A 1883 factory soon to be recycled into apartments in the south area of Buenos Aires is the scenario for the annual interior design exhibition Casa FOA, which benefits the Argentine Ophthalmological Foundation Jorge Malbran and whose tiny apartments, eco-homes, shipping container spaces and interior design ideas we've covered in previous editions.

The first space to pop up in this year's show, conformed of conceptual rooms created by architecture and interior design firms, is a home office by young studio Nidolab.

In a 54 Sq. meters (581 Sq. feet) surface, it includes areas for team work, individual time, rest, meetings and storage. Wooden surfaces and natural lighting give the place a warm look and feel.

The most lovable element of the setting, however, is the rug evoking disappearing Argentine pasturelands. It was designed by Alexandra Kehayoglou, who developed it as part of the sustainability lab of the rug manufacturer El Espartano (owned by her family). Created with discarded materials and production surplus from the company, mostly natural wool.

It seems like a good alternative to incorporate some green when real indoor plants are not a possibility. In this setting, they're even paired with some succulent plants, which don't need much care or watering.
