This May, Karl Lagerfeld has turned his attentions to interiors with a guest-edited edition of France’s Architectural Digest.

The futuristic apartment is located in the Quai Voltaire in Paris. The Kaiser chose the vanguard of contemporary design, and reinvents the concept of the Parisian artist studio in the terms of the twenty-first century.

Perhaps the most exciting feature of the magazine is a inside peek at Lagerfeld’s apartment. In a recent interview, Lagerfeld mentioned that he has two houses side by side; one for visitors and meetings, and the other completely for himself where no one is permitted to enter – not even his house staff. We can only assume that the apartment featured is his ‘public’ space!

 I WANTED AN APARTMENT WITH GLASS AND TRANSPARENCY EVERYWHERE … AND THERE IS NO COLOR HERE, BECAUSE I AM CONSTANTLY SURROUNDED BY COLOR. I PREFER TO LIVE IN A NEUTRAL ENVIRONMENT.
