The places in which we live on a full time basis are layered with memories, furniture, books and objects collected over time. When designing an apartment as a pied-a-terre, an opportunity to create a site-specific interior opens up. This project started as a blank page with the stated intention for it not to become “layered”.
Because it takes advantage of a 90° sunlight exposure, we focused on creating a flowing experience from room to room, removing most doors in the process. Light is filtered through white linen curtains, floors are large oak geometric panels and walls are to remain off white. A selection of 20th and 21st century furniture then started to populate the space: Joris Laarman, Nakashima, Jeanneret, Mathias Bengtsson, Serge Mouille, Garouste & Bonetti, Mathieu Matego, Gio Ponti, Fontana Arte, Max Ingrand, Lina Bo Bardi and a few other pieces designed by us.
