Inspiration: Sleek Tech Ideas from a Copenhagen Penthouse

Taking the black and white theme to overdrive, the Danish bunch over at NORM architects have created a modern space that's subtle with tech, but heavy on ideas. From recessed lighting, TV mounts, and thoughtful wiring, all of these ideas help contribute to the wire-free organization you see before you now...

A great deal of custom building went into this penthouse. Tearing down substantial parts of the concrete walls and ceilings, a real sense of height is achieved. While they were at it, they used room dividers to separate the bathroom core from the living areas. These dividers all held custom wiring to minimize the amount of exposed wall plugs and wires - hence the perfectly mounted LCD TV against the black core centered in the middle.

"The core was painted in a mat black color to contrast the white walls, floors and ceilings. Underneath the black core we installed hidden lighting to give it a hovering feel and a sense of lightness... All wires were cut in to the walls and the rest of the lighting done with wireless switches and the heating was put into the floors."

Against the back wall, we love the matching black shelving unit that holds the AV receiver and Tivoli radio, masked with mix-matched books that really helps blend it into the design of the room. We could use a few pieces of art on the white walls to give the space a bit of personality, but that's just us.
