Living area storage units
Ideal for the dining and living areas, the Liagò collection consists of two low storage units with doors and drawers and a tall storage unit with hinged or flap doors. Defined by clear lines and increased thicknesses, these units are inspired by the Venetian architectural element (an outdoor loggia made of wood, often featuring a marble floor) after which they have been named. Just like a building, the 50mm-thick frame of the units hides a functional soul: side and back panels are assembled by means of a “folding” mechanism to create an internal compartment, allowing the passage of electrical cables and other elements. This means that the units can accommodate power supply cables and connections for televisions, monitors, lamps, speakers and other wired devices. Whether placed directly on the floor or raised on steel feet, the Liagò storage units are available in different woods and lacquered in numerous glossy and satin shades, with the marble option for the tops. The interiors are covered with a silky, anti-scratch, anti-fingerprint, matt anthracite material, while the shelves are made of smoked etched glass. The project also includes drawers with an incredibly thin frame and accessories such as pull-out trays in grey Canaletto walnut, guaranteeing additional customisation and versatility. Liagò can be equipped with an internal lighting system and one for the high storage unit’s open compartment. This solution underscores the exceptional elegance of the interiors and allows the objects contained therein to be displayed at best.
“I tried to freeze some architectural elements by imagining these pieces of furniture as if they were pieces of architecture. Platforms, supporting pylons, containing sides, closed spaces – like buildings, and large terraces that open. In this case there are no people but, instead, one can place objects.”
