Apartment in Paris by Marcante Testa

It’s raining cats and dogs, but this 150sqm apartment in Paris, Saint Sulpice, 6th arrondissement restorated by the talented Marcante Testa puts me in a good mood with its colours that look like from a spring flower bouquet.

The apartment’s owner is Pascale Revert, Director of the London gallery 50 Golborne, dedicated to contemporary African art and design. Marcante Testa wanted to maximize the space by tearing down the old maze of small rooms with the idea of drawing a new perspective: an ideal tension that would direct our gaze beyond the windows, towards Saint-Sulpice. The place should become a space to live and also a space to display the works of the gallery to Parisian collectors. Materials, shapes, colors and surfaces were put together to be transformed into emotions. Andrea Marcante and Adelaide Testa collaborated with various companies in the field of furniture and materials. One of their most recent projects is called Futuraforma (SEM, Spotti Edizioni Milano), represented here in Paris by Duale table and Magic carpet custom versions.
