We are all used to seeing ordinary cabinets made from different types of wood and plywood, but the collection we present today is not one! Designer Alain Gilles created the Frame sideboard collection for Italian manufacturer Bonaldo, and these cabinets will grab your attention!
The Frame sideboard collection uses a metal structure as the basic framework for building a sideboard: it supports the internal boards that can be pushed in. So it’s not just about design, it’s a more architectural principle. The side walls and top panel are then applied to the structure, leaving a gap along all edges to expose the structure. The metal structure not only consists of the bones, but is also visible and contributes to the appearance of the sideboard. There is a contrast between metal and wood and sometimes marble on top.
The edges of the supporting structure are visible through small chamfers and large rounded gaps. These rounded corners are a distinctive feature of the collection. Another chic idea that is implemented in these sideboards is the use of contrasting colors and surfaces between the various elements, which makes the furniture look more modern and angular.
