Clockwork for EXTO | 2018

A cabinet where its metal fixtures are the protagonists

CLOCKWORK is a family of sideboards that celebrates some of the functional elements that are used to build and open container furniture and that are usually invisible because they are hidden on purpose.
We have enlarged hinges and locks, emphasizing and enhancing them to the status of jewels which further decorate and embellish the container.

The impeccable perfection of these handcrafted small components, the attention to detail and the precious metals used for the finishes (like copper and brass) make these elements unique and precious pieces.
CLOCKWORK’s handle is inspired by the mechanisms of fine timepieces and makes the opening and closing movement almost playful. Even the hinges are exhibited as external piercings that accompany the rotation of the doors with their form.

In this project that celebrates mechanics, the aesthetic and functional aspects blend harmoniously.
As an alternative to the refined surface of the natural American walnut, a semi-gloss handmade patinated coating was chosen – perfected especially for the project – which recalls fine Chinese lacquer. The internal LED lighting enhances the shelves covered in leather with elegant visible stitching. A piece of furniture that becomes the true protagonist of every interior.

Sideboard in Canaletto walnut, with structural elements and a decorative handle that can be in brass with gold finish, in polished nickel or in bronze.
The interiors, with integrated LED lighting, can be in leather or finished with opaque lacquers. On the outside, the solid wood can be natural or finished with a semi-gloss handmade patina coating.
