FIDELIO | Highboard
Highboard with drawers
A collection of storage units for any room in the home. Low cabinet for the living room. Chest of drawers, tall boy and bedside table for the bedroom. Deliberately lean design, precious materials. Functional details become highly characteristic aesthetic elements, such as the recessed handles that provide interesting graphics on the surfaces. Intense contrast also between the dark, warm hues of Cuoio Saddle Extra leather and the wood covering the outside and the bight explosion of the very pale natural maple used inside the compartments and drawers. Formal minimalism and sophisticated finishes for an across-the-board collection, an easy match for all the Poltrona Frau furnishings yet with its own very defined personality. The low cabinet has a supporting frame in solid ash and birch plywood with moka coloured ash veneer. The system of compartments and drawers creates an alternating balance of empty and solid. The unit stands on a solid ash easel structure emphasising its visual lightness, perfect for living areas. The Fidelio bedroom units are more compact, to provide all the storage space needed in this room. The supporting frame is in solid Canaletto walnut and birch plywood with Canaletto walnut veneer. All the pieces in the collection have the outside of the drawers and side panels covered in Cuoio Saddle or Cuoio Saddle Extra leather. On request, the back panel can also be covered in leather, otherwise it comes in moka ash or Canaletto walnut veneer. An even richer impression of solidity is given by the versions with semi-polished Calacatta gold marble top for the bedroom units, plus a polished finished for the low cabinet. Alternatively, top in solid wood with moka coloured ash veneer for the low cabinet or in Canaletto walnut for the bedroom units.
Roberto Lazzeroni has expanded the Fidelio collection offering his interpretation of the high cabinet.
Clean, slender lines create a piece of furniture designed like a contemporary cupboard. Its most distinctive feature is the vertical line that neatly separates the two doors. The base takes the form of a moka-coloured solid ash stand that brings out the visual lightness of the piece. The materials evoke the aesthetic codes of the collection, particularly those of the low cabinet. The warm and intense tones of Cuoio Saddle Extra leather or Cuoio Saddle leather envelop the exterior. And in an evocative contrast, when opening the cabinet there is the surprising brightness of the extra light natural maple that completely covers the compartments and the inside surface of the doors, creating movement and depth.
There are two alternatives for the interior fittings. A classical and functional arrangement with three large drawers and a system of shelves and surfaces.
Or an accessorised version to becomes a stylish mobile bar. It has sophisticated interiors with bottle-holder trays, glass shelves for glasses and multi-purpose trays upholstered in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather or Cuoio Saddle leather. Bronzed mirrors on the back wall embellish the entire effect. Opening the doors, a warm diffused light sets off the interior by way of an LED lighting system automatically activated by sensors.
The supporting structure of the Fidelio high cabinet is in solid ash and birch plywood. The top is in ash with a moka finish or Emperador marble with a glossy finish or Calacatta gold marble with a glossy or semi-glossy finish. The rubber-capped steel feet can be adjusted. The fronts of the drawers, mounted on metal runners with soft closing mechanism, are also upholstered in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather or Cuoio Saddle leather. Precious contrast or tone on tone stitching refines the saddle leather cover on the surfaces of the cabinet. If desired, the rear can be in moka-stained ash or upholstered with saddle leather.
