Bespoke Design Concept Inspired by Catwalk Trends: The Residences Kuala Lumpur
The Residences Kuala Lumpur by Blu Water Studio introduce you to the haute couture of sanctuary – high fashion inspired new living trends from the most prestigious catwalks. Representing the new designers generation, the unconventional style of Heider Ackermann is perfectly reflected in the smaller apartment (Type A-first photos of the post). According to his fashion shows the vibrant colors were complemented with subtle and monochrome hues.
The soothing shades of gray were chosen to interact with the abundant exposure of turquoise and yellow. Tinted mirrors intensify the colour impression and double the sense of spaciousness. The inspiration from the silhouette of Ackerman’s clothes determines the vertically cut walls, which elongate the height of the space. Although the living area was very limited, transparent tables and chairs help to open it up. The countless reflections from the soft shaped metallic pendants completed the definitive style. The final touch comes from the sculptural yellow armchair inspired by the diagonal lines of masculine Ackermann design.
The timelessness of Dior defined the vision of the larger apartment (Type B). The spirit of the French designer is expressed both with silhouettes and hues. Feminine chicness influenced the shapes and textures. Beloved women’s pleats, highlighted in the 2012 spring-summer collection, were translated from the catwalk to the apartment as the feature design motif. Pleat-like focal wall in the living area, although made of vinyl timber, took the basic inspiration from the fabric’s flexibility. The layering inspired design throughout the apartment was used to create the touch of mystery, which accurate characterizes the fair sex.
To highlight the organic touches, monochrome colors with the dominant black were juxtaposed with vibrant green and powerful magenta. In line with Dior’s principle, as he is quoted to say, “I have designed flower women”, the bloom chair stands out in the center of living space. This high designer piece in the shape of over-sized green flower adds a subtle textural feel to the interior and plays together with the richness of the carpet.
