Sculptural Feature Wall
The central attraction of a large apartment in Istanbul for Zeynep & Emre, designed by Fields Studio is the wall behind its dining area. The wall presents a plane as not just an element that divides or defines space but as an artwork which expresses itself.
Made from CNC-milled polyurethane, it forms the backdrop of the dining area. The dynamic geometry running across the entire plane lends an impression as if the wall is actually a fluid surface, converging in ripples. The wall has been designed to grab immediate attention of anyone who enters the house.
The surface has an illusionary texture. Though the wall is a planar element, the pattern created here gives the impression of a gradual sinuous surface unfolding across the space. Cove lighting at the top further adds to its dynamic presence.
The colour palate used to create this wall is subtle, yet striking . The coolness of the white has been balanced by warm brown tones. This apartment with its impressive interiors illustrates how minor details and finishes contribute towards the making of a space.
