How do you mix elements of the old and new to form a timeless space? For Mr Shopper Studio, the kitchen is a place of harmony and play where form and function meet to serve the needs of the user.
When they were tasked to design a kitchen in collaboration with German home appliances brand Gaggenau, senior designers Sean Hafiz and Rachael See of Mr Shopper Studio decided to blend old-world influences with contemporary design by combining Moroccan elements with seafaring details. Their design scheme is thus a play of texture, colour and light to delineate a stage-like set where the open kitchen takes centre stage.
A rooftop pool located above the kitchen creates a playful distortion of sunlight, creating a delightful sense of being underwater. The designers continue the aquatic theme by introducing a handmade seashell mosaic on the kitchen island. Throughout, a series of Moorish arched doorways with lattice detailing creates a sense of luxury and drama. In the backdrop, the cabinets finished in royal blue complete the look, while housing a number of sleek appliances including refrigerators, ovens and wine coolers.
