Due to its multifunctional use, the most challenging aspect of designing the Sideboard by CreateSpace is to resolve all the technical details and their accurate manufacturing. Also using ropes instead of classic doors led to experimentation with materials, mechanisms, and fabrication techniques. As the opening system was established, multiple iterations of physical models led to definig the distance and diameter of the ropes to ensure a satisfying interaction and transparecy.
The challenge was to join the idea of minimalistic design with a functional domain that would not constrain ones personal comfort.
