20/11 SPECIAL | STORAGE CABINETS
A piece of furniture that never goes out of fashion
A classic of the living room furniture that, over time, has been revisited and interpreted by designers and architects. Fratelli Boffi offers in its catalogue a selection of storage cabinets that seem to cross ages and styles with the unmistakable eclectic character that distinguishes the company.
D/Vision – design Ferruccio Laviani
For the collection D/Vision, Ferruccio Laviani implements a process of decomposition and separation, on different levels. Starting from the trumeau – a fashionable item back in the 1950’s – Laviani redesigns its outline, making it an unexpected, surprising object, while still unveiling its original shape. The collection is made up of three versions: D/Vision .0, D/Vision .1, D/Vision .2.
Cafè Creme – design Marc Krusin
Cafè Crème is a precious wardrobe by the British designer Marc Krusin. The structure of the unit is made up of four parallelepipeds of various sizes arranged in space vertically and horizontally, intersecting at different heights. The frame of each of the constituent parts emerges from within, giving rise to a lively effect of volumes and thicknesses. The cabinet is veneered in oak, giving an intentionally retro air.
Potters – design Fratelli Boffi Studio
The Potters high container unit, disgned by Fratelli Boffi is a storage unit with a squared off shape composed of a case in coal stained ash supported by a square tubular metal base with a burnished brass finish. The unusual aspect of Potters is the treatment of the wood, inspired by the container units by Jean Michel Frank and produced with the latest digitally controlled machines. This unusual treatment results in an extremely natural tortoiseshell surface.
F* Buffet – design Ferruccio Laviani
F* Buffet is composed of a hand-carved base finished with aged gold leaf. The floral decorations, the curls and shells immediately recall the Baroque style, but the geometry of the upper unity is juxtaposed to the grandiosity of these wooden lines. This enhances the richness in the material, bronzed glass, on which an eccentric anthropomorphic handle with bronzed finish rests recalling a gecko.
Lui6 – design Philippe Bestenheider
Lui 6/B by Philippe Bestenheider is part of a collection of storage furniture and bookcases that resembles a double-face beehive composed of open and closed boxes, ideal both as a container itself or as a separating wall, demonstrating its versatility and multifunctional use.
