CONCEPTION : although it might be evocative of certain metal modular systems from the office world, Dita clearly distances itself from these in a number of ways: its lacquered panels are in wood rather than sheet metal; its discreet profiled uprights with their sophisticated finish are perfectly placed, cast and not part of the structure; a matching handle which is light and beautifully designed; and its small, slim feet which continue the line of the structure in a very natural way.
QUALITY OF MANUFACTURE & FINISHES: uprights are in 15 x 15 mm anodised aluminium section in a brushed bronze finish. These frame the wooden panels which are finished in argile lacquer on the interior faces and in a choice of 16 colours for all visible exterior faces:
– satin white, argile and perle (standard),
– rouge, bleu, bleu lavande, chocolat, mastic, noir, azur, brique, éléphant, moutarde, ranger, plomb and bleu nuit (to order).
All items are single-sided but are finished on the back (back panels and edges in argile lacquer). Certain items may be given an optional double-sided treatment, with the addition of a rear finishing panel.
Handles are in injected zamak, lacquered bronze to co-ordinate with the uprights.
Hinges are black.
The feet H 30 mm continue the line of the uprights and incorporate a black jack.
The new shelving unit, at H 189 cm the same height as the storage column, has shelves in a choice of 18 finishes: grey smoked glass, walnut veneer, satin white/argile/perle lacquer, plus the 13 ‘to-order’ lacquer colours (rouge, bleu, bleu lavande, chocolat, mastic, noir, azur, brique, éléphant, moutarde, ranger, plomb and bleu nuit).
The 4-drawer chest is composed of 3 identical drawers topped with a narrower upper drawer. As an option, the latter may be finished in a different lacquer colour to the rest of the piece.
The 6-drawer chest is composed of 5 identical drawers topped with a nattower upper drawer. As an option, the latter may be finished in a different lacquer colour to the rest of the piece.
The bench/TV unit is available in 2 versions, either with a cushion or with a lacquered top. It comprises 2 flap doors with 2 lower glass shelves (could be used as hallway storage).
The cushion in high resilience polyurethane Bultex foam 53 kg/m3 – 6.3 kPa is covered in Steelcut trio 3 (choice of 53 colours).
