For his new home, a São Paulo-based furniture store owner gave the highly experimental French-Brazilian architecture firm Tryptique a blank canvas—well, a dilapidated 3,200-square-foot loft space to be exact. The designers' obvious first response was tearing down partitions. Then, they proceeded to add bespoke features that feed the client's passions for art and collecting. To start, there's a spectacularly sinuous white wall of cubbies that wraps around much of the interior, embedding within it a TV, books, toy cars, and more. And then there are the handpicked art and furniture sprinkled throughout the home, including a leather sofa by noted Brazilian furniture designer Joaquim Tenreiro and an armchair by French architect Jean Prouvé. Tryptique also played up the client's love for concrete, which is seen in everything from the toilet to the dining table.
