This night stand and these two side tables are beautiful artworks by industrial designer Andrea Kac. Kac explains the first piece “One Night Stand”, the one in yellow, a combination of beauty and practicality born out of a need in her own life:
“My experience when moving to my first apartment was living with the fewest furniture as possible, firstly because I was trying to save and second because I wanted those few items to be very well designed. Though with time I furnished my home the way I wanted I never was able to find the RIGHT night table.
For a small apartment one just needs one night table to put next to the sofa bed that should be compact, have a strong graphic design to it and help one get all those small objects organized. This is why One Night Stand was designed, an updated version of a basic night table thought for today’s real needs.
It is important that it helps solve the problem of keeping the mobile charger plugged in a neat way, leaving all ugly cords out of sight. It was also important that it had a strong graphic feel, making a presence in the room instead of going unnoticed as most night tables. The name plays with the concept of only needing ONE night table, making this long forgotten piece of furniture young and fresh again.”
The second two pieces, side tables called “Anywhere Sideboards” are created from a similar aesthetic and with the same practicality in mind:
“If in a fresh start I find it interesting designing a small side board first.
But one compact, modular, eye-catching piece that could work anywhere across the room. Normally, side boards seem visually heavy, taking up all this space next to our wall to give us some storage space.
But what if we rethink it as a more lighter piece, easier to move around and to add up if we need more storage space. Playing with the concept of what can be seen and what is kept put away I designed the doors with a cut out design that lets you peep a little without revealing the contents. This makes the box space of the furniture less solid, making it lighter to the eye as well as giving it a modern graphic feel making it look young and fresh.”
