Canal House Apartment at Herengracht, Amsterdam
By Mokkō

In an art collector’s eclectic canal house apartment in the city center of Amsterdam, we designed and created a contemporary central living room inspired by Japanese aesthetics. The interior is designed for the client to retreat from the busy streets and from his collection of art, books and souvenirs.

Taking a holistic approach, we transformed the room into a warm and serene space, using natural materials including French oak, walnut, rice paper, clay plaster and jute. The interior breaks with Western living room conventions and focuses on natural materials and the beauty of their imperfections. Big French oak wood beams were used as entrance steps, mirroring the concept of stepping stones seen in Japanese zen gardens, intended to create more awareness of the transition from one space to the other.

Other than the soft furnished pieces, every detail of the interior and each piece of furniture and lighting within it, is designed by Mokkō. We commissioned all work to Amsterdam based craftsmen and suppliers in our network. The custom pieces were complemented with furniture crafted in Japan.

We guided and supervised the construction, furniture making and the execution of the project, working closely together with the architect, constructor and the many local craftsmen and (Japanese) suppliers within our network.
