The Kylindros project consists of large cylindrical elements which play an architectural role in the space where they are placed: they may stay in the middle of rooms as walk-in cabinets that you can enter. The pieces are suitable for display or storage of items and accessories – as sport equipments or clothes, as a stand-alone closet, as a cocktail cabinet, to store technical apparels, as a fitting room and more. Their cylindrical shape has a vibrant look, thanks to the wood Decor finish, carved with an irregular pattern which revives the characterisation and the flavours of craftsmanship.
“We took a cue from functions that usually need custom-made furniture solutions and dealt with a new typology: a large container, which it is possible to walk in and which can store objects and even large technological instruments. It should solve problems that arise in residential and contract areas: from displaying (clothing and accessories) to concealing (technologial appliances), from containing (cumbersome equipment as sets of golf clubs, ski, diving or photographic equipment) to archiving (documents) – when one wishes to fix all that with a furniture piece having a positive visual impact, set at the center of the area. The inside may be custom-fitted; we designed some standards fittings as the double spiral of shelves, an Escher-inspired feature”. (Bartoli Design)
The Kylindros frame is divided in three full-heigth parts, one consisting in the door whith a flush-mounted metal handle. The inside may be variously fitted and is equipped with a led lighting ceiling. Three typologies of internal fittings have been designed:
Kylindros Golf, for golf lovers;
Kylindros Show, equipped with twelve display shelves arranged in the shape of two spirals;
Kylindros Coat, equipped as a clothing closet.
Custom equipment is also possible according to clients’ specifications. The frame comes with the carved “Decor” finish in several wood species, including Teak, Oak, Rosewood, Ebony and Wengè.
