Design by Luigi Glorini – R&S CUF MILANO
Elementary geometric shapes for the Doria reception, made of colored and interchangeable slats hooked onto a solid metal structure.
Elementary geometrical shapes, with a strong horizontal connotation, define the product whose characteristic consists in highlighting the contrasts in thickness between vertical structural parts and functional operative parts with reduced thickness. A peculiar connotation of the design of this reception system is the intersection of the volumes of the various elements: the side panels protrude strongly forward with respect to the front panels, reaching the outer edge of the tops which surmount the front panels in a non-symmetrical manner, but not the side panels.
The Doria reception is characterized by vertical melamine panels, whose thickness reaches 53 mm (structural panel 30 mm thick + set of front horizontal slats 18 mm thick + 5 mm gap), and wood conglomerate worktops with reduced thickness (18 mm), which seem to be even "lighter" as they are lifted from the underlying metal structure. To complete the reception, we offer melamine countertops, as thick as the worktops, or glass countertops 10 mm thick.
