Aipim

Arthur Casas

The unusual Aipim sideboard features a long shape that tapers further at the ends. The slanting legs – an extension of the sides – transmit a palpable sense of elegance. The original double folding door, which opens out fully like a book, underlines the dynamism of the design, allowing observes to get a full view of the inside. The intrinsic delicateness of this piece that elevates it from simple storage item to expression of sophisticated elegance.
