Red Heaviness

cupboard for washroom

I create a modified and functional version of an existing sink cupboard, which takes up too much room and prevents an easy removal of the bath products. It is important to me, to design and manufacture a functional, space-saving and unadorned alternative.

I have to find a solution for the following issues: The box shape and the folding doors narrow the entrance with its 0,5 meters width even more.
