The Photographer

"It is the harmony with the rhythms and elements of nature that makes my home a refuge with an authentic and original soul"

Hidden among the foliage of ancient trees, in the heart of a wild and pristine forest in Norway, stands the house of an important photographer of architecture, nature and landscapes. Characterised by large glass walls that flood the rooms with natural light, the house looks like an oasis of peace in the woods, a refuge from chaos and an ideal starting point for endless walks among birches, pines and crystal-clear lakes, in search of new inspiration and unusual views.

On an architectural level, the scenographic impact of the big windows is counterbalanced by walls in wood and by concrete, natural elements with a strong materiality. On the walls, the most important shots of the Photographer become decorative motifs and interact perfectly with the furnishings: a thoughtful combination of linear and essential pieces with a contemporary design, mid-century inspired armchairs and sofas with refined workmanship that contrast with the simplicity of the architectural elements.

Flooded with light and enveloped by woods, the living area is an open and airy space, based on a warm and neutral colour palette, whose tones are in harmony with the surroundings. In this elegant setting, the Highlander_2.0 modular sofa is joined by two Madison armchairs to create an inviting conversation area. The setting is completed by a combination of different tables: Flair, a piece of furniture with a geometric design and contemporary appeal, Norrebro, a sophisticated composition of shapes and materials, and Moss, a sculptural and seductive side table in metal with bronzed finish.

Even the dining room blends in with the surrounding forest. Here, the main protagonists are the pieces of the Wynwood line, with their essential and clean shapes. The dining table has an imposing structure with important dimensions, softened by the smoked glass panels, which give lightness to the whole. The brown and grey hues that characterise the piece lend it a timeless charm with a metropolitan appeal.

In the bedroom, the space most focused on intimacy and contemplation, the engaging connection with nature is even more evident. In the Highlander bed, the pleating of the headboard is one of the distinctive features and the element that denotes Gianfranco Ferré Home’s design skills. The bed is completed and enhanced by the presence of the Rowe bench, a versatile and original piece with feet recalling the fifties and a special pleated cover with a play of geometries. The thick velvet upholstery accentuates the shapes of the pleats for a striking result.
