A Modern Kitchen Renovation in New York

Boris Dramov and Bonnie Fisher, principals of San Francisco-based ROMA Design Group recently completed a gut renovation for their daughter, Dana Dramov. The 2,500-square-foot live-work space located in Manhattan's Flatiron district boasts a sleek new kitchen, complete with Arclinea cabinets; appliances by Gaggenau, Sub-Zero, and Miele; furniture by Indecasa; granite countertops; and oak floors. Much like the San Francisco renovation by Abigail Turin, this design features an all-black room that contrasts with neighboring bright, white spaces. We here at Dwell are fans of how a simple, yet dramatic, move can make a strong statement.

The Silenci Chair by o4i

With the Silenci chair, Stockholm-based o4i—a design studio that focuses on contemporary domestic and public furniture— wage war against "acoustic clutter." Manufactured by de Nord, Silenci is a classic stackable wooden chair outfitted with a solid wood frame and a soft polyurethane back. Could this remedy the noise pollution in libraries? Prevent sleeping babies from being awoken by chairs that accidently topple over? Provide the ideal furniture for noise-sensitive migraine sufferers? Well, almost. Designed for use in public spaces, these chairs boast their inaudibility, but there's nothing quiet about their design.
