Watches, conveyor belts and 50s furniture were among the sources of inspiration for the Jalousi furniture collection. From that cocktail, Simon Legald has created a contemporary collection of storage furniture, interpreting the classic roll-front cabinet.
The Jalousi collection, which consists of a sideboard and cabinets in two different sizes, is characterised by its minimalist idiom and a contrasting mix of materials. All of the designs feature practical rolling shutters in inviting shades of colour. The coloured shutters form an attractive contrast to the cabinet body in an oak veneer with legs of solid oak. The combination of materials and the graphic repetition of the shutter’s elements make the style young and masculine. Jalousi is a versatile collection that can be used anywhere storage is required. For ring binders and office articles in an office environment, storage of glass and porcelain in the dining room, or for books and knick-knacks in the living room. Movable shelves make it easy to adapt the cabinets to meet individual needs.
Material: MDF and veneered with lacquered oak. The front doors are made of ABS.
