The Stilt Console's Precariousness Gives it a Playful Appeal

The designer of the Stilt Console puts forth a charming image in likening his piece to a standing bird. These creatures can appear to hold impossible postures on a single spindly leg, yet they always manage to maintain their grounding.

Similarly, Marco Guazzini's eccentric dresser rises up on three supports, different from the usual four that you'll find beneath most furnishings. While the legs look to be evenly spaced for maximum stability, the body of the object has been assembled askew.

The enchanting chest of drawers is made up of three seemingly separate parts, each containing a single storage compartment. The gorgeous grey oak pieces are different sizes so the stacked arrangement of the Stilt Console has an unavoidable and lighthearted asymmetry.
