piero lissoni’s ‘commodore’ storage unit for glas italia which was displayed at salone del mobile 2016, uses a striped and checked printed glass, tempered and glued 45° with mirror lacquered details. the sliding doors run in plexiglass tracks, to reveal extra light shelves inside. the transparent appearance of the modular furniture piece showcases the different layers of glass, highlighting various shades and textures. the check and striped patterns act as the only form of ornamentation upon the surface. the unit contains no handles, but instead small circular openings which one can use to slide across. the simplicity of the design reflects a classic elegance, that expresses a pure vision in line with the designer’s signature style.
