Fashion designer Thierry Mugler explained the minimalism of his Paris apartment this way:
‘There must be room for the human body to move. I don’t want real possesion. What I need and what I wanted in this apartment was its space - and to keep it as empty as possible.’
By playing with contrasts and not with objects and by placing everything very low - such as the symbolic frescoes by paointer Keso Dekker situated at eye level - he has managed tokeep a maximum of space free to be filled with light. ‘That is my second reason for living here,’ he said, ‘the incredible luminosity of these three rooms.’ His study is striped down to the bare essentials, a threshold table and a high-tech stool facing a wall full of pinned mementos, invitations, bill, and photographs.
A key to this private world is his bedroom. There, nothing interrupts the flow of light, nothing attracts the attention of eyes in need of interior inspiration. As a matter of fact, the room’s only furniture is a king-size mattress on a very low plywood stretcher. "This is all one needs in a bedroom" the designer said. via keehnankonyha
