In an effort to accentuate the art collection, Atelier MKD founder Marika Dru opted for an architectural design characterised by its understated, refined style, featuring materials in contrasting grey tones. This monochromatic approach harmoniously complements the apartment’s Parisian decor.
Favouring contrasting materials such as marble and wood, Marika Dru enriches simple materials through graphic and modern ornament. A desire for stylistic coherence means that she is sometimes guided by a single striking object when considering the layout of an interior. With Place Iena, Michel Boyer’s stainless steel X stool led her to use a selection of striking pieces in metal.
The project at its core focuses on modularity, emphasising flexibility in spatial arrangement, volumes and lighting, transforming the apartment into a gallery-like space tailored to the art collector’s unique needs.
