Axial Symphony by Design Systems Ltd:
“We generally pursue a living environment that gives a warm, comfortable, and tranquil air. Our designers believe this could be attained through the creation of a symmetrical space, leading people to a mental equilibrium status. Hence, manipulating axes is the point of departure of the design. In each functional space, furniture and fixtures are located on an axis projected from the most important spatial elements of that particular zone. Such arrangement keeps the inhabitant, physically and visually, always oriented to the centre of the various spaces. Consequently, he/she is always the epicenter of a space.
For example, the basin and the door at the bathroom are arranged on the same axis so that the basin is centered to the inhabitant once entering it. The landscape at the garden is on the same axis with the window and sofas of the living room, which always frame and center the landscape in the window from the inhabitants’ view while sitting on the sofas.
A home is not just a place where we enjoy life, but also experience life. Thus, the interior intends to express unique individuality apart from harmonious uniformity and constructive simplicity, composing comfort in order.”
