About the Project

Inspired by the Sci-Fi movie Passengers starred by Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, the family approached us to create a bold concept of their home where they can live in the future. The initial gleams of the concept were a monochromatic color palette of nature-inspired organic spaces with amazing visual presence, fitted with futuristic furniture that comes with sophisticated fittings with refined elegance.

The principal consideration is into streamlined shapes of the walls and in the functional application of inclinations and bends. The flowing lines of the walls, the decorative elements and selection of the furniture that can provide a comfortable living for the users.

The apartment needs to be an immersive and experiential environment. Lighting is one of the major elements in all spaces. With base palette as white, the selected hue light changes the environment with its lighting and color patterns to match the right ambiance for the spaces. The beds in te bedrooms are made suspended to defy basic laws of physics and to create the floating effect. The furniture is made clean to maintain the sleek look of the futuristic décor.

With the applications of recessed light belts that illuminates to guide the user to the bedroom, the interior merge whole aspect of smart home technology. The detailing was created to be sophisticated. All these aspects were translated into an integral design where space, interior, furniture, media and interaction and technology merge.

What’s unique about it

The design of the whole space has broken through the traditional home stay for conventional furniture among the norms of mainstream residential interiors in Singapore.

The apartment needs to be an immersive and experiential environment with the fluidity and organic forms inspired by nature, the concept must integrate the elements of both sense and sensibility, forms and functions.

One of the significant organic forms inspired by nature is the forms of the white lily, that created the form of the 'Yuri Table'.

With the emphasis of ‘no wood’ criteria by the owner, the materials mainly used solid surfacing, metal & glass material which can make the space reflective and appear larger. The difficulty lies in the design of different materials to maintain the constant tonality, minimizing color differences as small as possible, bold tones of grey are added to provide the contrast needed to break away the ‘clinic’ look.

Technology played an important part with Smart Home system in place, with settings and wireless lighting system that lets the user to easily control lighting and create the right ambiance for every moment. The system can produce colored lighting patterns that match the music from multi-users of Spotify.
