the 'chameleon unit' has a seemingly 'magic volume'
that is constantly opening on itself like a game of chinese boxes, changing in appearance and revealing new finishes.
intended for use as a cupboard for the bedroom, it consists of a central crate in pear wood, equipped with drawers and shelves.
the hinges are covered in precious leather stripes that allow it to be turned and revolved like a suitcase or a bag.
the piece transforms its color and look, from black to white, according to the way it is configured by a user.
