About This Project
PORADA INTERNATIONAL DESIGN AWARD 2015 – THIRD PLACE
Free-standing multimedia unit, with sturdy legs and an oval panel of solid wood. This is a contemporary and minimalist reinterpretation inspired by old television sets, which were placed in huge wooden furniture units and formed the central focus of the living room.
Like a sculpture, Equilibrio is a piece of furniture made with a careful selection of materials – black walnut, ash, marble, copper and glass – great craftsmanship, and meticulous attention to detail and finish.
Its glass top is visible yet also hidden: in conjunction with the 5° inclination of the front panel and the weight of the legs, it keeps the TV stable and balanced.
Expert craftsmen are required for bending the rear side of the panel, allowing Equilibrio to maintain a perfect balance and reducing the total weight at the centre of the structure.
The media unit conceals an adjustable metal internal TV stand, including accommodation for the power cables.
