When you think of Russian design, chances are you think of Lada cars or the bold graphic work on their revolutionary propaganda from during the cold war. So then, when confronted with what constitutes contemporary Russian interior design we drew a blank until we uncovered this project by Designov.
Traditionally, Russia looked to Spain for inspiration on how to decorate its living spaces, filling rooms with gold leafed classical furniture of the most ornate and decadent baroque style. Since then though, styles have shifted, however the method has remained the same. Russians are still choosing modern Spanish designs to adorn their modern living spaces.
Like for example this Neo-Pop styled apartment recently completed in Moscow by design Studio Designov.
Modernist, sleek and white in appearance, the apartment boasts amongst other contemporary flamboyances, a white and orange LZF Spiro Suspension Lamp by Remedios Simon, which, due to its exterior, blends effortlessly into the apartment. Only the dazzling orange underbelly of the fixture stands out, punctuating its presents and acting as both a warm focal point and a means of balancing the white heavy interior. The result we believe is pretty spectacular.
