Taking his creativity in a new direction, designer (and human companion to cat wonder Choupette) is set to begin a brand new interior design project in Canada. Largerfeld will design two residential lobby spaces inside a condominium complex in Toronto. Called Art Shoppe Lofts + Condos, the development will be located at Yonge Street and will include a 28-storey tower on the north side of the property stepping down to a 12 storey mid-rise building of lofts to the south. ‘Lobbies by Karl Lagerfeld’ will be a feature of both buildings and will also mark Largerfeld’s first project in Canada. The project is a collaboration between Freed Developments and CD Capital Developments.
The complex has a distinctly futuristic feel to it, so according to Peter Freed of Freed Developments, Largerfeld’s aesthetic was the natural choice. ‘We look forward to sharing Karl Lagerfeld’s distinctively ultramodern, highly structured style for the Art Shoppe Lofts + Condos and believe that his premier Canadian condominium design will create spaces that will be valued by our residents, treasured by our City, and appreciated by the world,” said Freed.
What exactly does a lobby designed by Largerfeld entail? The spaces will spaces will supposedly “reflect the designer’s exceptional style and eye for detail, with features, finishes and furnishings.” This probably means that we should expect a black and white color scheme complemented by graphic and linear furniture and décor elements. As long as there are no cat portraits, we’re happy.
