Designer: François Bauchet for Ligne Roset
In 2017, François Bauchet extends the construction principle of the Lapa shelving to encompass 2 new low elements: a low shelving unit and a low chest/sideboard with 2 lacquered doors. If the low shelving unit is only one part of the original high unit, the 2-door chest/sideboard offers a very elegant inset opening method: a solid oak hollowed-out hand-hold set diagonally into the fronts of the 2 doors, the slant of which echoes the broken lines of the shelving unit's vertical separation panel. Doors are faced in laminate.
The 2 elements (low shelving unit and 2-door chest) may be used independently or be combined with the addition of a top. It is possible to create different items by aligning 2 or 3 elements: several low shelving units, several 2-door chests/sideboards, or a mix of shelving units and chests/sideboards. The order in which the elements are juxtaposed is up to the customer.
