The Alto buffet is intended to be a versatile piece that combines the functionality of a buffet with a bookshelf. This allows the Alto buffet to be placed in various locations around the house. As a complement to the dining set, the buffet’s storage can house dinnerware and cutlery, while its top shelf can be used to display fine china. The buffet also makes for a great storage piece in a study to store loose files and books.
Each product in the Alto range is designed to be a multi-purpose piece. A bookcase come console table with two drawers in the middle, a two-door and three drawer buffet with a bookshelf above it, or a desk come bookcase. By combining several functionalities, the alto range offers space-saving solutions for modern urban dwelling.
It further considers space limitations with a design that promotes openness. This is well demonstrated by the two trapezoidal vertical structures, optimising negative space which invites users to interact with objects housed in and on it. This is in direct contrast to traditional approaches to storage pieces, with only a single purpose that often appear heavy, formal, and boxed in.
