Container is a modular sideboard system. As if a regular sideboard had been split into different elements, different “containers”.

It is really a research on deconstruction and reconstruction. As if a “standard” sideboard with its different storage functionalities had been split into various elements just to be reconstructed in a different, uneven manner.
