The Brazilian architecture firm of Felipe Hess has designed this bright and spacious apartment located in a 1960’s modernist building in São Paulo for its owner, a young actor who lives alone. With the brief calling for a spacious, open and clean-cut space, the designers decided to tear down almost every wall and unify all social areas. One of its unique features is a 10-meter-long table that runs along one side of the loft-like space, serving different purposes at different points (functioning as a cooking table and office desk with inlaid power plugs and dining table). The apartment’s private areas, comprising a master bedroom with bathroom and closet and a small toilet for visitors, are separated by a large white wall. Reflecting the owner’s occupation, a special area has been created opposite the kitchen for rehearsing plays, simply furnished with a few chairs and amply lit with natural light. via Yatzer
Interior designer André Fu was tasked with the responsibility of transforming part of a private member’s club on Wellington Street, Hong Kong into an exclusive pop-up apartment spanning 3,500-sq-ft for fashion powerhouse Louis Vuitton.
The grand set-up was furnished with a study, boudoir, living and dining areas, complete with a Michelin-starred chef.
Stealing all the limelight is the dining room, where Fu’s bespoke ceiling lights pay homage to the luxury label by casting a subtle LV glow when switched on.
The invitation-only space will operate as a luxurious ‘urban oasis’ over a six-week period for the brand’s most valued local customers. L’Appartement is the designer’s first collaboration with a brand. source : design taxi & wallpaper
