WOW Cabinet
by Laura Ortín

“First you live alone, then you are two, then four…” Wow Cabinet is a multitasking piece of furniture that solves different uses, designed by Laura Ortín.

Since the clients needed their own study area, they had closed the balcony of the house to increase the living room area. The architect took the opportunity to get rid of the pieces that have been colonising the room spontaneously over the years.

The project consists of the design of a piece of furniture to solve for the various desires on a small scale.

The side of the study tables can be opened to allow cleaning of the windows.The lower part of the TV allows you to open and hide the doors where all the "pots" connected to the television are placed.

The dreaded orientation to the west is overcome with the capable subtlety of being able to turn around while you study.

It is made in nude lacquered DM. The continuity of the color helps to order but with different geometries that qualify the space ending in a "hug".

The furniture disintegrates and integrates with the living room and continues the passage of natural light but preserving intimacy and providing concentration for study or teleworking.
