The modern side of the idyllic Zurich

Set alongside a beautiful lake and framed by the gorgeous Alpine mountains, Zurich is a city that seamlessly blends a bucolic atmosphere with modernity and luxury to create beautiful and functional spaces. An ethos that is reflected in the home of local gallery owner Jacob, who has designed a sophisticated interior that combines his love for modern art and hosting friends.

Jacob's dream home

Zürich apartment with Franke Products

As a lover of unique contemporary art, Jacob desired a minimalistic living space that allowed his collection to shine. Smooth gray, black finishes, and reflective stainless-steel accents contrast beautifully to create rooms with depth and interest, without drawing too much focus.

"This space is a reflection of my personality, culture, and life journey."


Art Curator and Gallerist

In this penthouse looking over the lake, the kitchen is the focal point and essence of the home. Some of the best pieces of our Mythos family range enable Jacob to wow his guests’ palates with incredible home-cooked canapés and a glass of French wine, while admiring his art collection. In fact, the ceiling hood, integrated oven, and hob also ensure that the home's clean lines are maintained throughout the space. A feature that was essential to Jacob's sharp curator eye.

Savoring art and architecture

Home to numerous pioneering art galleries and museums, Zurich is without a doubt Switzerland's cultural center. The city's thriving artistic community draws inspiration from its medieval cobbled streets as much as the nature and industry that surrounds it. Giving residents endless creative possibilities to design beautiful, elevated spaces.
