Four legs and a seat shell
by Thomas Wagner | 6/13/2015
Toshi, meaning city in Japanese, is a system of mobile containers which calls to mind the mosaic decorations to be found in certain buildings in Tokyo. The fresh and essential lines optimise and emphasise the geometric design engraved on the doors of the
pieces. Each and every size of cupboard has its own distinct pattern, making the module unique. In addition, the Toshi system is completed by three optional smaller containers, either with doors or drawers, which can be positioned on the modules themselv
es. The reference to Japanese architecture is obvious: a micro city which develops its essentiality in geometric shapes, in proportioned heights and tonal colours. Bearing the weight of the architectural conception of this new system, are two different ve
rsions of legs: a single, closed horizontal block, bringing to mind a podium; and another higher one, made up of four squared, metal legs, as if they were the columns of a portico.
