alex schulz adds a statement spotlight to the traditional armoir


alex schulz, originally an architect, reimagines the traditional armoir by incorporating a spotlight on the articles of clothing. having previously designed a single prototype of the armoir, schulz has built on his collection of furniture. the combination of the various steel frames and armoir legs create the vast and colorful collection that make up ‘anytime’. additionally, the clothing armoir is clad in an acrylic shell superlaced with optical foliage, faux leather or wood.

in addition to being used as a simple peice of furniture, schulz‘s ‘anytime’ is a statement piece that adds sophistication and contemporanety to any space. the idea behind the concept is to create an object that adapts to small spaces, is light weight and adds a sense of playfulness to any room.
