The perfect equilibrium between rationalist rigour and modern use of materials, the El Paso cabinet by Giulio Cappellini is animated by delightful chromatic contrasts.
The cabinet, anthracite matte lacquered, sets off the doors which are available in either a matte lacquered or glossy finish (in the colours from the collection), or in the new glossy metallic lacquered finish (in 4 shades).
The doors open on specially-designed hinges: on the El Paso sideboard, handles and any form of decorative element, are completely absent…and justifiably so. This choice allows the viewer’s gaze to rest on absolutely clean lines which impart a sense of lightness and extreme linearity, making the design almost architectural.
The Milanese architect has worked since 1979 with the spirit and the aims of a man in continuous renewal. Over the years, his work has turned to be the designer’s one, proposing a personal reading of contemporary design, both for the brand bringing his name in the world, and as art director of other important design brands. His more important project, the “company”, transformed Cappellini into one of the biggest “trend setters” worldwide. Big interest is always present for his lectures at the Milan Architecture University, at the Domus Academy and worldwide, from Montreal to Valencia.
