Mady Fischer. Apartment. September 30th , 2017.
The main wall’s top is entirely open and a staircase made from a folded length of galvanized steel dominates the end of the room. The white beams and soaring trusses draw the eye upward, visually expanding the space and magnifying the natural light. Its creates a bright and relaxing space for the family.
In the early nineties, the family — with two young children — established the living are on the first floor, which meant the children had to temporarily share a bedroom. In doing this, Padovani removed all the walls and drop ceilings in the space, opening up the area and revealing a complex and attractive framework of beams and pitched ceiling.
The decor in the neutral-hued space is the artful chandelier, which is Zettel’z 5 by Ingo Maurer. It is made of stainless steel and heat-resistant satin-frosted glass. The “shades” are actually 40 printed and 40 blank sheets of Japanese paper. It’s a highly creative fixture for the owners, as the blank sheets of paper are meant for personal messages and drawings. All of the furnishings are clean-lined to help keep the space open. Floor to ceiling shelving provides plenty of storage and display space.
