Kabino is a series of furniture that solves most storage needs in the home.
Designer Simon Legald has put storage in the hot seat with Kabino, a series of versatile and functional furniture pieces. Kabino has an urban, industrial look created in a minimalistic idiom with well-considered details and materials. The signature open handles of the steel doors and drawers give an integrated expression, while a frame of ash adds warmth and exclusivity.
The Kabino sideboard with drawers and doors has an inbuilt cable outlet, making it ideal as hifi furniture. Perforated holes cover one of the sliding doors, adding visual elegance. The drawers have a soft close function, which means that they close silently. Combine the Kabino sideboard with other pieces from the Kabino series to create a coherent look in your interior.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
