"Our lives are inseparable from space, light and order, just like we cannot do without bread and sleep." These words by Le Corbusier are the inspiring concept for this residential project in Chongqing. Here is the world away from chaos of the city. Space becomes liquid, divided into just four rooms over a surface of 700 square meters. High-rise ceilings give space to Poltrona Frau’s contribution to this elegant and sombre atmosphere. Stable and restrained, the character of the homeowner and his wife, is perfectly presented in the use of neutral tones throughout the house. The living and dining areas are dominated by grey and sand nuances, where daylight comes from the huge floor-to-ceiling windows. Two adjoining but separated sitting areas create multiple convivial or relaxing occasions, on the left GranTorino sofa and two Archibald armchairs with a round Ilary coffee table in the centre, all designed by Jean-Marie Massaud. A Blue Pallo grey glass vase by Carina Seth Andersson reflects the light and the moment. In the second sitting room, with a modern white mantlepiece, a Mamy Blue armchair by Roberto Lazzeroni and matching pouf create the perfect reading corner. From the study to the bedroom, every piece of Poltrona Frau fits perfectly with the house.
In the TV area, where grey tones characterise the space, we find the famous Dezza armchair by Gio Ponti in a bright light blue, with a Fiorile coffee table.
In the studio room, we find a Lloyd bookcase with a Downtown president office chair, completed by a Leather Pot vase. The main dining room discovers light and nature through the glass façade over a Bolero table surrounded by Montera chairs (both by Roberto Lazzeroni), while in a second dining room we find a round version of Bolero table with Lazy Susan turn top. Montera chairs, in white and black and a Fidelio High cabinet complete the scene. Fidelio Notte bed, and a Nivola armchair both designed by Roberto Lazzeroni are the protagonists of the last space, the sleeping area, in the same colour theme that characterizes the entire home: grey, white and sand.
