Upon arrival, the lift lobby is an abstract vertical forest composed in white.
Looking through the large diaphanous sliding glass door, one enters an abstract transitional garden, allowing the visitors to change footwear under a futuristic tree with lighting from branches made of half-arches.
Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, a golden rabbit surprises the guests suggesting a different kind of space-time continuum. Further along, under a giant disc-like ceiling, Living & Dining are not differentiated like any ordinary household. With references to Energy Pods, the two L-shaped sofas for Living & Dining are interchangeable. Here the Half Moon TV Wall in front of a giant mirror surface automatically slides open for a sneak preview into new ideas of future entertainment. Echoing the TV Wall is a sliding Solar Screen set against the balcony inspired by Verner Panton’s famous Verpan Chandeliers, here reinterpreted as a unique sunlight filtering device.
Directly opposite the Living Area is a colourful corner for music and imagination equipped with Devialet’s Phantom Wireless Speaker and Nanoleaf Lighting under a silver mirror sky. A white curtain forest leads us into the bedroom suites filled with more surprises for Tomorrow’s Living.
