The architects Tham & Videgård have reinterpreted the typical Swedish little house making a charming and avant-garde family holiday home on a small island near Stockholm. Its striking structure gives way to interiors decorated with furniture of B&B Italy. The mix between nature, tradition and design is most pleasant.
This picturesque house is located on a small hill on the island of Krokholmen, in the outer Stockholm archipelago. It is surrounded by a typical landscape of this archipelago, with dwarf pines whipped by the wind and outcrops of small mountains produced by ice.
In the spacious living room, the height of the ceilings and the large windows that overlook the landscape make the boundaries between interior and exterior blur. The entire house has been decorated with pieces of contemporary design, such as Tufty-Time sofas, design of Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia.
The house has a useful area of 135 m2 and it is made up of open spaces such as the elegant and minimal family dining room, where we can find the Belle chairs and the Bull table, designs of Naoto Fukasawa.
With an intelligent set of literary and stylistic references, the Belle chair by B&B Italia is the delicate and feminine counterpart of the Bull table. With rounded lines and a padded seat with leather upholstery, it reinterprets the detail of the rounded section of the table legs and, as it unfolds downwards, adds a small element of curvature that creates an elegant touch. Towards the top, the legs are attached to the back of the chair with elegant elbow-shaped arms.
For its part, the objective of Naoto Fukasawa's Bull table is to communicate the immediate impression of a very solid but extremely refined object. A stylistic formula that is part of the designer's distinctive language and that, in the case of Bull, uses a subtle structural tension between the elements: the legs with a wide round section, which although slightly inclined seem to be solidly planted on the ground. And in contrast a slim upper that appears to be resting slightly on the frame.
In the house there are corners of reading and relaxation as fascinating as where we can find the Harbor sofa, also design of Naoto Fukasawa, accompanied by Colosseo side tables or her little sister, the Harbor armchair.
The house has terraces with spectacular sea views. To remain enraptured looking at infinity, the Crinoline armchairs, Patricia Urquiola for the Italian firm.
