We loved the 2014 Rem Koolhaas-curated Venice Biennale exhibition, Fundamentals. The show isolated a building's constituent parts and presented them in a ground-breaking way as individual displays of balconies, corridors, windows, doors and so on.

In fact, we thought it would be instructive to follow Rem's lead and pick apart the interiors in our great new design book, Room, anatomising them to their constituent parts. We’ve already picked out some of the best lights and staircases. Today we would like to show you some interesting windows in the new book

Click through this gallery; from cardboard-framed stained glass to twig-lined fenestrations, Room, has them all! If you like what you see, buy a copy of the book here.
