The world of kitchen cabinets has evolved into one of high drama, where fashionably curved, sculpted and organic shapes set the stage. And some are absolutely awe inspiring, like the modular designs created by Boxetti (www.boxetti.com). Designed to use every inch of space, and therefore perfect in small apartments, but equally stunning in grander spaces, these compact units with expandable shelves and drawers not only define the new age of cutting-edge designers, but also the future
Surprise and discovery of 100% Design for visitors from the Latvian, in their own homes so far for this company almost nothing had been heard. Boxetti Collections author Roland Landsbergis. He has so far been known as a shop, exhibition stand design and study author and manufacturer. Collection includes furniture for bedroom, kitchen and working area. They have shelves and various functions of plant systems, which separate parts are the console extensible, or jump-off, the rest of the time maintaining the impression of a monolithic block, a functional fulfillment cannot even guess.
Boxetti collection is driven by three basic principles – functionality, advanced Technologies and contemporary aesthetics of minimalism. Each of Boxetti modules has been designed to achieve maximum efficiency, functionality and stability. The capability of the Modules to be transformed into compactly solid blocks is essential for the design concept in order to obtain an unobstructed and comfortable space – free of uselessness. Boxetti collection is a handmade product – the quality of materials as well as structural and technological solutions endues the collection to the extent of exclusiveness.
This is a product from the company EL Studija – this is a transforming collection of Furniture. Each Block of the collection is available separately. Collections modular design provides for the installation of loft or openspace principles organized spaces, so they can be placed in both Free-standing, and connect with each other.
The Boxetti stand at 100% Design London, the contemporary Interiors & architectural exhibition grabbed my attention. Despite the Italian sounding name and styling, these hi-tech “transformer” pieces of furniture are designed and manufactured in Latvia. These “boxes” or modules are transformed by the touch of a remote control button, into a bar complete with retractable stool or audio visual system. I love the high gloss white finish and bright orange of the exposed, functional elements.The brand, marketing and design quality of the finished products are well executed, eye catching and effective. Well done, I’m very impressed.
