Reykjavik, Iceland, 2019
"Solvallagata 67" is a very unique apartment-studio enriched by custom-made furnitures and site-specific art features.
The design concept's goal is to offer comfortable, vibrant and unforgettable short-stays to the studio-apartment guests.
Oak herringbone engineered wood parquet covers half of the indoor walls giving the environment an informal, fresh, luxurious feeling while a dark polished concrete background makes the bright coloured features to stand out.
The icy turquoise green bathroom tiles are visible through an arched door frame made with a stainless-steel sheet, the same material of the kitchen's top and entrance's "tunnel".
A "glacial" installation made with white pentagonal sound absorbers stands above a built-in double bed, defining an unusual sleeping area. The studio's main light fixture is a GloBall ceiling pendant by Flos, an essential sphere positioned above a custom-made sofa-bed that communicates with the artwork's circles.
Four Offcut stools by Tom Dixon and a Terrazzo table by Hay complete the tiny dining area, matching the colours of "cntmntn#10" and "cntmntn#15", the two artworks hanged on the dark wall.
