Hide to organise: the new flexible furnishings by Scavolini

The Italian company presented the innovative BoxLife project in collaboration with the Rainlight design studio and its creative director Yorgo Lykouria. 

Today more than ever, the home is a dynamic place, which must adapt with flexibility to different uses and people' changing habits. Especially in recent times, thinking of our homes as fluid interiors has become a necessity. "The house has always been the set that we prepare around us, the stage where we organise the scenery in which we recite our existence. (...) Transformability is the criterion that allows you to control the places you build in the best possible way: me as an architect and everyone as a resident of a domestic space," explains architect Michele De Lucchi – former director of Domus – in a recent interview.

To meet this need, Scavolini, in collaboration with the Rainlight design studio and its creative director Yorgo Lykouria, presents BoxLife, a modular furniture system that conceals the different domestic functions to guarantee maximum flexibility in the organisation of spaces. Designed for both large lofts and small studio flats, BoxLife offers various linear, corner or gulf solutions that allow a room to be transformed thanks to its elegant panelling. Scavolini encloses infinite functions in a single project.

The Made in Italy company offers foldaway, packaged, sliding or drop-down opening systems: from wardrobes with foldaway doors (single or double) in the kitchen – which can contain up to four appliances, an additional sliding worktop, as well as numerous shelves and storage drawers – to sliding systems for the living area, and also the laundry area. For the sleeping area, various types of beds are available – double, single and bunk beds – and two opening modes – manual and motorised. The furniture is also equipped with lighting systems inside the wardrobes, and a series of wardrobe accessories.

The handles and holds of BoxLife ensure uniformity and stylistic continuity: the opening of the external panels is made possible by recessed handles, while that of the interior furnishing elements by a handle profile on the head of the door. 

In this penthouse, a central block separates the living area from the sleeping area, making the space highly functional. The bed, when necessary, is revealed thanks to a comfortable manual opening. From a stylistic point of view, the structure is in Cori leather effect while the doors of the panels are veneered Oak

"BoxLife is designed to meet a variety of needs; a precise requirement of today's modern living spaces that require limitless adaptability from their most demanding inhabitants. BoxLife allows the same space to be used simultaneously for a variety of purposes. A place to cook, work, sleep, do laundry and store one's own wardrobe, a haven to relax; it facilitates the harmonious coexistence of each 'component' with the others," says designer Yorgo Lykouria of Rainlight Studio.

With a strong focus on the contract world, BoxLife responds both to the demand for custom-made spaces and to the increasingly widespread need of designers to find standardised solutions to meet current lifestyles.
