Product description

This drawer unit alludes to the archetypal shape of a vase. Like a modern treasure chest, Pandora was crafted to store - and thus ‘hide’ - all kinds of objects. Multiform in its different versions, from one to six drawers, this piece is versatile enough to be transformed, as you like, into a storage table, bedside table or full chest of drawers, used in varied spaces, from the bathroom to the bedroom or living room. A mysterious, impressive object, Pandora surprises when the drawers, invisible when closed, are revealed. Dimensions:
85x31xh165 cm

Finishes:
DeLabré B stainless steel legs, Brushed copper body.

Concept

Balanced on slender metal legs, the legendary cyclops invades domestic spaces to reinvent home cabinetry. Its large eye becomes a handle and the robust body contrasts with the lightness of the legs in eccentric visual imbalance. Without a doubt, it is a scenic container sure to get noticed: the solid wood structure is richly covered in a copper dress featuring ornamental incisions, rhythmically marking its surface.
