Studio design

Drago Nagard

The creator of the MooN studio's modern image is Drago Nagard. This designer, who successfully combines trends of different cultures, can be called a world citizen. In 1978, he graduated from the Swiss College of Art and Design. Drago lived in New York, Seville (Andalusia), and on the Lamu island, Kenya. Since 1992, the designer has settled in Bali, and now he receives orders from all over the world.

For nearly 30 years, Drago Nagard has been designing the interiors of villas, hotels, and private homes. For example, the master made a collection of large chandeliers and furniture for Mohamed Hadid. He worked on special collections for the Rockefeller Foundation, Asia Society Museum, and Park Avenue in New York. Drago is known for his work for Beverly Hills, Sylvester Stallone, Ritz-Carlton, USA.

Drago Nagard created a unique interior with paintings and decor elements in the MooN studio. Entering the studio building, you will immediately appear in the beautiful world of emotions, aesthetics, and philosophy of movement.

The authors of the paintings for the MooN studio were Drago Nagard himself and his colleague, the artist Putu Pardika.

Putu Pardika studied sculpture and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Denpasar, Bali. Twenty years ago, he worked as a project designer, helping Drago set up a hotel in Hakone (Japan). For the past 17 years, he has worked independently and has had his exhibitions in Bali's three most unique galleries. He is the author of sculptural decorations of a number of hotels, for example, for Maya Sanur.

According to the designer, all the decorations in the MooN studio create an atmosphere of abundance, both external and internal. It is the feeling that overwhelms people during the dance. As Drago stated in an interview with Serbian television, he was inspired by the aesthetics of the movements, the personalities of famous dancers, and the idea that the energy in the studio should be clear and recognizable.

At the entrance to the yoga room, you will see a picture of a cow (a sacred animal in Hinduism) and a "rain of blessings".

You will see a large bowl in front of a picture in one of the corridors. Balinese people use this bowl for oblations to deities and spirits for health and prosperity. Usually, women wear such a bowl full of fruit on their heads.

The sacred japung tree is used for the lamps in the yoga room.

The paintings in this room are inspired by the beauty of flowers and the structure of coconut. They are all about the energy of growth because self-development and search for sources of strength are the main purposes of yoga. The Balinese call coconut "big brother" because it helps them survive and satisfy many needs: quench their thirst in the dry season and feed them with nutritious flesh. The Balinese build walls and roofs for their houses using different parts of this plant. Coconut is a symbol of abundance, just like the ocean, with its underwater flora and fauna. All those who happen to see these paintings will certainly be inspired by the idea of personal growth.

As Drago states, music shows us what our inner abundance is like, and colorful photos, varieties of flora and fauna complement this idea.
