Living Box for Molteni&C

2022

Living Box was conceived as an independent item of furniture, usable in any room of the house, but mainly suitable for the living room. Despite its reduced size, it retains the rigor and monumentality of the building it derives from, accentuating its details by means of quality materials. Living Box is a low, but large (230, 280, 330, 380) doorless rectangular container, in which the outside and inside contrast with each other via the use of different materials. The top features marble and different woods, specially arranged to decorate the surface. The whole is enclosed within an iris and pewter frame, threadlike if seen from above, but forming a thick profile surrounding the inside space if seen from the front. The top can be fitted and integrated with trunking, useful for facilitating connections of any kind between multimedia equipment, TVs or lighting equipment. The rest of the top can be left free or used to display artistic or personal ornaments.

The inside space recalls a “magical cave” and features numerous surprises. The woods used, including Eucalyptus and the new Sunrise Oak finish, are the facing materials used, and which completely envelop and mark the perimeter. Sunrise Oak is like the revisitation of a classic theme reinterpreted with a contemporary taste, without excluding accents of warmth and tactile softness. The new finish, featuring a very light shade skillfully achieved by our expert cabinet makers, is further enhanced by the particular way in which the wood is irregularly brushed according to a time honored process reinvented in a modern key.
