Marta Kovacs and Samuel Borinski, New York (USA)
When Marta Kovacs, a software developer, and Samuel Borinski, a psychotherapist got married and sold their respective apartments to buy this apartment in New York’s Financial District, the question soon arose as to how they would reconcile their individual sensibilities – he is a strict, rational minimalist; she likes to be surrounded by colorful things. The answer – lots of modern storage cabinets that hide clutter behind a crisp façade. The idea came from Borinski, who bought his first USM Haller piece in white, which he refers to as the “Mazerati of filing cabinets,” while working in a clinic straight out of graduate school. For their new home, Marta chose adding bright, upbeat tones of yellow and red USM Haller to exude warmth and life.
