This apartment features a unique combination of Scandinavian style with decorations paying homage to geometry.
At first glance, Nu Infinity’s selection of furnishings in decidedly Scandinavian style contribute to a conventional arrangement in a neutral palette – with a simple, yet prominent, decorative feature in the form of an isometric cube providing an introduction to the theme applied in this apartment. The isometric cube is composed entirely out of opaque lines and a single black polygon folded over a protruding corner, resulting in a unique representation of a three-dimensional object, and located at the centre of the apartment to act as the physical and thematic pivot around which the décor revolves.
The path from the foyer leads to a walkway subdividing the seating and dining spaces of the open layout, with the two distinct areas being unified in the use of Scandinavian furniture and by the expanse of white floor tiles. To maximise the available space around furnishings, the rectangular dining table is positioned with its short edge resting against the kitchen island counter, while its long edge serves as a physical barrier separating the dining area from the rest of the open layout. With this configuration, the robust dining table can comfortably seat up to six diners without obstructing any of the surrounding walkways.
Mirroring the central geometric feature, and in contradiction to the deliberate simplicity applied elsewhere, the backsplash of the kitchen presents an intricate repeating pattern composed of overlapping hexagons. The dimensions of the resulting cells serve to alter the perception of size and scale in this compact corner, causing this wall of the kitchen to seem wider than if it was left unaltered.
The bedroom at the end of the hall is similarly furnished as the rest of the home – in a surprisingly balanced convergence of disparate styles, living accents are placed in close proximity to simplistic geometric forms and Scandinavian furniture, along with pale blue fabrics evoking imagery of the countryside. A hanging light fixture in the form of an icosahedron – a 20-sided solid previously seen in the seating lounge, completes the divergent assembly.
