ZEN STYLE
zen  (禅)
Zen comes from Sanskrit and means meditation.
Zen Buddhist tradition integrates and reflects the intuition and spontaneity.
This is a series of complex doctrines and practices, whose central theme is self-knowledge.
While not wishing to deepen into the Zen philosophy, we approach to some concepts that have influenced decoration and art.
To understand Zen one must understand that everything has an essential structure.
It is precisely this essential structure what allows us to discover the characteristics of the trend.
Neutral colors, predominantly white, use of all ranges of beige, browns, earth tones, etc.
Monochromatic ranges.
Although there is a similarity with the minimalist style, in principle it rejects any dark range in color.
The Zen style tries to provoke feeling of calm, an air of mysticism and purity, using different resources like soft lights, neutral colors, etc.

The bedroom is, in a house, the space par excellence for rest and relaxation.
A bed of net lines, paper walls, diffused light, a carpet of non synthetic cloth, everything collaborates in order to produce a sensation of tranquility and calm.
Design is always an encounter between man´s imagination and technical tools that allow us to capture our idea.
