Maarten Van Severen, 2005

The colour-coordinated sliding doors on the front and back form the most striking feature of the Kast storage unit by Maarten Van Severen, which is available in three different heights. The low sideboard version of over two and a half metres in length exudes particular elegance. The stainless steel legs can be individually adapted to uneven floors.

Product family
Kast
Modular in structure, the Kast storage unit starts with a sideboard as the base version. For the medium-height version, a second base module is placed on top to create a shelf/wall cabinet combination. In the tallest version, two simple and sturdy wooden elements are added. Maarten Van Severen paid special attention to the colours of the sliding doors, which not only emphasise the proportions of Kast but also give it a fresh and optimistic feeling.
