Improvised Syncopation

CHAINS INTERIOR as Architects

A sense of musicality is installed into the living space for the apartment owner with a love for classical music. It transforms notes and rhythm into spatial lines and colours.

Taking the basic idea of improvisation in music as a starting point, the open spaces in the background make wide use of white wall areas. Metallic stripes with irregular spaces between them syncopate the spaces and at the same time encompass them in a repeated manner. This has an effect similar to spontaneous syncopations in musical accompaniment or to the strings of musical instruments. They thus create a spatial atmosphere of calmness and lightness.

 

Movable furniture and the main wall with their characteristic colored areas and patterns convey the main melody of fancy romanticism.Just like the black keys of a piano keyboard, the white wall areas and the black floor as the basic plane of this space stand out. At the same time, they are interwoven and thus form a kind of “Fantasie-Impromptu”.
