When designer Shay Alkalay created his first Pivot cabinet for Arco in 2008, it became an instant hit. The simplicity, paired with the space-saving qualities, earned this piece a well-deserved recognition. It even received the Dutch Design Award, 2008 in ‘best residential product’ category. Recently the Pivot family expanded. The new Pivot desk and vanity table were added to the line. The objects exhibit the same minimalistic approach to space and form. And because the drawers are hinged together, they can be opened at the same time, – a convenience most traditional cabinets cannot match.

This piece was definitely designed with space limitations in mind. Cubox from Elemento Diseno is a horisontal string of boxes that can form several different configurations. The end cabinets can be flipped up, and the whole piece can be transformed into two vertical stacks of two, cutting the required floor area in half. The color scheme is a bit boring (black, white and two gray shades in between), but it makes Cubox even more universal.
