marcel wanders has designed the interior for the casa son vida, a luxury villa on the island of mallorca. the building is composed of both old and new parts, with a new extension by tec architecture. their addition influenced wanders’ design choices for the interior, in which he wanted to complement the building by continuing to bring together historical and contemporary elements. round and square shapes, futuristic blobs combined with antiques result in a mix of traditional and modern references throughout the villa, with the play of reliefs and contrasting surfaces creating an unusual atmosphere.

  • There definitely seems to be an asian/Japanese influence in these designs, especially the last one (bedroom). Very simple, with the furniture lines being low close to the ground.

    Very artistic but I’m not sure how practical the tight integration between room and furniture would be in the real world.

  • fluide, contraste, émotif, lumière, la maison d’un poête.
