Claesson Koivisto Rune created a bright and contemporary interior that reference several design periods at this 250-year-old Bergen’s Villa Terminus Hotel in Norway. Get inside this project and travel by the history of design!
Inspired by the 60’s sci-ﬁ aesthetics, Armstrongarc lamp is a true Italian design classic. It has a minimalistic style with a clear usability. So simple and yet a statement of good taste. Perfect for a mid-century setting like this one.
“The mix-up of time fitted us well since we were neither recreating the antiquarian nor building a contemporary statement,” said the studio.
“By choosing elements of furniture, fittings and colors from different eras – an ancient finish, a mid-century modern vintage accessory here, a contemporary piece of furniture there – the concept of time has surprisingly vanished,” continued Koivisto.
“The reason for choosing a number of interior pieces from the mid-19th century was because it was the last period when the handcrafted was strong in Scandinavia,” added.
Claesson Koivisto Rune set out to recreate an “air of tranquility and clear soft light that was quintessentially Scandinavian”.
