Herman Miller Domino ™ Sideboard, Mixed Storage, 4 Units
Isay Weinfeld, 2014
Most storage units have interiors fitted to decades-old proportions. Recognizing this problem, Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld set about creating a smartly edited array of modules that efficiently answer all of today’s needs. “We emptied our office cupboards, put everything on the floor, and asked ourselves, ‘What are the ideal sizes to store these things?’ The printers, the binders, the pencils, even the waste bins,” he says. With the correct scale established, he then went to work designing a system for combining modules so they could adapt to the appropriate heights for a credenza, sideboard, or desk.
Creating Domino from the inside out by no means meant Weinfeld neglected the exterior. Beautiful detailing and craftsmanship are everywhere apparent: from the artful veneer application to the mitered corners. Domino is finished on all sides and can serve as a divider between a living and dining room as well as in an open plan office and is available in 26- and 40-inch heights, two-, three-, or four-units wide, and in six formatting options. Finish options include walnut, santos palisander, and ebony, with chrome or satin chrome trim with a solid white ash interior.
