CGI has never looked so real!

Pix main image

In 2009 Set Visions embarked on an adventure into the world of CGI. We created our brand “Pix”, which delivered undisputed photorealistic images. 8 years on and we’re delivering incredibly emotive imagery using our Pix technology, CGI has never looked so real, so lifestyle, so daylight.

Pix can also offer tremendous logistical benefits over traditional photography, and using techniques we’ve honed over the years, we deliver consistent quality and speed at the most competitive rates. Take a look at our all new CGI website to see some of our latest work - prepare to be amazed! pix.setvisions.co.uk

Trend Alert-Mixed Materials in the Kitchen

We've been championing the Mixed Materials Trend during 2016 in a lot of our Kitchen images and we believe this trend will only grow in strength during 2017. By bringing natural materials into our home we add a connection to a lifestyle that celebrates and embraces nature and its unique imperfections. Below are some of our favourite examples.

Surface design that mimics nature

The Stone Blue facia utilises the latest technology in surface design. The textured surface of the
wood grain effect makes it a great solid wood replica with all the benefits of a laminate. This has been layered with tonal marble and cool greys for an elegant and refined look.

By using the textured Walnut facia in the industrial style kitchen, warmth has been added to the palette. The tactile mix of textured Walnut, embossed tin wall tiles with textured slate lends personality to the clutter free kitchen.

Exposing and unifying the look

The skylight in the Oak Shaker kitchen is divided by textured wooden beams and exposed sandstone, creating contrasts with the slick finish of the painted plaster. What we choose to expose and hide creates an interesting commentary for any contemporary kitchen.

Mixing materials doesn’t always require contrasting textures. The matt doors, matt walls and semi-matt floor tiles combine the same texture but still allow to stand out in the kitchen. The use of one grey hue ties the look together.

An insignt into Clerkenwell Design Week

This week at Set Visions our head of creative Jal has been feeding back inspiration and design news to fellow SV stylists (and now you) about her recent jaunt to Clerkenwell Design week. Clerkenwell Design Week showcases the best in past, present and future works of leading designers and architects. For 3 days the area of Clerkenwell is transformed into a cleverly curated, buzzing hive of design.

Heres Jal's lowdown and highlights from her visit.

1

This is Clerkenwell Design Week’s 7th year and I am delighted to have caught a glimpse of the future of design. I started my day at the, ‘Icon House of Culture’. This unusual industrial renovated space is the award winning club ‘Fabric.’ With its underground appeal and lack of natural light it was the perfect spot to play host to lighting design studios which includes EBB & FLOW, Bert Frank, Di Classe, Dare Studio and Haberdashery to name but a few.

2

As I walk through the buzzing streets full of creative eyes trying to find the ‘Detail’ zone, I am greeted by a 4.5 metre high structure nestled inside the historic, St John’s Gate. This structure was designed by ‘Flea Folly Architects’ collaborating with Dutch floorboard manufactures ‘Hakwood’ designed to create a moment of calm. Through the gate I entered a modern slated structure named, ‘Museum of Making,’ pavilion by ‘White Arkitekter,’ where a workshop of pendant punching was taking place.

3

I walked around to Clerkenwell Close and entered St James Church I could hear the soft sound of classical music echoing through the structure. British Designer Tom Dixon curated the space as co working space and restaurant. The beautiful stain-glass windows and traditional features of the church set against the perfect atmosphere to worship great design.

4

In my short time at the design week I had the pleasure of listening to a seminar, ‘Digital in design: exploring new possibilities’. The discussion was about how 3D printing is transforming the way brands produce design and what future effects it will have. Being from Set Visions this was something that is pivotal to our future.

5

I saw and absorbed as much as I could on my jaunt. The great thing about this festival is that is has over 100 designer show rooms in 2.5sq miles. It is a warm inviting event that opens its doors to normally off limit areas and welcomes the viewers to see the studios and workshops where great designs have taken place.
