An Industrial Apartment Dating from 1961

By • Apr 24, 2017

This apartment, dating back to 1961, was designed by SuperLimão. In it, we can appreciate an industrial style predominant in the decoration, and in which we can see, among other things, how the steel pipes containing the electrical installations are exposed and are part of the décor.

The combination of concrete walls and ceiling with granite floors reminds us of the original era of this apartment. There are many details in its décor that tell its story. Some of these include retro corded phones and vintage radios.

In the kitchen, colorful and striking furniture in a very retro style complete the space. When we see it, we get the sensation that we are traveling back in time. The cabinets are done in a very showy green, and topped with a countertop in black.

The top cabinets are composed of small cubes in various colors placed asymmetrically. These small cubes hold kitchen accessories, and serve the double function of storage and decoration.

In the bedroom, done in neutral colors, we can see a combination of blues and grays in the textiles used. On its walls, we can see steel pipes that cover cables that conduct electricity and give the decoration a very charming industrial touch.
