Design, architecture and art blend harmoniously in this family of cabinets designed by Storage Associati. The project hovers between postmodernism and reminders of the playful graphic design of the 1980s in its irregular perspective, also emphasized by the intense choice of colors. The reference to architecture is stated in the name NYNY, namely New York, New York. The game of volumes is a tribute to the New Museum of Contemporary Art in Nolita, a building with the archetypal form of a Babylonian ziggurat.
The symbol of the collection is the totemic asymmetrical cabinet, a piece of furniture of forceful emotional impact that proudly takes the stage in any space.
NYNY takes form by asymmetrical stacking of geometric volumes sustained by a metal wall structure. Each volume corresponds to a specific function: below, two drawer, low and high; above, two compartments with doors, where the lower one can also be used as a desk. The special characteristic is the theatrical presence based on asymmetry, with the combination of materials and intense hues.
The brass-plated structure is the support skeleton; a back on which the various volumes are fastened, allowing them to remain suspended and independent of each other. NYNY is the first cabinet offered by Gebrüder Thonet Vienna.
