Live in a magnificent work of art

It's one thing to have different artworks and a collection of masterpieces at home and another to actually live in one. Visitors will surely be captivated the moment they step into this compact unit—thanks to the interesting shapes and wooden elements that complete the unique space.

Designed by Mattia Paco Rizzi and Jessica Bergstein-Collay of design studio Fabbricabois, what you're seeing is a redesigned Parisian studio apartment. Aside from making sure that it's functional and that the owner can move around freely, the duo took things to the next level by coming up with a geometric sculpture that seem to envelop the place.

Known for creating exceptional wood micro-architecture projects and furniture, Fabbricabois refers to this project as the Mezzacabane. The woodwork not only serves as the apartment's defining feature, it also unifies the different areas of the home—the loft, the bar, and the mini home office.
