“Loop is a sideboard made of solid oak. The two steel tubes U-shaped have a double function: as legs and as a structural element, which avoids the need to close the sideboard on the sides. This allows the user to access the content in an easier way.

But, the most surprising is the way the shutters are opened. One of our obsessions when we designed the sideboard together with Fāctil, was to avoid traditional handles, which would interrupt the continuity of the shape. We avoided it by letting the last slat of each shutter free, so they would act as the handles. So, when Loop is closed, you have to guess where it opens.” (Text: goulafiguera.com)
