MODERN | Highboard
Wooden highboard with doors
Modern, the system of containers and shelving for living rooms, is proposed for 2014 in compositions mixing colour to the various essences of Porro selection of woods, for a polychrome without fear, with a hint of anarchy, which experiments new combinations and custom-made palettes.
New Modern floor cupboards, raised up on a continuous base, play upon the geometric construction of open elements with rosso cina and blu reale lacquered backs and closed volumes in three of the new wooden essences, ranging from the warm and honey-blonde notes of the heat treated elm, to the streaked and reddish brown nuances of the heat treated hemlock, up to the dark burnt sienna hues of the heat treated oak. An eye-catching mix of bookcase, container and display unit, the new Modern + Load-It compositions combine the containing capacity of the Modern system with the graphic impact of the Load-It bookcase.
In the living area, the wall panels and the steel shelves of a full-length Load-It bookcase are proposed with the board and the hanging containers of Modern, creating ample equipped surfaces on the wall, with flashes of color alternated to wooden essences, in order to live in color, meanwhile in the study area the wall-mounted panels and shelves of Load-It make way for the Modern suspended shelf: a long, unbroken writing desk, fixed to the wall, creating a quiet, peaceful space for a home office.
Modern arises from a pure geometric shape: the square. And from a simple idea: its movement in the space. A module repeating itself to generate objects different in materials, colours and functional purposes. Various objects – containers, tops, shelves – which proportions and formal consistency are harmonious with.
An open collection of elements arises, combined and flexible, invented to draw spaces through sharp and elegant signs, shaped by rigorous lines, careful quality and refined design. A system allowing the greatest freedom to create the perfect combination of elements. A presence appropriate for every habitat.
