Intro Text (will show in Directory only):

Sideboards and entertainment units aren’t generally objects of desire – those that define a room and the character of its occupants. However, that’s not always the case and in the small Italian town of Brugnera, a group of designers saw the value in creating pieces of furniture that do exactly that.

The company that resulted from this inspiration, Sangiacomo, has been manufacturing furniture since 1968 and has caught the attention of a global market. In New Zealand, it is imported exclusively by Ultimate Living.

Most of the sideboards and entertainment units are designed as floating visions; wall-mounted pieces of art, some designs with perspex legs to maintain their floating appearance if they can't be wall mounted.

They are decadent, colourful and full of life and each is designed to create a sense of movement within its overall form. “These pieces are designed for those who want to create a point of difference, a talking point that is both practical and beautiful,” Ultimate Living’s Katrin Eriksson says. “They offer storage and functionality without compromise.”

Each unit incorporates a combination of shapes, materials and colours ranging from lacquered finishes, matt or gloss, neutrals to accent colours,and rustic chunky wood to slimline aluminium detailing.

“Attention to detail in each piece such as staggered depth sections, different thicknesses and materiality in doors creates the illusion of visual movement. When wood is used, natural veins and irregularities take on an aesthetic value in contrast with the other materials.”

Each piece is different from the next, and all encompass a contemporary combination of doors that open differently, from sliding to hinged, pull-down or pull-up options.

“The beauty of these designs is the limitless architectural possibilities,” Katrin says. “Many of the units have a contemporary look with a hint of mid-century modernism using accent colours such as burned orange, aubergine, and teal shades. When you combine a chunky wood open shelf arrangement with different coloured gloss and matt lacquered doors as well as the juxtaposition of slimline metal shelves, for example, you are looking at a stunning piece of art.”
