A young couple (contemporary art and design collectors) has contacted us to redesign the layout of a small apartment, in order to turn it into a holyday pied-a-terre in which show some pieces of their collection. The interior design’s inspiration comes from a painting that the owners strongly wanted to place in the flat. The grunge and highly tactile style of the picture has inspired the atmosphere of the whole room in which materials were deliberately left “unfinished”, the surface treatments are raw and the furniture is chosen for its primary volumes and hard shapes. The colors chosen are the ones from worn–out original materials, a part from the picture frame, in which complementary colors are used to put greater emphasis on the picture .
