The Bialik Collection is a commissioned set of furniture developed for the owners of a refurbished, listed house in Tel Aviv. Built in the 1920′s as an Eclectic Style building, the house was externally renovated to preserve the original elevations design. However, the internal spaces were mostly designed as modern ones.The furniture set was designed to meet the clients’ needs for a dressing room while mirroring the neat and airy feel of the room. One of the room’s most distinct features is the original floor tiles which were preserved as a ‘carpet’ within a dark cast concrete floor. Hence, the furniture colour compliment the tiles while suggesting a neutral, yet playful atmosphere.”>>>”
Alongside the dressing unit, a bespoke daybed was design and made to meet the client’s specifications using the exact same materials. The upholstered mattress’ seams create a grid which follows the vertical lines of the steel frame to create an asymmetrical pattern.
Along the room’s walls four low shelving units were designed to function as benches, providing open storage space with maximum transparency. Made of dark stained white oak, the shelves are supported by dark concrete bases which merge into the concrete floor.
