Marcel Sideboard by Fabrizio Simonetti for Formabilio
Marcel is a smart sideboard made of wood and tubular metal inspired by the Modern Cultural Movement developed during the interwar period.
Marcel has very simple, linear line with no fancy details. The chromed tubular metal legs supporting and embracing the wood structure are inspired by Marcel Breuer’s genius, one of the leading exponents of the Modern Movement. The doors are made by alternating slats of vertical and horizontal wood, recalling car grilles or antique radios from the early 1900s.
Marcel is an inspirational and fine piece of furniture that plays a leading role in any interior. Its design combines sophistication, innovation and contemporary style.
From Designer: For Marcel I took inspiration from the works and the materials which characterized the Modernism between the two world wars. However, its non-orthogonal sides soften the severity of the square shape required by Rationalism. Moreover, its doors, instead of being simple wooden panels, have a complex framework which looks like Op Art.
