Karl Lagerfeld took photos of his Parisian apartment which is probably one of the most futuristic spaces I have come across. At first I thought it was a series of 3D images. I love the way Legerfeld thinks, but this time I felt the design was too cold to live in.
In the photo above, retractable glass walls reveal part of the huge collection of books by Karl Lagerfeld (estimated at around 40 000) .
“I WANTED AN APARTMENT WITH GLASS AND TRANSPARENCY EVERYWHERE …AND THERE IS NO COLOR HERE, BECAUSE I AM CONSTANTLY SURROUNDED BY COLOR. I PREFER TO LIVE IN A NEUTRAL ENVIRONMENT.”
