper Morrison was therefore placed in the living room, dressed for the occasion in a modern-lilac color, very soft and in the spirit of the times, to which the brand to add the unmistakable Panton Chairs. Also, you can recognize the chairs All Plastic once again by Jasper Morrison around the dining table, and the very comfortable duo Grand Repos & Ottoman by Antonio Citterio

 

In addition to this historic brand, An Aesthetic Pursuit has also called on independent designers of the New York scene, far from unknown: Eny Lee Parker and Andlight, but also an online store of affordable artwork, Uprise Art, and many brands present in the daily lives of Americans (see complete list at the end of the article).

Pieces Home is an experience of a new kind, which in addition to advocating the design of the present time, also raises the question of collaboration in the design community, a real driving force for innovation, but also for everyone's success, thanks to group dynamics but also to the products, naturally enhancing each other. It is clear that in this age of individualism, it is those who are able to associate and create partnerships that will leave their mark on what is considered contemporary design.

 

"We were thrilled to partner with Pieces on their inaugural Pieces Homes concept. Vitra has historically been driven by innovative, design-led projects and we are excited to be a part of a concept that mixes, retail, hospitality, travel and design." says Melissa Shelton, Vitra President, North America.
