I always find something quite admirable about stark interiors, mainly because I am such a terrible minimalist. This project by Slovenian studio Sadar + Vuga embodies all that minimalism should, but builds upon it to create subtle layers, which as they put it “…inspires discovery [and] stimulates curiosity …” With a material palate of epoxy, concrete panels, steel, Plexiglas and leather, the team at Sadar + Vuga have created a surprisingly soft and welcoming space with the completely grey colour scheme being brought to life with the various textures and finishes. The apartment itself is broken into defined sections of public and private with the almost Bauhaus-like structure of the design being punctuated by the soft and warm forms of the furniture such as the green velvet sofa and Thonet chairs. Altogether, this apartment set within an unlikely 1930’s apartment building in Slovenia’s capital, sets the standard for how great minimalism can be achieved and I for one am rather envious.
