Through careful zoning and thoughtful selection of shades and shapes, a Ukrainian designer creates a vibrantly cozy Norwegian apartment.
Ukrainian industrial and interior designer Daria Zinovatnaya has never been one to be afraid of experimenting with color and geometry. Her products, hotels, restaurants, and apartment interiors are often dynamic compositions that bring to mind the paintings of Piet Mondrian or Wassily Kandinsky, with a good of measure of Memphis-style quirkiness.
Naturally, the 807-square-foot apartment she recently designed for a client in Oslo, Norway, is no exception. Due to the home’s compact size and unusual layout, Zinovatnaya decided to split the space into three zones.
Now, the living, dining, and kitchen areas are located in the first zone, a master bedroom and bathroom occupy the second zone, and a guest bedroom and bathroom are contained within the third.
The aesthetics for the apartment were inspired by French-Swiss architect Le Corbusier, and the home has been dubbed CORB as a tribute.
“The inspiration came to me when I studied the work of Le Corbusier,” Zinovatnaya explains, as she had studied works of the acclaimed designer during the year she worked on the apartment. “Playing with colors and shapes resulted in a very unique and graphic space,” she adds.
