INTELLIGENT LIVING By MDRN
There is something wonderfully refreshing and encouraging about finding oneself in the perfect place, at the perfect time. A place where all things seem to be working in perfect unison. The air is crisp, the mind and heart are open to all the beauty and wonder that nature has afforded us, and the clarity of sight to spot and see magic in space and design. Although these instances occur very few times in one’s lifetime, and can be so fleeting that if you don’t make a visceral documentation of it, you could miss the experience entirely, not grasping the divine messages being brought forth. Finding oneself at a cross section of the most absolute best in tech and design within a space can be one of those gleeful experiences. One enters a space – a world – where the possibilities are endless for change, for creativity, and for a truly aesthetic representation of our self; or rather, our many selves.
A futurist is someone who imagines the changes that are happening and re-invents particular circumstances or products that will become useful for how people will need and choose to live in a future that we can’t even see yet.
We are, after all, extremely complex beings with many incredible layers, colors, and shapes. So it should only be in natural order that the spaces we inhabit should represent that in all of us. And that representation, which is no doubt reflected in how we dress ourselves – whether in the masks we put on before we greet the world, the costumes we wear when tackling our days of work and play, or, in actual point of fact, how we furnish and accessorize our homes – that private and uplifting sanctuary where, upon entering, nothing matters, except a pure, unbridled and absolute peace of heart, mind, and soul. This is the very place where all things work in perfect unison. We feed, we clean, we dream, we rest, and we prepare, each day, for yet another day. It is this very place that we come to take that gentle repose after a long and arduous day, and dream of the wondrous and magical things nature has in store.
Why then, should that magic and wonder not also live in our furnishing? In this Mecca of great design, art, and fashion, there is a certain spot, situated in one of Manhattan’s most thriving
neighborhoods, that has actually been working tirelessly to bring to the world precisely this wonder and magic in furniture. This destination, MDRN Intelligent Living, owned by the famous interiors and futurist designer Warren Kay and located in the Flatiron District, has recently introduced its newest transformable modular furniture system called INTELLIGENT LIVING.

Quiet Lunch sat down with Kay for 5 questions to learn more about his life as a futurist and why INTELLIGENT LIVING is the new standard in design and living:
1. Firstly, can you explain what a futurist is and why do you consider yourself so?
A Futurist is someone that instinctually imagines, understands, envisions, and anticipates how the future will change. A futurist imagines these changes that are happening and re-invents particular circumstances or products that will become useful for how people will need and choose to live in
2. What was your impetus in deciding to develop INTELLIGENT LIVING?
It was something that excited me and I noticed that there’d been no changes in designs of home products.. For example, I wanted to imagine and re-invent new ways for creating products such as tables that have been around for a million years.
3. Tell us a bit about the materials used for INTELLIGENT LIVING?
We use all natural fibers and natural woods. However we are very conscious of the environment, and most of our products are recycled and reconstituted. We don’t cut any trees down and we don’t use chemicals. All of our products are emission free, and have zero impact on the planet. Our factory is 70 percent solar energy, and the rest of the energy is created from the waste from our manufacturing process.
4. INTELLIGENT LIVING is crafted in Italy, but you are have a reputation for seeking out designs from all over the world. Tell us about some places you have been recently, and what new ideas or products you are working wow.
5. A lighter question: if there were anywhere in the world you wanted to be at this very moment, where would it be?
I never actually think I wish I were somewhere else. At this very moment, I don’t have a need to be anywhere else than right where I am. I believe in living in the moment.
So who says you can’t live large in a small space? With creativity, ingenuity, and a whole lot of superior magic, MDRN’s INTELLIGENT LIVING is the way forward in how we furnish our homes, especially as apartments in big cities like New York become increasingly smaller and smaller.
And with Kay’s notable penchant for bringing to a wider audience some of the coolest gadgets and design items from around the world, one waits with anticipation to see how far INTELLIGENT LIVING will go. Robotics perhaps? “Alexa: I’m bored with how everything looks in this room. Reconfigure the layout of the furniture!”
