‘Mikado’ cupboard by Front for Porro

At the upcoming Salone del Mobile in Milan, Italian design brand Porro will be showing a stand designed by Piero Lissoni, an open-plan ‘villa’ with flowing spaces with a unifying theme, the play of solids and voids. One of the new products to be shown in that stand illustrates the theme well, the ‘Mikado’ cupboard by Sweden’s Front Design.
