The Chamber of Curiosity by Gestalten is more than a collection of some of the best interiors from around the world. With its added strong focus on the occupants as well as their very essence, the publication also manages to unlock the individual character of the incredible interiors showcased. Featuring the homes of designers and architects from Paris to Pittsburgh and Milan to Melbourne, the reader has the opportunity to view interiors that are personal, not to mention strikingly diverse where we witness tributes to Kubrick and Lynch through to the most unlikely combinations of colour, texture and styles. The result is a book of pioneering interior design that focuses on telling the story behind the interiors themselves rather than merely illustrating the latest industry trends. As its title suggests, each home is indeed a ''Chamber of Curiosity''. Further reflecting the unconventional life patterns of its inhabitants, the reader is taken deeper, almost partakes on a tour of these exciting interiors where portraits of some of the most significant designers, from Fritz Hansen to Autoban through to Dimorestudio further relay the inhabitants’ deep appreciation of design.
