The No. 216 Sideboard is playfully eccentric. It might have a rectangular silhouette that is typical of such furniture pieces, but the similarities essentially end there. What at first appears to be a modern block pattern on the sideboard's doors is actually the individual doors and drawers that open up into variously sized compartments.

Created by Swedish designer Jesper Ståhl for Voice, a furniture manufacturer based in Sweden and part of the Lammhults Design Group, the eccentric doors to the No. 216 Sideboard are inspired by A-series paper standards, from A0 to A8. Colorful and quirky, the No. 216 Sideboard is available in three different colorways: shades of green, shades of purple and all-white. It is made out of wood veneer.
