Ultimate Bachelorette Pad : Glamorous Black Apartment in NY
Stefan Boublil`s Black Apartment design brings a new dimension to the glamorous lifestyle. The concept was made for a client that needs no introduction: Cindy Gallop from BBH advertising. The brief for this apartment was short and simple: “At night, I want to feel like I`m in a Shanghai nightclub…” And so it is. The locker rooms of the first YMCA in the US became the scene for the designer`s theatrical show. A black-lacquered Chinese box served as inspiration for this aesthetic endeavour. The colours come from over 30 years of collecting different objects from around the world. It all came perfectly together in this ample space, with a network of curtains serving as walls and doors. All objects are identified by the black space that surrounds them, making them pop. The light fixtures provoke shadows to comply to this night club feeling in the middle of New York`s rainbow neighbourhood.
