Creating a ‘modern classic’ interior sounds like a simple proposition, but requires a level of restraint that can be hard to pull off.
One designer whose work consistently strikes this careful balance is Jean-Pierre Biasol of Melbourne based design studio Biasol. After studying in Europe, Jean-Pierre launched his design studio in Melbourne in 2012. Perhaps best known for their stunning hospitality fit-outs, the studio also create seriously stylish residential interiors.
For Jean-Pierre, creating a modern classic aesthetic is about striving for a sense of timelessness, in order to remain relevant both now and into the future. A big part of his approach, is integrating classic design silhouettes into contemporary, architectural interiors. He’s a fan of heritage Austrian furniture brand Wittmann, whose curvy Vuelta tub chairs by superstar Spanish designer Jaime Hayon lend an element of elegance and comfort to Jean-Pierre’s own workspace, ‘Officina Biasol’ in Cremorne.
