Inspired by the trend for open-plan living and the blurring of boundaries between the kitchen and other areas, Scavolini will introduce Box Life at EuroCucina. Envisioned by international design studio Rainlight and its creative director, Yorgo Lykouria, in collaboration with HOK, Box Life is a unique modular storage system that can be used throughout the home.
An unprecedented and comprehensive and modular system, distinguished by superior adaptability, Scavolini and Rainlight designed Box Life to support the increasingly nomadic lifestyle of sophisticated city dwellers and those who have limited square footage available, but do not want to forgo comfort.
The heart of the project is the idea of concealing furniture and appliances. Box Life cabinets could contain a kitchen, a bed – behind a vertical bottom-hinged flap – storage space or a laundry area. This makes it possible to create linear, corner or U-shaped solutions responsive to the setting. The exemplary ‘Switch’ cupboards feature retractable doors, which can house up to four appliances, an additional sliding worktop, multiple shelves and storage drawers, as well as sliding panel systems.
The undisputed starring role is played by the panelling. The handles and pulls were devised to guarantee comfort and the utmost stylistic continuity – recessed handles are fitted on the external panels, whereas the panels on the inside can be opened with a pull.
This system is ideal for the compact and bijoux contemporary home, where the distinction between kitchen, living room and bedroom is increasingly blurred. Designed especially for the contract furnishing market, Box Life accommodates both the desire for custom-made environments as well as the widespread requirement on the part of designers to find standardised solutions to accommodate new lifestyles.
