The Savy is a modern medicine cabinet by Studio Kreder.
It is located in an equally modern loft space (16th floor down), in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood.
The Savy by Studio Kreder:
“Horacek Savy is a young, up-and-coming French design firm. New York City’s first artistic director, interior designer, was looking for a design that would reflect her vision for the space (little touches, a little flair, and above all, a functional layout).
With the goal of producing striking art, the design team worked closely with Studio Kreder to develop a functional layout. Included in the design process was a layout decision that emphasized the ability to exercise the eye in verticality – hence the bold use of suspended concrete forms in the mezzanine, the repeated use of straight line of stairs, thus symbolizing the spatial hierarchy.
Suspended concrete was chosen as a primary material because of its ability to reflect the dramaticity of its direct impact against the verticality of the exposed brick wall, which is reflected in the painterly border of the base—also a nod to the importance of the visual element that is art.”
