Project • By Arper SPAPrivate Houses

Villa Wienberg

The intimate Danish summer house, designed by Mette and Martin Wienberg, is a rigorous play of light, material and volume. The design is simple and abstract; the hard lines of concrete and steel are tempered by the warmth of wood, and softened by leather and fur, white curtains, large windows, and soft lighting. The result is a sense of intimacy– a ‘warm cove’, beautiful, functional and cosy, where every family member can find their own space. It is unpretentious and simple, in harmony with tradition. “If you have quiet rooms, the views of the garden look almost like paintings,” Mette says. This portrait of rich minimalism called for very particular furnishings. The chairs would be almost the only true furniture – repeated, in differe... More

Cila

A simple gesture, a sensuous feel. The fluid form of Cila was inspired by the image of layers of cloth enveloping the body.

Arcos

Design by Lievore Altherr, 2017A classical form, repeated. The Arcos collection is a restrained interpretation of Art Deco’s geometric glamor––without the ornamentation.
