Super rare Side 1 drawer cabinet designed by Shiro Kuramata and manufactured by Cappellini in Italy in 1989. The ‘Side One’ was first executed by Fujiko, Tokyo, for a short period before being produced by Cappellini in 1986. The ‘Drawer in an irregular form’ is one of Kuramata’s most recognised designs. This cabinets was one of the first 8 that were produced and purchase by the first owner in 1989. It is in good original condition and got a nice patina over time. It was used as a sculpture which it practically is, though a functional one.
A sinuous S shape – either side to side or front to back. Part of the collection “furniture in irregular forms”. The cherry wooden structure supports a series of 18 wooden drawers with cylindrical handles in brushed steel. At the base it has rubber spherical wheels. This is a true collectors item as ther arent many of these on the market as the production of the wooden version was very limited.
