Adolf Loos Bedroom for Lina Loos

Adolf Loos, österreichischer Architekt, entwarf dieses Schlafzimmer für seine Frau Lina, Wien, 1903

“The white room that Loos designed for Lina, his blonde, blue-eyed,
nineteen-year-old wife, was the most intimate place in the house.
The white walls, the white draperies and the white angora sheepskins created
a sensual and delicate fluidity; every object in the room was white.
Even the closets were concealed behind pale linen drapes.
this was an architecture of silence, of a sentimental and erotic approach.
Its contrast with the more public living spaces attests
to a method of composition that was strictly governed by the psychological
status of each room.”

– Panayotis Tournikiotis, Adolf Loos, Princeton Architectural Press, 2002, p. 36.
