A Norwegian client of mine asked me to design a very comfortable residential interior and it had to feel really cold like being in an iceberg, but of course it had to feel like a home. This was a really challenging task as they are opposites!

I thought about it for a while and when I came up with an idea, I had a lot of fun:  from metallic hints on the walls from a Marmorino and ice effect, Murano glass chandeliers, Bisazza white gold mosaic, quilted elegant super white sofas and a Damien Hirst work of art with over 3000 blue, grey and white butterflies.
