The main idea behind this Moscow apartment project by Monoloko Design is to turn the interior toward the view from the windows. The interior is designed to reveal the entire space, drawing attention to panoramic views of a nearby park and rowing basin through the use of geometry and reflections in mirrors and glass.
The style of the interior can be described as functional minimalism. All furniture is clearly linked to the overall geometry of the space, creating a unified interior while also carrying a serious functional load.
Monoloko designed all of the furniture, which was custom-made by private artisans. The furniture can also be transformed when needed. For example, the partition in the living area with the sofa is also a storage unit accessible from both sides. On the sofa side, storage is found in the upper part of the cabinet; on the corridor side it is found in the lower portion.
