Monks is a family of 4 small cabinets made with grey laquered oak designed by Paolo Cappello for italian company Valsecchi 1918. The inspiration for designing Monks came to be by observing the wooden frames used in traditional japanese interiors, so I wanted to give a well recognizable identity to the cabinets, I laquered on bright colours only the frame and the legs of the furniture leaving in grey wood all the rest, creating a contrast between the box and the borders.
Monks have a strong and ironic character, they can be used alone or all together creating a custom colourful sequence.
