“An apartment of one’s own” Escena by Teklan

Teklan x Sancal

Three points of view coexist in the ideal flat that Teklan has created for Sancal. Her vision as an architect is inseparable from her exquisite vision as a photographer and her sensitivity as an artist. Her style impregnates every project she undertakes, and this collaboration is no exception.

Tekla shares her particular idea of “slow living”, giving shape to a contemporary, eclectic and very personal home. A comfortable environment that, in addition to being inhabited, aspires to become a space to enjoy and show the passions of those who are destined to live in it.

Her inspiration comes from multiple sources. On the one hand, she interprets her Scandinavian heritage from craftsmanship, culture and contemporary art, and proposes a refreshing palette inspired by the nordic landscape, masterfully captured by the Scandinavian expressionists.

She defines three tone-on-tone palettes according to the functions and dimensions of the spaces. “Colour is never absolute, it is always relative, what you put next to it is what defines it”, she assures us.

The finishes add a note of vibrant colour to a selection of furniture that is characterised by the functionality of each of them. Teklan furnishes the living room of this compact apartment with Duo Mini, the coquettish version of Sancal’s classic and adds a casual touch with the playful Link pouf and the fun Faces coffee tables. The kitchen is another space to share around the Pion Fresno table and Body chairs. The small home office is dressed up with the practical Nudo desk and the Tea chair with base of wheels, creating an inspiring corner from which
