‘Container’ sideboard by Alain Gilles for Casamania
‘Container’ is a modular sideboard system by Belgian designer Alain Gilles for Italian manufacturer Casamania. As if a regular sideboard had been split into different elements, different “containers”. It is really a research on deconstruction and reconstruction. As if a ‘standard’ sideboard with its different storage functionalities had been split into various elements just to be reconstructed in a different, uneven manner.
A research on the architecture of a piece in order to bring forward its construction logic. In a way, a ‘landing dock’, the base, and a few “containers” that can be set one on top of the other… hens its name.
