Son Serra by BonVivant Concept
Spanish multidisciplinary design studio BonVivant Concept took on the task of reviving an old farmhouse, ‘Son Serra’ on the Balearic island of Mallorca. Historically, these farmhouses included their own chapel, but BonVivant Concept co-founding director Feliu Rullán says Son Serra’s was completely destroyed and unable to be restored. “That’s why we decided to recreate a chapel in this bathroom; a temple of worship to the body and wellbeing,” he says.
BonVivant Concept opted for stone and solid wood sourced from the nearby town of Binissalem, complemented by lime paint and natural brass.“These materials create a palette that evokes the surrounding environment, the Sierra de Tramuntana. The earthy and desaturated colours bring warmth to the space,” co-founding director Victoria Vidal says. Most elements you see in the bathroom are bespoke, namely the mirrors, drawers, bathtub and stone sink. “We had never designed a bathtub before. The execution was far from simple, but we are delighted with the result,” Victoria says.
