The Legato cupboards and cabinets envisioned by Claesson Koivisto Rune have a soft and friendly personality paired with an iconic appearance. The most striking design feature of this project is the shape of the doors. They are neither square nor round and they are non-geometrical. Positioned next to each other, in repetition, they present a range of eye-catching and memorable combinations.
The shape of the doors reminds us of how musical notes are drawn. In music performance and notation, legato (Italian for “tied together”) indicates that musical notes are played or sung smoothly and connected. That is, the player transitions from note to note with no intervening silence. It’s difficult to decide whether to choose a monochromatic version of the project, or go with an intense color mix. Either way, the result fits wonderfully into a wide variety of modern design schemes, with spectacular aesthetic effects. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Claesson Koivisto Rune]
