Concept

Continuing his reflections on the containing theme, the designer has created CASES, proposing a new concept of versatile, multifunctional sideboard.
Perfect to be positioned along a wall or in the centre of a room, Cases is a rigorous piece of furniture, characterised by a light appeal thanks to the play of solids and voids given by the use of two different thicknesses and three different heights: the body in heat-treated oak, the cupboard doors of a smaller thickness, and the top, at a lower level, enclosed by a wooden frame like an elegant tray. The combination strongly distinguishes Cases, creating a three-dimensional aspect that determines its airy appearance.
The body, which lay on titanium-coloured legs that nod to the 60s, is available in two sizes (183xh.97cm and 243xh.69cm) and can hold three or four container elements respectively, each with its own specific function: sideboard, set of drawers, display cabinet, and bar cabinet. These elements enhance and personalise Cases, creating 5 possible compositions and therefore making it suitable for various rooms of the house, from the dining room to the living room and the bedrooms.
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 which, when turned upside-down, becomes a display case for your most treasured items.
The top of the sideboard is available in backpainted 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 transparent 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.
