A Boy's Inspiration

Inspired by his favorite superheroes — Spider-Man, Captain America and Superman — Mino Kon had his bedroom remodeled into a multipurpose activity and sleeping space packed with his favorite color, red. Use red as an accent color, because it can become overpowering. In Mino's room, red was used sparingly, allowing the room to be balanced yet still energetic.

Extra Lounge Space

Prior to the room remodel, there was no space for Mino to lounge around with friends, mostly due to his old loft bed, which created wasted space above and below it. Thanks to his new loft bed, there's plenty of space below to play or sit and visit with friends. The fire engine-red boucle upholstery of his swivel chairs instantly made the sculptural seating the star of the show.

Mino's Secret Hiding Spot

Known for its ability to radiate warmth, red was the color of choice for bedding in the sleeping area of Mino's new loft bed. Mino says: "You don't even know it's red until you get up here. From the floor it all looks blue and white. It's like a secret hiding spot; you only see the red if I invite you up."

A Step Ladder and Room Divider

Mino's room is only 8 feet by 9 feet, so it was important to stick with furniture that wouldn't make it feel cramped or closed in. To integrate steps into his loft bed architecturally and allow the abundant natural light to stream inside the lounge space below, seven capsule shapes were cut out for Mino's tiny feet and spaced close together. This not only allows for him to climb swiftly and safely, but it also acts as a room divider between the lounge space and the homework area.
