In 2020, Charlap Hyman & Herrero took the wheels and reimagined the VitraHaus Loft as a luxuriant landscape to live in.
With the beginning of a pandemic and with much of the world encouraged to stay indoors, the design company brought the exterior to the interior.
In this way, the goal was to create a surreal escape. This design plays on the tensions between interior and exterior, public and private, old and new, modernity and decoration, scary and real.
The vibrant loft is in tones of moss green and sky blue. Also, various designs are integrated everywhere that refers to the art, films, characters, books, and places that intrigue both designers.
The cinema, in particular, has played a significant role in the creativity behind the design.
The casual nature of the furniture and the placement of art inspired by the trilogy of Michelangelo Antonioni L’Avventura, La Notte, and L’Eclisse. The trio of shell lights on Luchino Visconti’s Ludwig II dinner table and his cave scene.
While the design firm is American, they have carefully preserved a mix of furniture worldwide. All the pieces together and in their places have created a dream house that is both playful and thoughtful.
