We design spaces for real people to live in. The teak wood gives just enough warmth without accentuating on a color so that it can be customized by the favorite colors and elements of the inhabitants and their design preferences. We love that the mirror is rounded, offsetting the cube like structures of the rest of the room for a balance between linear and circular. The Rubik vanity serves as an epicenter to the room, where we’d draw on the teak cabinet facade as a form of warmth and personalization to an otherwise masculine and stark outline. This piece of cabinetry was our way of transitioning the total mod with the slightly eclectic.
Living in NY relies on compact storage and Rubik delivers that for our clients. We specifically opted for a side to side vessel orientation as a topper, so that its as minimal and decluttered as possible, but beneath the front panel lies a whole lot of storage space designed for urban living and we love that. Notice the built completely custom open shelving that perfectly complements the teak wood finish. Lining the wallspace, it continues the Rubik architecture in the form of sensibly spaced storage compartments.
