New York, a city full of vibrancy and style, provides the ideal setting for luxurious homes that merge refinement with modern attractiveness. Boca do Lobo explores the art of changing…
The Blog Design Limited Edition brings you today a special interior design project, that reflects the essence of the work of Denis Kosutic that can be seen as an anti-traditional perception of the role of architecture in the modern world. For this interior designer and architect, architecture is a subject of consumptions, instead of a monument for eternity. Denis redesigned a baroque Austrian Palace, giving it a modern approach.
Boca do Lobowas part of the project, providing this interior designer, luxury furniture and sculptural pieces that served as an independent and strong character in the theatre play. Read on and discover this incredible palace!
This project was partly adopted and partly modified, according to functional details. “The real challenge was to integrate the existing collection of art, antique furniture and oriental carpets and to give them a completely new role in the composition”, said the designer.
The baroque history of the space was treated as a fact and a kind of a past imagination but the detailed research of it was not the issue of interest during the design process. There is a kind of baroque spirit in the air that was mixed with strong contemporary influence.
Pixel is an effort to honor the union between design and craftsmanship. The 1088 triangles that complete this piece carry the dedication and art of those who built it – with a diversity of finishes never seen before.
Newton is an outstanding moment of inspiration. A luxury statement piece created in order to fulfill the needs of who is looking for the best in contemporary furniture design.
The rooms thereby created have been meticulously dealt with separately, according to the principle “everything is allowed“. The various moods and sources of inspiration translated into the design of the individual rooms are always independent of each other and yet familiar.
Here you can also see also Eden Center Table, a sculptural piece that brings a contemporary twist to this baroque palace.
An intentional renouncement of clear definitions along with a casual play with the material result in an excentric “mix and match“ of shapes, surfaces, colours and ornaments. An enormous quantity of ornaments on wallpapers, fabrics and carpets in compositions that appear randomly but are precisely attuned, have a warm and familiar, but at the same time surprising and unexpected effect.
An abundance of antique, restored and newly designed furniture from all epochs have been brought into a dialogue with contemporary design and art objects, at times in dignified, at times in ironic compositions. The boundaries between “old“ and “new“ thereby totally disappear, creating a new, inherently consistent composition.
Most of these one-of-a-kind pieces were specially customized for the project, in terms of form and language, in order to create atmospheric tensions and emphasize the surreal mise-en-scène.
This project is without any doubt full of timeless pieces and limited edition furniture.
