Ukrainian designer and 3d artist Serge Somkin creates mostly personal projects. On the one hand, they help him relax and, on the other hand, they keep his creative mind in shape. Semkin sees his projects as a personal shelter. His latest project, Serenity, is one of them.
Serenity, designed by Serge Somkin, stems from the space in which it is located. The flat, located in the historic district, has large windows that emphasise the lightness of the space. These feelings of light and calm flow from room to room throughout the project and serve as the foundation of Serenity. Somkin used a soothing colour palette with black accents. He also introduced complex combinations of materials, such as the rough touch of ceramic flooring, the gentle movement of the airy curtains under the ceiling and the travertine surfaces combined with textured paint. These combinations are the common thread throughout the project.
The furniture is on the verge of brutality.
The furniture is on the verge of being brutal, but because of the spaciousness it does not look compressed. By contrasting the furniture with delicate and even historical details, such as wall lights or stucco on the ceiling, the space comes alive. The Ukrainian designer tried to create a project where all aspects fit perfectly, where there is nothing to add and nothing to take out. It is both a place to sink into your own thoughts and a place for cheerful conversations with friends and family. Finally, if we have to describe Serenity in one sentence, it is a project where you live in every corner of the interior in the heart of the old city.
