If you were wondering how to do mid-century interior in a modern and current way, the SP_Penthouse in Sao Paulo is a very good source of inspiration.
I have had this house bookmarked for a few weeks, basically since it was unveiled as Studio MK27 latest penthouse project in Sao Paolo. This penthouse wins The large corridors lead from one part of the apartment into the other, but also act as galleries for the owner’s art collection. The interior is super cozy, yet modern with a very clear look back into the highlights of interior design’s past. A lot of furniture has been build specifically for the apartment, while you might spot Brazilian, Danish and Italian originals by Hugo França, Hans Wegner, Franco Albini, Gio Ponti among others. Especially the floor-to-ceiling shelf units in the living room sure is impressive and give the apartment, along with the heavy wood-wall-panelling, a very unique look and feel.
