Piero Lissoni, one of Italian famous interior designers, designed for Porro a versatile collection that fits the living room area as well the bedroom. Piero Lissoni designed the structure of all cabinet and bookcase system of this collection. Porro, one more step towards excellence in Italian design.
From closet to coat hanger. From bookcase to shelf. Boutique Mast is the new system by Porro that aims to versatility. Distinctive feature of the creator Piero Lissoni is the graphical linearity – verging on the essentiality – which allows the product to naturally fit for both minimal contexts and creative spaces.
Inspired by masts, the design is organized in vertical such as horizontal directions. Circular metal uprights proceed upwards tracing geometrical motif, where freely fit hanging open or equipped modules, preciously refined with a 45° corner jointing, selecting the finish among the 16 woods and the 24 Porro colours.
Functionality and simplicity characterize Boutique Mast in the three variations created for the living area. A small but functional composition for the entryway, with burnished brass uprights and hanging racks for jackets and coats, a low shelf on which to place bags and a Modern open unit.
An high expression of freedom for the latest, two proposals, that become bookshelves. The first one protected by a glass C, composed of iron finishing uprights and 4mm reduced thickness shelves. The second supports a double row of Modern cases of different heights with wooden exteriors and interiors lacquered in different colours, a true totem in the space.
The bedroom features products with iron finishing or burnished brass, a large lateral mirror, for elegant results.
