ax20 - interior am apartment / moscow, russia

The project INTERIOR AM with our AX20 pendant lamps is one of the Best Projects published on Archilovers in 2017!
1,000 of the most ‘loved’ projects, out of the 50,000 published last year, have been selected as #BestArchilovers2017 as they uphold high standards for aesthetics, functionality and creativity.

The apartment is situated in a pre-revolutionary building in the centre of Moscow.

The “shell” of the apartment  is designed as a reference to French neoclassicism – white walls, high ceilings, tall windows, parquet, plaster cornices, boiserie, wooden shutters … White walls highlight the proportions of the apartment and purity of the architectural form.

These classical elements are the background for the “antibody” – minimalist black box, in which all the technical spaces are grouped (WC, boiler, kitchen, wardrobe). The Box is a compositional center around which the main functional areas are situated: the kitchen with a four-meter long kitchen island – bar; the lounge area with leather lounge chairs, a biofireplace and a projector; and a bedroom with a small workplace.

Modern interior elements contrast in color, material and style with the classical ones, simultaneously complementing each other. Thus, the objects, such as our Ax20 suspended lamps, acquire individuality, creating a wholesome architectural space. AX20 is only one of the metal lamps realized by Axolight, that, for its lamps, uses many materials such as fabric and glass, paying great attention to the sustainability of its materials and processes.
