It’s hard to believe, but before renovation this futuristic apartment reminded more of a country house – all walls were cased with wood. The new hostess decided to turn her lodgings into a spacecraft and hired a professional interior designer. The priority was to arrange a few full-fledged functional zones within a limited area: an open-concept kitchen and living room, a bedroom, an extra sleeping place for guests, a workspace and a closet.
Area – 38 sq. m.
Interior style – futuristic
Number of rooms – 2
Ceiling height – 2.8 m
Plastic, glass, metal and artificial stone were used as major finishing materials – a traditional choice for futuristic interiors. To enhance the sense of the outer space, designers resorted to digital printing technique: real space photos from NASA’s Web-site were printed on a glass kitchen backsplash, on bedroom wallpaper (headboard zone) and roll curtains.
The apartment owner’s interest in fashion and architecture is expressed by several world-famous interior items: a Tulip chair (design by Eero Saarinen, 1956), Mirror Ball Pendant lamps by Tom Dixon and Ether chandelier manufactured by Murano Due (design by Patrick Jouin).
Special lamps are built into the window slopes to illuminate the blinds in the evening.
A bar in the kitchen zone is corian and glossy. It visually separates the dining zone from the lounge with an extra sleeping place.
In the bathroom LED lights have a few color temperature modes.
