Formafatal has recently completed this flat with industrial taste within a new residential building in Prague. The 85 sqm apartment, with a lovely 50 sqm large terrace that offers striking views of the city, has been furnished with custom pieces designed by Dagmar Štěpánová, founder of Formafatal, combined with few iconic pieces of furniture, predominantly designed in the 50’s.
The architect started her work relatively on time. So she canceled every standard piece, which the developer offered, according to the concept were all standards unwanted. “It’s so incomprehensible to me, why is most of the new blocks of ats so tasteless in the Czech Republic,” says Dagmar Štěpánová.
A few of construction work was necessary to change – for example electrics, distribution of water, and size of door. But the first step was removing the plaster on ceiling and wall of the kitchen. The concrete prefab boards makes the raw feeling and crowns more the taste of industrial character.
The glass doors with steel frame were atypically made according to architects original design. In contrast to them are the solid door with the hidden doorframe, which are not charging the attention. They almost disappear. Everything is thought up into the tiny detail. The architect chose decorations, plants, linen, towels, and even she designed the pillows and cushions. The owner trusted the architect fully and she had almost free hands. The only limit was the budget.
“I don’t know why, but it seems easily to me to design the interior for the male client, no matter if flats or offices,” added Dagmar Štěpánová.
