Yearning for blue
California. The American West Coast state stands for laisser-faire and a permanently blue sky. Bernd Gruber repeatedly makes this 'longing for blue' appear in the interior of a property above Beverly Hills as a colour reference: whether as a monolith in the middle of the living area or as a purist kitchen block, as a luminous leather cupboard in a bedroom imbued with the spirit of the West Coast or as a dominant eye-catcher on the floor.
Wood panelling forms a self-confident contrast. Sometimes smooth as an entire wall surface, sometimes with vertical lines, they break through the spaciousness of the space at selected points and thus provide a pleasant grounding, which was sought by the building owners. Its noble origin can be seen in the wood. Mangaris is a native hardwood whose natural colour and resistance meet the high demands!
