The desire to create a light, "floating" furniture has led to the lifting up of the volume of the sideboard and the distribution of its weight on four metallic thin linear elements. A 5 cm grid defines the distances between the elements, creating spaces and measures in proportion. The irregular layout marks the separation in five volumes where the materials used are black painted iron for hollow blocks and light-colored oak for the closed ones, alternated in the composition. The monomateric appearance of the wooden blocks is obtained thanks to the 45 ° cut of the sections, to hide the edge thicknesses, and the lack of visible elements for the opening of the doors and drawers, thanks to the push-pull system. The iron parts are joined together by welding.
