So much thought and consideration has gone into what appears to be a supremely simple design.The deep lower compartment, the simple movement of opening and closing each drawer that pivots around a solid ash totem. We love the free-form nature of this piece. That its use is not defined to one task. It can be used in a bathroom, a guest room, a hallway for keys, letters. Its use is only limited by our need for it. Combining a clean and uncluttered aesthetic with functional storage the Bellantonio can be opened and used to display much loved items in the home, or simply closed to form a pleasing cylinder that keeps bits and pieces in their place.
How Its Made
Bellantonio is made of bent beech. Available in natural beech finish or dark stain. This is an ingenious transformation of drum shells into an elegant chest drawer, suitable to any space. These round wooden chests of rotating drawers are obtained with the same technique that is employed in the creation of wooden drum shells for percussion instruments that are made of wooden horizontal layers. Drums, snare drums, and bass drums enter your home as objects of design (villadrums.it). VILLAHOMECOLLECTION is a small craft business that, in collaboration with young architects and designers, produces furnitures and homeware. We constantly look for new ideas without forgetting our long creative and artisan experience, aware of the fact that the design is as important as the final product. In the round wooden chest of rotating drawers BELLANTONIO, as in each piece of the collection, innovation and tradition, as well as extreme simplicity and artistic enhancement, coexist. The round shape is the special characteristic of various products. This is obtained through the special technique applied for the production of wooden drum shells for acoustic drums and percussion instruments. Unique is also our journey from the study of the acoustics for the production of exquisite musical instruments to the stylistic research for the production of objects characterised by extraordinary lightness and linearity, free from supplemental decorations that are not elegant details.
