An abstract stacking of volumes that provide a rich variety of utilities.
Tube is designed by Studio Kairos as an abstract stacking of volumes that provide a rich variety of utilities. While the cabinets serve as storage units, the empty spaces created between the volumes present exciting alternative areas of use, both to store or to display.
Tube is designed as a fresh solution for storing documents and objects in the new work habitat. Replacing the rhythmically replicated typical file cabinet with doors, the design brings a new approach to the layout options and use of alternative volumes and spaces created while composing its elements.
Each box is designed to resemble a tube due to its constructive elements, as the surrounding surface panels are extruded out of the two sides. The handle is concealed in a cut-through opening detail. This cut line is either above or below the cabinet depending on the direction of the door opening.
