The unexpected contemporary projectBoca do Lobo & Denis Košutić brings a display of art crafted with the finest design elements. This appealing synthesis was well anticipated within the world of exclusive furniture and contemporary architecture. Both parties partnered for a celebratory re-creation of a Baroque Austrian Palace, a project of Košutić titled Palais FG. Vienna-based architect and designer Denis Košutić redesigned the interior of the Austrian Palace, providing an history-rich landmark with a modern twist and turning it into a cheerful, exuberant place. CovetED brings you an exclusive look at this incredible project.
The sensation overload this interior designconveys can be overwhelming, like a fine impressionist painting, but as soon as you start joining all the details together, it transposes into a wonderful visual experience. The renewed interior architecture of this palace features a golden wallpaper, pink colourful curtains and exciting bright sofas with some of the iconic pieces. Boca do Lobo’s furniture included one-of-a-kind pieces fusing the past and present while partnering with Kosutic to implement his vision for design, aesthetics and style. An exceptional interior design project that takes a sublime taste and a lot of imagination.
Through prints of gold speckled into polka-dotted patterns, wallpaper plastered by the colour of the Tuscan sun, decorated by blossoming flowers and peasants, art pieces and stunning colour dictates the flamboyancy of the collaboration between the Pixel Cabinet and Eden Center Table. Zebra printed rugs and carpets trace the floors and staircases. The Newton Dining Table table is a mix of small and large original designed pieces. Besides this stunning decoration, sits an espresso-coloured wooden chair. A light bulb forms on the back panel of its seat, leading to a light that generates a neon buzz. These pieces lead a path towards the dazzle and drama that awaits.
In another living room, gold-painted birdcages hang sporadically from the ceiling, while two complementing standing stool tables shine in the same pigment. The regality of the full-length velvet curtains of a variety of colours: cherry red, fuchsia, burgundy and amethyst, brush the stone-cold violet tile in addition to guarding the windows that line the wall. In the centre of the room stands a carriage shaped chair the colour of a bushel of lemons. This piece alone lights up the room as it sits across from a light orange sorbet colour of a similar but smaller design with a gold stool companion. The contrast of colours—orange, black, grey, periwinkle, ecru, sky blue, red and orchid perpetuate in a series of replicating lines on the rug that covers the floor. The sight adds illusion to the room.
In order to create such an eclectic environment, Kosutic approached the Castle by accepting the antiquity that permeated before editing the rooms individually, to fashion idiosyncratic spaces fluid throughout the palace. In further discussing the project, Kosutic shares his philosophy: to reach the core of furniture composition and decorating through the functionalism of product and design. With the collaboration of Boca do Lobo, Denis Kosutic presents Palais FG. Enter the gates to discover an alluring environment that depicts contemporary life through architecture and interior design.
