customizable alf dafrè cabinets tailor-made for interior spaces & styles

driven by craft traditions, tailor-made production and the importance of family, alf dafrè has delivered flexible, stylish furniture and complete systems to all areas of the home since the 1950s. the italian brand now integrates leading 4.0 industry technologies into its manufacturing thanks to their advanced production site, called LOTTO 1. with better planning and monitoring of processes, this factory enables the company to produce fast, customized products at the highest quality and without waste of material, costs and time. every piece is made to order; no parts are produced and stored in a warehouse. instead, this allows every order to be made with different characteristics and specific requests in order to fit any commercial or residential project.


as the first collections to be made in the LOTTO 1 factory, alf dafrè unveils three systems of cabinets with new elements, parts and finishes: ‘DAY COLLECTION’, ‘MY SPACE’ and ‘POKER’.

offering complete compositional freedom, ‘DAY COLLECTION’ comprises modular containers, shelves, backs, benches and drawer units. the system features three new elements: ‘SHOW’, ‘DIKO’ and ‘GHOST’. each provides a flexible solution to fit into full or empty spaces in the home, while continuing to offer a range of different finishes and colors.


available from the second part of 2019, ‘SHOW’ is an alternative to the classic closed wall unit. with smooth door surfaces that sit flush when closed, the sleek system leaves exposed objects displayed on the glass shelves within.

defined by great flexibility in dimensions, ‘DIKO’ offers new containers that float above the floor with a minimal metal structure. with straight, formulated edges and lips, the linearity of the design is disrupted by a glass case that effortlessly opens with a hidden ‘push pull’ mechanism.

the ‘GHOST’ element features glass doors and side panels



also with hidden mechanisms, the hinges of the new ‘GHOST’ wall unit ensures the design achieves a clean and linear aesthetic. this clarity is reinforced with its doors and side parts made in glass, which exhibits internal objects proudly.

many modular elements can be integrated into ‘MY SPACE’ system



as a flexible solution to the needs of contemporary living, ‘MY SPACE’ is a storage system that can seamlessly integrate functional elements such as baskets, drawers, a writing desk, an adjustable TV stand and even a new transparent bookcase module called ‘EXPO’. the system is composed of a modular supporting shoulder frame with 35mm thick sides and shelves. it ensures maximum compositional and stylistic versatility to suit any interior from kitchens to living rooms or sleeping areas.

‘POKER’ can be created with different sized drawers, cupboards and shelves



designed by enrico cesana, ‘POKER’ is a tailor-made wardrobe system that can be used to organize spaces within any room. as such, the design offers an endless range of compositional possibilities as well as a wide array of colors and finishes. included in this is a brass finish for the new ‘REV’ recessed handle and a new melamine ‘GURE’ finish, which was inspired by the special texture of the brand’s textile collection.
