Silent elegance

An apartment at Guangzhou becomes an exercise in style in the name of elegance and minimalism. Bearing the signature of Living Divani

Progetto FDL by Living Divani, Guangzhou, Cina

Inspiring calm, reflection, refined elegance. An apartment like a temple of wellbeing, a place to withdraw from the chaos of the world, calibrate one’s sensory emotions and rebuild a feeling of tranquility. Such an atmosphere defines this home, that extends over 500 square metres and has been created by Living Divani in collaboration with FDL, their retailer at Guangzhou. The Italian brand were responsible for furnishing the living room and bedroom, combining their own vision – that consists of a streamlined, understated design that blends comfort with functionality – with an interior design in which the reference to oriental culture and style is clear.

The design of the architecture creates perspective views within the different rooms, lit by generous windows that allow natural daylight to flood the space and illuminate the natural and delicate tones of the setting. The task of creating a play of light and shade within the context is given over to just a few select pieces of furniture  – such as the Menhir coffee tables-sculptures, presented in both the version in marble and the one in wood, placed in the centre of the living room, it provides a practical surface for placing things on. Soft furnishings and accessories are in keeping with the understated palette, creating a sense of harmonious continuity.

As such the imposing Floyd sofa, designed by Piero Lissoni, dominates the living room, showcasing its extreme versatility in terms of modular compositions, and the Extrasoft sofa, adjacent to the kitchen area, creates the perfect corner for relaxation, made inviting by its soft, cappuccino-coloured leather. Moving on to the bedrooms, the aesthetic of the interiors remains consistent and a custom version of Floyd that transforms the classic sofa into a daybed with a decisive and modern style.
