The newly constructed Santa Monica Residence was completed in 2015 and has a mid-century modern inspired design. A strong architectural shape anchored in simplicity. The entire residence features mid-century furniture, the majority designed by Danish mid-century masters such as Finn Juhl, Fabricius & Kastholm and Hans Wegner. The lighting designs are from Danish Modern designers Arne Jacobsen, Fabricius & Kastholm, Verner Panton and Poul Henningsen. Most furniture pieces are handmade in Denmark over the last years to complement the architecture.
Floor to ceiling glass doors pivot onto the back patio.
The Serge Mouille floor lamp is paired with the Fabricius & Kastholm Grasshopper chair in the living room. The custom walnut cabinet is mounted on red cedar siding, which provides a dramatic backdrop for the Eames sofa and a Finn Juhl coffee table of solid walnut.
The Moon pendant in the powder room is one of Verner Panton's earliest luminaires. It consists of ten ring-shaped blades positioned in such a way that they can move. The Moon pendant justifiably gets its name from its shape and the quality of light coming from it. The fan-shaped discs hide the bulb and at the same time serve as reflectors, through which a soft light is spread throughout the room. It is a spherical lamp of white metal with vertical lamellae, arranged like a fan, for individual regulation of the light.
The Poul Henningsen pendant lights the stairwell. A cactus garden runs the length of the front yard and extends into the house.
In 2015 the Fabricius & Kastholm desk bo-555 was manufactured for the Santa Monica Residence. Before that, it hadn't been manufactured for more than two decades.
In 2015, the owner of Bo-Ex in Denmark, made the last Scimitar Chair before closing his factory in 2016. The chair is hand made at the original factory in Denmark with the original tools of the 1960's. To preserve the authenticity and high quality the leather has been shipped from Denmark to Italy where an authentic sewing machine was located to stitch the leather before shipping it back to Denmark to finalize the chair. The name of this rare chair is derived from the Turkish sword.
