From the Designers:
Hierve is launching to the market its “Ropero” Wardrobe System at the next edition of the Tortona Design Week. The product will be presented at Superstudio Piu´s famous Temporary Museum For New Design from the 17th until the 22nd April 2012.
Ropero, which translates to “wardrobe” in Spanish, is a modular freestanding wardrobe system that represents a spark of spontaneous ingenuity to blend both the traditional wardrobe and glass cabinet motifs – giving birth to a practical and flexible solution that creatively addresses contemporary needs for clothes storage.
Offering a wide range of possible configurations, colour combinations, lighting effects and reflections, Ropero enriches the visual experience of the interior space by lending to its expressive design a viable functionality as a storage area.
Comprising a series of stackable modules and bases that can be freely arranged according to the client’s whims and needs, this design breathes strong personality and allows it to take on a lively character of its own. Depending on the storage needs, space constraints and financial possibilities of each client, these modules and bases may be configured to taste.
The modules are fully customisable – this means that clients are open to choices: any colour from the Pantone spectrum for the inner MDF structure, any type of solid wood as well as a choice of mirrors or glass for the outer frame. We are happy to help any client in need of a tailor made solution for his or her needs.
