B Studio, Palermo

B Studio Palermo

The good use of space and light, together with the lightness of Italian equipment, enhance the classic existing spaciality. Light-filled interior with flat translucent roller screens that provide privacy while not completely blocking the view. The accurate resolution of the space and the materials selected, create a blend of descrete elegance; scenic, precise and very functional. The color palette is restricted. White flooded the walls and the equipment, with hints of aluminum. On the original oak floor, rests a hand woven silk Tibetan rug.

In the foreground, simplicity of lines and functionality at the oval conference ‘Shine’ table and “Silver” chairs, design Vico Magistretti for e DePadova. On the table, Marie Claude Berard glasses, a Driade ‘Simon’ silver candleholder, an office set from AG Spalding & Bros New York firm and an absolutely eyecatching “Ipanema Girl” sculpture by Romero Brito. On the “Moby” workstations, design Marco Zanuso for e DePadova, computers Imac Pro and Bose speakers. The lighting is solved through “Surf” Wall scounces, design Neil Poulton for Artemide, and a Flos “Skygarden” suspension lamp. The work of art ¨Landscape map II ¨ of Kirin, enhances the space.

Special attention to the choise of materials and carefull design details, make the maximum of the existing spatiality. A Nespresso Essenza coffee machine lies on the White Thassos marble countertop. The counter provides a convenient extractable plane in matte white lacquer. On the shelves, white porcelain dishes and crystal glasses are carefully arranged.

Simple but elegant solutions even in service areas. On the countertop with integrated sink of White Thassos marble, a white gold plated glass, design Marie Claude Berard with roses, and a pair of Belgian linen towels with Swiss organdy details. The Axor fitting, design Philippe Starck for Hansgrohe, dominates the scene. Along the mirror, a wall sconce with “Deco” inspiration illuminates the restroom.
