Casa Cor Peru Lima Reviews
Casa cor Peru Nov 01, 2008
Peruvian cultural is growing, not just in the gastronomy or fabric industry, but also in interior design. Casa Cor Peru is a yearly exposition, and this time its eighth exhibition was held in Barranco, where two houses were redesigned by three designers to visually present how Peru can tap into the interior design industry, with 82 expositors and over 53 spaces to enjoy. The 2 houses are focused on the modern and Peruvian style each.
Nevertheless this event is meant to be for architects and interior designers; everyone who likes the design and looks for ideas for the house’s rooms (private, social, lofts, business and exteriors) will enjoy it. The prestige of this exposition is growing yearly and not only because of the quality and esthetic of the exhibited spaces, but also for the spirit of solidarity. Founds are donated to a Children’s institution. So you will be able to help the children while you enjoy the creativity from the Peruvian Architects and Designers.
The first house is the “Casa Dasso”. Its modern and international style is showed in the 22 rooms. One of the rooms I liked the most was the “Estudio de la trotamundos” (“Globetrekker’s studio) which was an interesting idea. According to the decorator it was more than merely a decoration, it was about traveler’s nostalgia. There you can find somebody’s memories and experiences hanging on the walls, like a permanent way to remember them. Each object refers to a place and time.
The second house is the "La Casa Peruana", with a contemporary Peruvian style showed in 31 rooms. This project wants to show a place dedicated to the colors, textures, combinations and fabrics that represent the Peruvian Culture nowadays; which you can see in all the rooms of the house.
Besides the architectural exhibition, you will also be able to enjoy the Peruvian Gastronomy. One of the best cheffs of the country has a café at Casa Dasso; and at Casa Peruana you’d be able to find the “La Memoria del Sabor”, where you can taste Peruvian dishes. Also famous Peruvian artists donated pieces of arts to be exhibited and then sold to raise founds for the children.
If you are in town during October and are interested in see what’s going on with the Peruvian designers, visit Casacor. Just check their website before in order to know where it takes place. Every year they change locations and remodelate different buildings, private and public ones. When you visit Casacor, wear confy shoes, so you can enjoy a wonderful walking.
