Pab

Studio Kairos

Living area storage units

Description

Pab is a wall system arising from a complex design involving materials and technologies. The project revolves around the concept of shelf, designed based on a very simple idea: that of a sheet folded in half and restrained by light ties, for use as a bookshelf and top. Through clever engineering and high quality materials, the resulting sense of lightness actually hides a very robust system. The concept of the storage unit has thus been developed, using the shelf to create a contemporary design based on aesthetic simplicity, practicality, accessibility and quality details. Besides the shelves, however, Pab also offers a series of traditional units meeting specific storage needs, as well as multi-purpose benches which can also be fitted with drawers. The vast choice of finishes and hues, along with the variety of furnishing elements, make it possible to obtain countless personalised configurations and solutions.

Concept

The shelf, the base element, is the result of a complex design involving materials and technologies. Its design comes from a very simple idea: a sheet folded in half and held with light tie cords. This lightness actually hides a very robust system, thanks to the clever engineering and high quality materials.

The storage unit was built to use the shelf element to create a coherent relationship of contemporary communication that can be summarised in aesthetic simplicity, practicality, accessibility and quality details.

The finishes are also an important element that, if combined differently, transform the spirit of the system - even though its aesthetic characteristics remain unchanged. The vast selection of finishes and colours, along with the variety of elements, allow a number of very personal and custom solutions.

Studio Kairos

Founded in 1980, Studio Kairos operates mainly in the field of industrial design and development, as well as architecture and furniture. The inspiration of the projects is stated right from the name: in classical Greek Kairos means right point, right place, right time, right measure. In ancient Greece it was also the concept that defined the manner of operating, of designing.

Kairos was, for instance, the choice of the right place for the construction of a house and, at the same time, the waiting for the right moment to do the works; this balanced combination of place and time guaranteed the right measure, the good result. The studio is formed by Giuseppe Manente and Abramo Mion. Giuseppe Manente was born in Mestre (Venice) in 1947. After having attended the higher course of industrial design, he obtained the architecture degree at Venice university. Since 1973 he has been practising architecture, operating in the civil and industrial construction field for public and private institutions. Abramo Mion was born in Mirano (Venice) in 1951. He attended the engineering faculty at Padova University, and then in the architecture faculty of Venice University. He became part of the design staff of a furniture industry and has since then been concerned with interior architecture.

Studio Kairos collaborates with leading companies and institutions and has received many prestigious awards, including the Compasso d'Oro for the Sisamo wardrobe by B&B Italia (1984).
