SB11 Sideboard by Christian Kroepfl

Home > Winners > #57401




DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
SB11

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Sideboard

INSPIRATION:
Now a multifunctional object the SB11 originally was designed as an entertainment centre that is of course capable of storing upright vinyl records (and file folders). For a vinyl enthusiast this is essential but rare nowadays! Due to the distance of the cabinets to the wall the cables on the back are invisible.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The speciality of the SB11 is its versatility: cabinets are sandwiched between wood slabs placed on top of a delicate steel lattice framework. This sideboard is available in several lengths, in different colours of cabinet surfaces and a selection of natural wood finishes and with optional features (cable management, ventilation openings, etc.). it can easily be converted into a storage rack by stacking multiple layers on top of one another.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
If you know how to use a tip-on opening system, the SB11 is self explanatory and a very versatile peace of furniture, especially if it is used as an entertainment centre. Due to the overlapping wood slabs on the back, you can easily manage any occurring cable salad.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2015 and finished in February 2016 and was successfully exhibited in Salone del Mobile in April 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
wood - naturally oiled steel - lacquered MDF - lacquered

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
W = 184, 204, 224, 244, 264 cm D = 45 cm H = 76 cm

TAGS:
sideboard, storage, entertainment centre, entertainment center, shelf, shelves, cable management, audio equipment, video equipment

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I tried to find a well designed sideboard that fits in the producer's series which started with the meanwhile well known table KT11, at the moment we are developing a shelf. palatti, the producer, is specialized in wood an steel, so it was logical to use mainly these components. I addition lacquered MDF elements are used because they allow a wide range of colours.

CHALLENGE:
It was the most strenuous to find a suitable opening system. I could enthuse several producers of hinges for a prototype of a hinge, but in the end I was talking about a manageable amount of opening systems and they talked constantly about 200.000+ items. Fortunately a very good solution could be found in the end.

The award-winning SB11 sideboard is truly an exceptional piece of design. Its versatility and ability to be converted into a storage rack by stacking multiple layers is a unique feature that sets it apart from other sideboards. The use of wood, steel and lacquered MDF elements is masterfully executed, giving the sideboard a timeless aesthetic. It's also been designed with the vinyl enthusiast in mind, as it has the perfect distance from the wall to make the cables on the back hidden and invisible. The amount of research and effort that went into this design is evident, and it is clear that Christian Kroepfl has put a great deal of care and attention into making this sideboard a true masterpiece.

We are truly inspired by the versatility of the SB11 sideboard. The combination of cabinets between wood slabs, supported by a delicate steel lattice framework, provides the perfect balance of functional storage and a modern, stylish aesthetic. It is also great to see the variety of lengths, colours and natural finishes available, as well as all the optional features, giving us plenty of options to choose from to match our individual needs and tastes. It is also great to know that we can stack multiple layers to turn this piece into a storage rack. All these features make the SB11 a truly unique and remarkable piece of furniture design.

I am absolutely blown away by this furniture design! The versatility and functionality of the SB11 sideboard is incredible, with its cabinets sandwiched between wood slabs and delicate steel lattice framework. Not only this, but the sideboard can be easily converted into a storage rack and comes in several lengths, colours, and natural wood finishes. The idea of designing an entertainment centre that is capable of storing upright vinyl records is a unique and creative concept that shows the designer's attention to detail. The research and effort put into finding a suitable opening system is also impressive, and the end result is a masterpiece of furniture design. Congratulations on winning the A' Design Award for this outstanding work!

As a design enthusiast, I'm absolutely in awe of this sideboard. It's a multifunctional piece of furniture that manages to combine modern design with a sense of nostalgia. The distance of the cabinets to the wall makes the cables invisible, which gives the piece an overall clean look. And the fact that it is capable of storing upright vinyl records is a definite plus. It's a wonderful piece that speaks to both the modern and traditional design sensibilities. Bravo!
