The creator worked with a furniture brand known as Formabilio to make this unique piece. The design is known as Calibro and is derived from the world calibre, which refers to the internal diameter or bore of a gun barrel and is also used in Italian to describe a vernier caliper measuring instrument.
The sideboard is long and low hight and has spaces cut out from the center and at each end that can be used for storage. The piece features three orange leather belt straps wrap around the ends of the sideboard. These straps are designed to look like the buckles found on an old wooden ammunition.
“The decayed purpose of this furniture piece becomes modern and Calibro turns into media unit in the living room,” said Cristiano. “It can also be a storage bench at the entrance, where you can place books, ornaments, vases and various objects, or in the center of the room as a coffee table.”
“Calibro has simple lines and strong contrasts between materials,” Cristiano said. “The overall effect is an original decor that combines functionality, modern design and a hint of retro style.”
