FACADE
by De Intuitiefabriek | The Netherlands

For Cotto’s Quado series De Intuïtiefabriek designed a bathroomcabinet ‘Facade’; a “facade” of mirrors that opens like an accordion.Behind the mirrors you’ll find storage space accompanied by bathroom accesories. Opening the mirror doors makes it possible to look at yourself from different angles. There is a five- and a three- door cabinet in the same size which can be linked to each other endlessly to create as big of a mirror facade as one wishes.The outside of the cabinet shows a simple and quiet image of self reflection, like the facade of a building or a persons look one can only see its outer beauty. The inside shelve structure with its content reveals a lot more about the space of beauty. It shows more distinct materials, shapes and details that are to be complemented with personal items. Like the inside of a fossil ‘Facade’ shows its inner beauty. Combined contrasts to get the best of both worlds.
