SCAVOLINI INTRODUCES BOX LIFE
One product, endless possibilities – that’s the ethos behind Box Life, a smart interior design concept that brings together living and sleeping areas for a fully flexible space. A modular system ideal for city dwellers, the idea is to keep things neat and organised, so cabinets could contain a kitchen, a bed behind a vertical bottom-hinged flap, storage space or a laundry area. Available as linear, U-shape or corner solutions, the Switch cupboards feature retractable doors, which can house up to four appliances, an additional sliding worktop, multiple shelves and storage drawers as well as sliding systems for the living and bedroom areas.
