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.
