Lacquered bar cabinet
This majestic masterpiece based on the form of a Medieval mask is supported by a pyramid-shaped joint. The two doors lend character to the work and require skilful craftsmanship in their production. Each is fashioned from a single piece of birch that is hollowed out on the inside to lighten it as much as possible and enable small compartments and containers to be created. A special Rodrigodesign hinge system allows the doors to be opened to a lateral position by means of an extremely elegant automated movement, taking up the least amount of space possible. On the interior, the cherry wood shelves have a natural finish, as does the interior of the body of the piece, which is created through the patient craftsmanship of skilful wood sculptors. Each of the main body’s ten interior compartments is illuminated by individual LED lights whose colour can be changed by remote control to create the desired atmosphere in the room. This is one of the most sophisticated and complex of the Sculptures Utilitaires, requiring four months for production and delivery. The colours and functions of the piece can be customized and small changes in the proportions and size are possible.
