Elisa Ossino and Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer, creative directors and founders of H+O, reveal their apartment installation, Perfect Darkness, during Milan Design Week 2019.

Born out of creativity and curiosity, Perfect Darkness apartment is a venue where the past meets the future, where silence meets sound, and where darkness meets light. Without one, the other would not exist. By balancing the choice of materials, colours, and shapes, the essential becomes obvious and the two designers create a feeling of home.

With Perfect Darkness, the vision of Danish creative director of File Under Pop Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer and Italian architect and designer Elisa Ossino was to create an apartment installation bringing innovation with the introduction of a new concept: the use of tiles at the centre of the project as an element of connotation of all the environments. Elisa Ossino Studio designed the interiors of the apartment. The quintessential feature of this restructuring project is the tile, featured in every room of the space.

The other central feature of the project is the use of geometric patterns running through various rooms with variations created by the use of different formats, carefully curated furniture and tailor-made furnishings. The choice of colours, in collaboration with File Under Pop, emphasises the vibration of light highlighting the sequence of environments in a continuous transition from darker to brighter spaces. All rooms, characterised by the presence of patterns, colours, lights and sounds, are conceived as individual installations in a process of spatial abstraction.
