The interior is the space in which people experience the most direct, somatic connection to the built environment. It is like a large raincoat with a smooth outer surface and a soft lining that caresses the skin, fastened shut with a zipper or a row of metal buttons. In the same way, the architectural materials of the interior are varied and rich in texture, ranging from soft to hard, from warm to cold, from dull to lustrous.
In short, an interior can combine different worlds in an astonishing and breath-taking way. In some places they collide, while elsewhere the transition is more gradual. It is never sufficient to deal with each space independently. On the contrary, the intricacy of interior design lies in the integration of the spaces an in the contrast between experiential worlds.
