CiFi Showflat, China

Shanghai, China

About the project

Ippolito Fleitz designed a show flat that targets strong personalities in both character and colour. The apartment features high-quality specification and an intelligent layout that contrasts open living areas with private ones. A generously proportioned entrance area forms the point of arrival. The striking, monochrome blue tones on the walls in interplay with an over-sized round mirror and a central key depository, stretching from floor to ceiling as a sculptural element, provide a grand welcoming gesture.

Visitors are drawn into a larger space consisting of living, dining and kitchen areas as a single flowing entity. The self-confident, spacious character of the apartment is particularly apparent here in the representative part of the show flat. The guest bedroom, master bedroom and study differ in character. The guest bedroom has a bright, friendly and optimistic atmosphere to ensure that visitors feel as welcome as possible. Recessed elements in a vibrant yellow on the rear wall and ceiling create the illusion of a baldachin stretching up and over the bed. The master bedroom is dark and elegant in design, featuring structural textures on the walls and in the adjoining bathroom. The most striking element in the bedroom is a black, mirrored wardrobe, which serves to expand the master suite by providing additional spatial depth. The study is executed in a striking orange and conveys a completely different energy – it animates, stimulates and invites you to linger on. The seating niche in the study offers an ideal place to take time out and daydream. The living area resembles an expansive stage set. A white, terrazzo-tiled floor and a white vertical lamellae forms the canvas for statement pieces of furniture. Flamboyant pendant luminaires add optical highlights.

The kitchen with its tall cabinets and long stainless steel island counter captivate and convey luxury appeal through high-spec, textured stone surfaces. Colourful paintings by contemporary artists reflect the taste of a young, urban target group that aspires towards self realisation in the form of a perfectly curated lifestyle.
