The key challenge is to host a long list of contemporary art and antique furniture collections in the client’s duplex home without turning it into a gallery. Before designing, extensive research is done into the history, style, and material of each piece. The clash between modern art and antique furniture was the key. The design solution seeks to create the same clash. Implementation of modern French style, use of neutral, warm colors, and styles connected with the materials. FF&E complement each space to create an equilibrium.
Statement of the jury
The designer’s brief here – to integrate art and antique furniture harmoniously into the overall design concept – has been realised with consummate artistry. A magnificent achievement that enables each piece to be shown to optimal advantage.
