    Default Peter Klasen's house in Grasse


























    Peter Klasen is famous for his original painting technique - geometric abstraction. Every summer the artist lives and works in Grasse. The design of this house built in 1990 was developed by Peter and Christopher Petikollo . The plot is divided into right-angled sections where an ensemble of flat roofed buildings is located. The main house, swimming-pool, workshop and gardener's house together make up an ideal rectangle. It seems as if everything here is based on geometry. Even the daylight, streaming inside through glass fronts leaves rectangular spots on the granite floor. You can say that contrast is the key principle of the interior. Entering the house through modern glass doors you see pillars from Cameroon , Nimbi sculptural masks and Dagon dance masks. Much of the furniture was designed by Klassen's wife - chairs and a coffee table in the living-room, for instance. In the dining-room on can see arm-chairs from Phillip Stark and tables made by Peter Klassen . The first floor is done in Japanese traditions: contrast of white and black, horizontal and vertical lines.


    i like this. a lot. minus the hideous red armchair.

    i like quite a bit of it. he has some great furniture. i really love the natural light that place gets. i am not crazy about the bathroom, though...the vanity seems off to me for some reason.

    Love the red leather chair, but I'm against making your lamps wear the burka. Over all, lots of nice touches, but a little too masculine for me.

    The burka wearing lamp. I can't help but think a pink sparkley one would be prettier.

    Some of it I love, some of it I hate, but I'd definitely live there if I could replace some of the furniture.
