Living mixed with a more toil-related dimension

The interior design project designed by Festen Architecture for an apartment just around the corner from Place de la Republique has all the appeal of a New York loft:  its spaces are smooth, sleek and sophisticated, with settings separated only where necessary, and high ceilings embellished by existing steel structural features. The large rectangular windows are characterised by the typical iron fixtures dating back to early 20th Century factories. The overall effect is one of a home where living is mixed with a more toil-related dimension, and all the elements give a pleasant harmony.

The fluidity

The kitchen, made by Abimis, in fact mirrors the owners’ desire to have a professional kitchen.

The steel, which identifies all the products tailor made by Abimis, lends this solution a sculptural dimension along with sophisticated uniformity.

The kitchen chosen is the Ego model by Abimis: a blend of elegance, innovation and ergonomic design, with a clean- cut silhouette thanks to the bevelled flush doors fully integrated into the structure and the latest-generation hinging pivot – patented by Abimis.

The large island: style and personality

A large island, fitted with an induction hob and an oven, overlooks the living room without generating any discontinuity: it is a convenient worktop to use for cooking or to enjoy a drink with friends.

The sink that define the layout

Beneath the long window, a second block houses the sink, and a larder unit rests against the wall to complete the layout of the kitchen, which recalls the charm of professional settings with its vibrant metal hues.


Abimis solutions perfectly reflect the original concept for which they were conceived: a professional-grade product devised for domestic settings that is both functional and designer.
