Storage Black Sugi closet by Piero Lissoni for Porro

Dezeen Showroom: Italian brand Porro has updated its Storage closet system designed by architect Piero Lissoni with new finishes and doors that intend to give it more architectural presence.

The Storage Black Sugi closet has a black, vein-marked surface that aims to reference the ancient Japanese wood-burning technique known as shou sugi ban.

The finish is among several new features added to the Storage closet systems, which according to Porro, are meant to provide “an architectural interplay of full and empty compartments, reflecting the desires and needs of its users”.

Another new addition to the product is wireless lighting, which is entirely embedded within the shelving so as not to interrupt its graphic design.

The Storage closets can now also be fitted with Glide doors, which provide a clean and striking architectural detail.

Rather than being made to standard sizes, Storage is now made to order, enabling freedom of composition and reducing waste.
