Product description

Storage is a complete programme designed to be functional and practical. It is able to hold and show different items by changing from cupboard to walk-in closet. It can efface itself in small rooms and in the meantime it helps creating original living sets in large rooms. The unobtrusive and elegant hinged, folding, pullout sliding and sliding doors hide Mongoi equipped insides, a suggestive and emotional finish in contrast to the contemporary imperturbability of external white surfaces. The rich Mongoi outfitting liven the walk-in closet with its basic frame held up by bright aluminium drafts. Storage gets through every dimension barrier and it satisfies every organizational and stylistic need by its new concept. In 2007 Storage is enriched by 3 new closing possibilities: the new coplanar electric leaves, which make the opening movement even handier and quicker; the new leaves in transparent glass enclosed in a thin iron profile. The latter are a practical protection, enabling, at one and the same time, a perfect view of the interior, sought after by those who prefer the open wardrobe and the walk-in closet types. Finally there is the new combination with the Porro partitions, used to create a protective screen which hides the most secret and private part of the house - he one set aside for the wardrobe, bestowing the living areas with new dynamics and multi-level articulation.

Concept

Offering three different types of wardrobe structures, Storage is the first sectional system that creates continuity of space in the whole wardrobe. The innovation arises from the new concept of the bearing structure: the side. Up to now considered and thought as a simple divider of a wardrobe, in Storage’s view the side is no longer a barrier, but rather the element that enables aerial continuity inside the wardrobe, while still performing brilliantly its function of bearing element of the structure and support for the horizontal elements. Inside the wardrobe the very concept of space takes on a new value. Thanks to the three different types of structure, open or closed spaces may be created and then combined and matched perfectly. With Storage it is possible to create many different arrangements - linear wardrobes, corner wardrobes, walk-in closets with or without doors - which meet the different needs of design. Storage is free but also organized: the wide range of units, the different opening systems (doors may be hinged, sliding and pull-out sliding) that may be combined whatever the type of structure, the various types of interior equipment: all these elements make Storage not only an innovative, but also a complete system, ensuring versatility of design along with an uniform image for the whole system.
