Geeky interiors on display in Makati

If you're planning on redesigning your rooms, you might find inspiration from the “OPM: Obra Para sa Musika,” the graduation exhibit of the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) Advanced Class of 2013. These interior spaces are on display throughout October at the 3rd level of Glorietta 3 (near Planet X).

"Hari ng Sablay"
Designed by: Andrea Manalang, Margarita Mayoralgo, Karla Ortigas, Mapple Panganiban and Carla Peña

Inspired by the Sugarfree song, the bedroom's lack of symmetry creates a look of organized chaos. According to the designers, the focal point is the hanging bed strategically placed at the room’s center. The irregular cuts and materials used for the flooring and the various objects hanging above the ceiling are also a metaphor for geeky hobbies.

Based from Kamikazee's song about a man's love for the Filipino superheroine, this design for a novelty store incorporates a rough and masculine feel with elements from the punk rock era. Comics-style graphics and icons in the mural and on the shelves establish the novelty store selling both comics and apparel. The ceiling design takes its inspiration from the wings of Darna’s head cap. The gold cashier, one of the main focal points of the booth, is inspired by the heroine’s cuff. 

Design is an opportunity to continue telling the story, not just to sum everything up.
