Sophisticated Parisian Apartment by Olivier Dwek

Interior design is one of the disciplines that Olivier Dwek undertakes with a passion. His taste for the interaction of materials and unexpected, exclusive textures leads him to conduct all kinds of experiments with seasoned artisans. Working together, they engage in treatments of materials that generate sometimes unexpected results. For this sophisticated Parisian apartment, the materials are combined and confronted following a rhythm that is metered down to the last detail. Nothing allows itself to be fully understood from the outset.

Olivier Dwek likes to cover his tracks. Brushed aluminium, which boldly dominates the composition of the reception room, offers moiré reflections that could be mistaken with the grey velvet. The sense of a somewhat futuristic sophistication which he elicits is nuanced by touches of American walnut and natural foalskin introduced in the selected items of furniture. The stone flooring, shaped by the years it has spent in a riverbed, in turn creates an unfathomable impression, a vibrancy that appeals and questions.

In this highly architectural, urban environment, it was important to incorporate light and nature. According to Olivier Dwek, one of the major revolutions in contemporary architecture involves the thickness of window frames. Having now become imperceptible, they enable the exterior to reach right to the heart of this city home.
