The metal sideboard has four drawers and is contemporary, massive, and elegant at the same time. This is a kind of understanding of modernist aesthetics, where the subject consists of a group of simple geometric figures. The graphic drawing of the facade is formed by the notches between the drawers. Hand brushed pattern on the stainless steel surface looks like ripples on the water.

Once, while traveling, I noticed a rough brushed wall inside the elevator. It was an old loft building refitted in a modern way with a rooftop restaurant in New York. That brushing was made there on purpose to hide some profanity words and drawings that were on the wall.
What impressed me the most was the rough brushing by itself. It looked artistically, but at the same time told us a common story of the elevator which was in usage for several decades. It was a kind of creative destruction. That image of the surface with the traces of real life on it inspired me to use the brushed effect in our new furniture collection.

The sideboard made from MDF and stainless steel. The main feature is the unique pattern on the facade and the tabletop. We experimented a lot with the hand brushing and patterns and chose one which reminds of ripples on the water.

People pay attention to the hand brushed pattern as something unique and collectible. It is cool to see our sideboard in eclectic interiors where it could be placed next to fluffy and cozy objects and make a strong visual contrast.
