Alessandro Criscito : Enigma

The doors of the invasive granny console who squeak? Very little for the Chilean designer Alessandro Criscito who imagines Emigna, a piece of furniture with a traditional shape but where the usual walls are replaced bysuperimposed foam blocks whose interstitial spaces serve as shelves. A clever way to store ... by camouflage!

Enigma is a piece of furniture in laminated wood panels between which are placed plates of pink foam. A new way of thinking about storage that allows the cabinet to be fully open, while hiding books and other magazines. A work that we owe to Alessandro Criscito, founder of the eponymous studio based in Santiago (Chile), TeVasq. No more need to take into account any rotation of doors to install at home this element of 150 centimeters long by 40 depth and 60 height.


"The use of foam in furniture generates a paradox when storing objects, because there is a contradiction between empty and full, between the visible and the hidden. " Alessandro Criscito, designer

An alternative to the classic cabinet, adding a touch of humor to an already proven concept.

An original buffet that would make the cleaning and storage of spring fun!
