Martin Brudnizki Envisions a Bohemian Loggia Inspired by Cy Twombly
The top talent looked to Twombly’s ‘Four Seasons’ paintings as influence for a free-spirited space
From studios in London and New York, Swedish interior architect Martin Brudnizki melds the ideas of glamour and whimsy into infectiously chic atmospheres. Widely known for his maximalist designs for London private clubs Annabel’s and Harry’s Bar, Brudnizki is constantly proving his genius for pattern, color, and creating a mood.
“Cy Twombly’s work is based on classicism, but he does a modern interpretation of it,” says Brudnizki. “In the same way, my designs look back to look forward, creating spaces inspired by the past but completely of the future. This scheme for a loggia reflects that kind of eclectic mix—more bohemian than tailored, with colors all on the same tonal level.”
