The dynamic layout allows for the furniture to be easily rearranged according to the necessities of the residents. The furnishing was thought to integrate with the art collection, which includes pieces by artists such as arthur lescher, Raul Mourão and Vik Muniz, and to highlight the view to the sea. Amongst the furniture are pieces signed by great names of Brazilian design, such as the Esfera armchair, by Ricardo Fasanello, and the Gio armchair, by Sergio Rodrigues. There are also the Rest sofa, Adi rectangular table and the Tupi table, all signed by Arthur Casas. The concept of the interior design project was to combine the modern and the contemporary to attain a timeless character to the apartment.
