At Home with Marina Abramovic

Marina Abramovic, the most famous pioneer of performance art of our century, unveils her 300 sqm loft in Soho, New York, she moved to the capital of art after having left her XVII century house in Amsterdam, where she has been living for 35 years. The style is minimalistic, almost religious, in order to reflect the temporary concept of living, and also her meditative and yoga habits of the owner. The furniture pieces are from the most from the Italian brand Moroso, while all the lighting is by Artemide. Some elements are designed by Marina’s former husband and artist Paolo Canevari, such as the white coffee table (pic below) and the table in light wood in front of the kitchen, which matches some really rare chairs by the Italian designer Giò Ponti. The green chosen for the kitchen reminds to the vital energy of the nature, which is necessary to deal with the urbane jungle of the Big Apple. We can just say this is a dream home for the lovers of megalopolis.
