Wooden containers system with metal sheet structure
The Stac containers family was created from the concept of offering different types of furniture with different functions, not by means of variations in size, but by stacking the elements. Each module is in fact made of a monolithic wooden volume, supported by a thin metal sheet that can be inserted into the module below, creating an open compartment and allowing stacking. There are two variations - one horizontal, the other vertical - each of which can be assembled with modules of two different heights. The possibility of purchasing the single element or combining several elements by stacking them together gives rise to different types: a small low container can function autonomously or, if surmounted by another module, transform into a sideboard equipped with a mobile bar, a TV console can become a sideboard with drawers.
The materials involved, wood and iron, were used trying to minimize the visual impact as much as possible; so the sheet metal, used side-on in 3 mm thickness, guarantees support by suspending the wood in an almost magical equilibrium. The wooden block is characterised by 45-degree encounters that enhance the continuity of the wood veining. The production goal was to reduce and standardise the components to optimise the processes. Even the sheet metal, which is folded, in addition to avoiding welds, is consistent with the encounters between the elements of the wooden shell. The autonomy of the various modules creates a great advantage because it allows the furniture to be shipped ready-assembled, without taking up too much space.
