Designed with a single man in mind, this modern, black and white apartment in Poznań, Poland was designed by KASIA ORWAT home design. Despite the goal of creating a raw and masculine space, the apartment could work for anyone. The striking contrast between black and white elements is occasionally broken up with bits of yellow and green.

Custom wallpaper was designed to bring a graphic element to the living room while also helping to add a bit of depth to the space. They brought in a gray chair, Armchair RM58 by Vzor, which is a 1950s Polish design with a timeless shape.

The kitchen is 100% custom and they used laminated panels for the surfaces.

The kitchen and dining room are connected. Four Masters chairs by Kartell are used at the table. You also notice that various shades of gray were incorporated balancing out the harshness of all of the black.

The floors are made of light gray resin which is much warmer than if they’d gone with a bright white. There’s even in-floor heating to keep your feet warm.

A glass panel hangs between the shower and the hallway helping to fill the bathroom with light… Or to create a peep show on the other side.
