Modern greats

1508 London – Project Reuben – South Bank Tower, London, UK

1508 London presents this stunning 36th floor show apartment in one of Londonís most anticipated new developments, Southbank Tower. The imposing glass-clad landmark was originally designed in the post-modern era by renowned architect, Richard Seifert, and has been extended and reimagined by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF). Design classics such Jacobsenís Drop chairs and Bertoiaís Diamond chair are set against a rich palette of emerald greens and vintage brass, contrasted with natural linens. Modern greats such as Dedarís Margaritas fabric, Tom Dixon lighting and photographic prints by the up-and-coming French artist, Noťmie Goudal, add a contemporary touch. 1508ís design team also commissioned one-off pieces to seamlessly link the old and the new. For example, the bespoke rug, which was designed by 1508 and made by The Rug Company, was inspired by original 1950s artworks, many of which had a celestial theme influenced by The Space Race. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the apartment give uninterrupted views over Londonís iconic skyline, while a specially designed, three-meter black honed marble fireplace provides a statement internal focal point.

 

Reuben, Southbank Tower, was designed by 1508 London and completed in August 2016.
