Contemporary sideboard with high legs
A/R is a cabinet that is characterized by its unusual opening system: a hole-handle that opens the door on the opposite side when pulled, creating a surprising effect. The closure, just as soft, is operated by applying slight pressure on the door. The door inclination can be traced back to the ancient technique of “automatic closing” found in Venetian villa doors whereby two slanted hinges operated the doors that closed by gravity.
Structure made from particleboard, melamine-coated and lacquered. The thickness of the structure and shelves is 18 mm, the back panel 10 mm, and the fixed central divider XX mm. Top reinforcing extrusion profile made from powder-coated aluminium. Doors made from a material designed and patented by HORM, composed of a sandwich of wood and fabric 2.2 mm thick, which, thanks to a number of superficial incisions made with a laser cutter, can be folded up like origami. Solid walnut wood door frame. Transparent tempered glass shelves, with polished edge, 5 mm thick. Neodymium magnet protected and hidden by the wood used for the door closure. PVC or felt bumpers. Painted ABS adjustable feet with aluminium finish. Optional base, height 16 cm or 32 cm, made from powder-coated iron.
