The text below is from Fabio Novembre:


Maybe a day someone would say that Robox represents my cubist period or that the edge solution has been the trick to find out the “right way” after the hyperboles and parabola of my work. From Mazinga to the Transformers the boys of my generation had always have a robot on their side and I was searching for a new function able to justify still its presence next to my desk.

The simple change of a consonant reveals the inclusive attitude of this new domestic hero: a device with a heart, an hard-disk pre-digital where store our memories.

Freestanding bookshelf in polished metal
Dimensions: Height 78 cm x depth 31 cm x width 184 cm
Available in different colours all with red heart
