adam nathaniel furman has completed an apartment in tokyo‘s nagatacho district, instilling his colorful pop style throughout the 160 square-meters of its interior spaces. combining color, texture, material, and form into a theater of everyday domestic life, the residence is designed to elevate the client’s daily rituals and communal activities into a space of continuously seductive aesthetic delectation.

located right in the heart of the governmental administrative district of central tokyo, adam nathaniel furman‘s nagatacho apartment comprises three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large communal living area, and a terrace. a palette of pastel colors, natural and artificial materials, and an open and interconnected layout with gathering at its heart, combine to create a voluptuous interior. contemporary techniques and traditional craftsmanship have been combined throughout the house, such as the wooden details and cabinetry made by hand by skilled carpenters, and the marquetry doors being fabricated using laser cutting technology.

 

 

‘there is a 160 square meter retreat of pure sensual delight, a small but intensely crafted manifesto for an architecture that luxuriates in a hyper-aestheticized celebration of the senses, and of every-day domestic life,’ notes furman.adam nathaniel furman finishes nagatacho apartment with pastel colors + patterns in tokyo

 

 

materials of different qualities sit next to each other, all celebrated for their sensuality, and their effect on the imagination, rather than their origins. translucent plastic artificial marbles sit next to the highest quality hand-finished spruce, which is in turn next to the highest quality hand-made porcelain handles, which in turn are next to beautifully glossy nylon fixtures, hand-made carpet next to vinyl, and textured wallpaper next to semi-matte plastic wall finishes.adam nathaniel furman finishes nagatacho apartment with pastel colors + patterns in tokyo adam nathaniel furman finishes nagatacho apartment with pastel colors + patterns in tokyo adam nathaniel furman finishes nagatacho apartment with pastel colors + patterns in tokyo adam nathaniel furman finishes nagatacho apartment with pastel colors + patterns in tokyophoto by adam nathaniel furman adam nathaniel furman finishes nagatacho apartment with pastel colors + patterns in tokyo
