Michael and Alexandra Misczynski understand completely and viscerally what the Japanese call "Ma". The unseen energy surrounding objects, or rather the intrinsic importance of having open space in a house, as it is the void that is after all the beginning of everything.

Their new book Interiors/Atelier AM by Rizzoli is so nuanced and quietly eloquent. This quote from the book completely sums it up succinctly:

" A central tenet of their practice is the belief that architecture drives interior design, and that a house will never sing, regardless of the treasures it contains, if the architecture is compromised."

Well said and bravo!
