Porro news from Milan - TILLER

True to the spirit of Porro and Piero Lissoni, elegance, simplicity, skill and quality
are at the center of the stage this year in Milan.

Tiller, a completely new pair of cabinets was impressive, the ease and comfort of
it's form proved a perfect platform for a new wood for Porro. A deep smoky eucalyptus
shown here at the fair.

A clean, substantial carcass perched on 4 slim steel legs, vaguely concealing its clever supporting
structure which is left visible inside the cabinet. The structure being a robust steel frame and actually a continuation of the legs, which in addition to carrying the structure also holds the thick glass shelves and
houses the door hinges. Hinges at 180 so each door opens flat to the cabinet, within
the doors are hidden magnets keeping them closed or open.


Subtlety can speak volumes

If this smart structrual design is interesting, Lissoni has
developed several series to see at Porro.com.
Glass wardrobes 'storage air'
Glass libraries 'ex-libris'
