Of course, this is not a surprise, considering the home’s occupants: Anke Summerhill, the Creative Director of Minotti London, and her husband John Summerhill, MD of Minotti London. They renovated the apartment to create open space and rooms that flow into one another while taking advantage of original assets like the existing brick walls and exposed beams.

The living space features a circular white marble table underneath a contemporary descendant of retro sphere lighting: Atomic suspension lamp by DelightFULL. The lamp is a spot-on interpretation of the atomic age design and it’s ideal to be placed in a modern living room.
