Open 45 (Credenza) by Adam Friedman
2018 - 2019, Golden A' Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award Winner
The inspiration for the Open 45 was to provide a greater ease of use and retrieval for stored items.
The Open 45 is designed to enhance and encourage the usability of stored items. This design functionality focuses on ease of use as the items sit at a 45 degree angle and comfortably 'look up' at the user. This fully customizable piece features modular shelves and dividers, a hidden cord channel and removable vented side panels for interior air circulation. The shelves rest on vibration isolation material ensuring music played on this credenza is clear and crisp.
Design Challenges
To provide a modern storage solution which enables the ultimate ease of use in a clean and individualized way.
Production Technology
This design was born out of necessity. The designer and his family were seeking a more functional way to display their books, records and turntable. Items stored away in a traditional credenza tend to fall into the realm of 'out of sight, out of mind.' The open top and 45 degree angle of this piece works to solve this issue. The design also addresses the need for personalization with a modular setup including movable shelves and dividers.
