themes from Surrealism and Psychoanalysis in the interiors of Sugar Suite
Keywords:Interior design, Interior fit-out, Spatial design
This paper looks at theoretical perspectives that emerge in a recent hair and beauty interior in Newcastle by the design practice herd. The clean white curvilinear interiors of Sugar Suite, cloaked by transparent images of fashion, engage a number of ideas relating to early avant-garde experiments with interiors, and particularly Surrealism. Demonstrating an ancestry with the work of Kiesler, Dali and Maar, this paper will use key ideas drawn from Surrealism and Psychoanalysis to decode the sensual interiors and the theoretical frameworks that support them.
