LIFE
Year:
1975
Description:

Boiserie system featuring light and dark, empty and full, volumes and horizontal lines. Small instances of architecture that carve out space to create a harmonious balance between form and function. Hanging containers alternate with empty spaces, slightly underlined by shelves, to satisfy the very latest needs of a contemporary lifestyle: to put away, to rest, to hang and to showcase. Lights, cleverly inserted between the units and the wainscoting, to evidence the contrast between the volumes, to provide extra value for the functions, to highlight the objects.
