german design studio neuland (eva paster and michael geldmacher) has developed ‘blio’ for italian manufacturer kristalia. the overall framework is composed of modular components varying in height and depth, finished with white lacquer that provides an infinite interplay of volumes and surfaces. the interior spaces are easily accessible: open units, front and side openings, and doors that open and close without a handle, thanks to a ‘push-pull’ system.
