Design by Francesco Rota
Continuing his reflections on the containing theme, the designer has created Cases, a new concept of a versatile, multifunctional sideboard.
Perfect to be positioned along a wall or in the centre of a room, Cases is a durable piece of furniture, characterised by a light appeal thanks to the play of solids and voids.
The body rests on titanium-coloured legs that give a nod to 60s aesthetics and is available in two sizes. It can hold three or four container elements, each with its own specific function: sideboard, set of drawers, display cabinet, and bar cabinet. These elements enhance and personalise CASES, creating five possible compositions. Depending on the chosen version, the cupboard doors can enclose glass shelves or wooden drawers of various heights, while the bar cabinet can be fitted with a bottle rack. For the utmost in customised style, one of the modules can be left empty or be fitted with an elegant glass cube to display your most treasured items.
The top of the sideboard is available in back-painted glass or marble, or in leather with an elegantly stitched border that enhances the handcrafted feel. The bar cabinet can be distinguished with an elegant glass top that reveals and enhances the contents. The product is finished with fine details, including an integrated light inside the cupboard to illuminate the interiors, and the specially-designed Lema hinges that have been left visible like small buttons.
