A former cinema dating from the art deco period located in a residential and commercial building in Basel is transformed into a living space, the interior of which is decorated with a collection of historical furnishings and art objects. The fusion of contemporary and historical creates a fascinating synthesis of the arts. While this unique space was being created, a repurposed old forge in nearby Ziefen was used as a countryside retreat. ‘Living Wunderkammer’ presents a detailed look at these two residences. Considered modern cabinets of curiosities, both are marked by the personality of their passionate owner-collector, whose surroundings are a continuous journey through time.
