Apartment 7 - residence in Tessin

Inspired by the master

Le Corbusier's colour palette

High above Lake Maggiore stands a grand residence with eight generously proportioned apartments. The interior design transports the architectural language of the building to the interior. The materials and furnishings used were the free choice of the owners with IttenBrechbühl taking on a consultancy role.

The living area in Apartment 7 is dominated by shades of grey true to the palette of Le Corbusier. The «Camp Fire» coffee table comes from the Röthlisberger Collection, the sofa from Flexform, the dining table from Cassina, the chairs from Zanotta and the pendant luminaire from Foscarini, complete the array of outstanding design. The wall-mounted bedside tables of dark wood in the double bedroom were specially made. The changing-room is also stylish.
