With RIQUADRO, interior designers, architects, and their clients can configure modern sideboards, highboards, and storage units that have at once a very delicate look and an undeniable architectural presence. Every RIQUADRO unit can both visually contain and expand the space it is in, functioning either as an elegant partition or as a connecting element between different areas of the home. Thanks to its high-quality finishes and wide range of modularities, the system gives the customer freedom to design the units that will best suit their home, both functionally and aesthetically:
- Each unit features a brushed anodized aluminum frame in one of three finishes and shelves in Extralight tempered glass.
- Sides, doors, tops, internal bases, and back panels can be customized using unique combinations of precious materials which, in turn, determine what kind of dialogue the furniture piece will have with its surroundings and the ambiance it will create.
- Materials include glass, marble, ceramic, lacquer, and nine exclusive woods. The tempered quality of the glass makes it a more durable and fracture-safe material, adding practicality to the sophisticated aesthetics. All the available woods are compliant with the very low formaldehyde emission standards set by the California Air Resources Board, Phase II.
- The glass sides and doors offer different degrees of transparencies, playing with light to paint beautiful reflections in a subtle game of concealment and reveal. Remote-controlled LED lights placed on every shelf enhance this effect.
- The units can come with a floor base (60 mm high), short legs (180 mm), or tall legs (290 mm).
RIQUADRO marks the first product design collaboration between Snaidero USA and Italian architect Mario Mazzer, whose body of work includes numerous prestigious international prizes like the Good Design Award, the Red Dot Design Award, and the American Architecture Prize, as well as the inclusion in the MoMA’s “Design Encyclopedia” (2004).
All RIQUADRO units are hand-crafted in Italy using state-of-the-art technologies, giving the guarantee of an authentic made-in-Italy product. Like all the cabinetry that is part of Snaidero USA’s ELEGANTE Bespoke Collection, RIQUADRO is available only in the Americas through the company’s retail network of flagship showrooms and independent dealers.
