& Private Client



Ability to transform the item into an invisible wall of doors, dressing area, shoe & bag storage & work desk. A compact design with a door mechanism that allows them to slide out of the way. This piece is a hidden feature of the apartment.

This custom item had a range of wonderful materials & finishes

used to create it: Velvet Diamond Finished Doors, Xylocleaf Melamine Carcass, Matte Painted Drawer Fronts & a Cerde Guatemala Marble Counter Top. A combination that makes this a truly marvellous creation.

/The Process

Door Fold in Mechanism

We have used a Hafele System that allowed the doors to fold away, giving the user clear space to use the desk without bumping into the surrounding doors.

Lighting Variety

There is a combination of different types of lighting techniques used. This achieves different objects in the item to be lit up from different angles, resulting in a well balanced composition in not having a heavy presence in the room when the unit is open.

In this project we got the opportunity to use our exclusive Velvet Finish. This choice of finish has added to the unique nature of the item & created a nice contrast to the other materials used.
