The new drawer system, opening in 2 different directions.
Designed by NOSIGNER
The name CARTESIA was inspired by the Cartesian coordinate system, due to its unique property.
Cartesia’s drawers can be opened in two different directions, making it the perfect piece of furniture for angles.
Its particular design shift from the traditional modus operanti as you can now open and use all the drawers at the same time.
Cartesia is the perfect symbiosis of traditional technique and modern design.

The tradition of the ship-carpenters from Tokushima, at the time called Awa, started more than 400 years ago.
After the Meiji era, craftsmen in Tokushima inherited the ship-carpenters' precise technique to build furniture (e.g. vanity tables) and became the finest producers of wood products in Japan.
Designers managed to create innovative products, using the traditional technique from Awa.
This tradition is therefore now available in your daily life.
