One designer saw objects once used for war and converted them into versatile pieces with her ammunition-inspired furniture.

In a collaboration with Formabilio, Daniele Cristiano created 'Calibro,' a sideboard that draws inspiration from an ammunition chest that was once used in the Great War. It is astounding that a piece that was once a container for war materials can now be something that is so versatile and stylish in the form of this sideboard.

The piece is both very functional and practical as it can be used for storage or seating in various rooms. It can easily be a bench in a foyer or a media unit for a TV room. The ammunition-inspired furniture piece blends modern design with solid spruce wood with an oil finish.
