Created for a home in constant transformation, Nobu can be placed next to an armchair or a sofa in the living area, but it can also become a bedside table. It is made of three stackable parts for different combinations: cabinet, cushion and tray. Small objects can be stored at its base. Just add a cushion and you can transform it into an ottoman for sitting or for resting your legs. The addition of the tray makes it a table, on which to place a remote control or a book. Raffaella Mangiarotti for Alf DaFrè has designed it as a small passe-partout for houses where space is limited, with a pressing need for functional quality. “In the living area, near sofas, we often need small ‘servants’ that respond to our desires. A surface on which to rest your feet, a storage unit, a tray for a glass of water or a cup of tea. At the end of the evening, you can stash a blanket or newspapers. Order creates a sense of wellbeing.”
The various configurations take on impact thanks to three freely combined colors, with no limits on the imagination, selecting from fabrics in different hues and different finishes – natural or lacquered – for the wood.
