The Season for Moody Modern Design

The slush of NYC and the prospect of several more cold weeks brings to mind a moody mix perfectly suited for this dreary time of year. But moody modern design does not mean depressing. Moody evokes mystery, and context, and hidden dimensions.

Rudolf Steiner’s Second Goetheanum

Photography, design, and architectural influences from Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & Partners, photographer Lee Sie, architect/philospher Rudolf Steiner aptly capture this feeling.

Moody is a state to ponder the bigger questions in life instead of the ordinary regiments of the day-to-day. An escape from the city is necessary to contemplate, unwind, and unplug from the constant motion of NYC.  But where to go? A beach in the tropics sounds tempting during this last rush of frigid weather, but the allure of a mountain escape seems more fulfilling. Untouched landscapes provide one of the best sources of inspiration, if only to clear your mind and soul. I’m thinking a cabin on Montana or a small castle in the Alps – or maybe even Iceland. Strip off the extraneous and get back to the elemental. What could be more beautiful?
