Word has reached Fizz HQ that Montreal is about to get a bold design fix courtesy of the legendary Philippe Starck
BY DEE IVA
A striking mix of minimalism and opulent excess, YOO Montreal is the latest luxe development from the surreal world of Philippe Starck. Set in Canada's Future Corridor of Culture in Montreal, it will comprise 96 sleek apartments spread over 20 storeys with views over downtown Griffintown.
In a nod to the area's industrial history, concrete, timber and leather will form the backdrop to a myriad of design features. Think glittering chandeliers, larger than life vases and illuminated heads, all pulled together in Starck's inimitable style. But before you put the key in the door you've got some some work to do too; each apartment will be fitted out in one of three design palettes, Minimal, Nature or Culture, using different finishes and colours. Simply pick a look and the team at Yoo will help you decide every detail to individualise your home.
Meanwhile back in the UK, if you fancy getting your hands on a bit of YOO kit for your home, then check out the new YOO Home collection of furniture, accessories and lighting which features exclusive pieces from an eclectic mix of designers including Brit talents Bethan Gray, Jon Male and Studio Dare.
