Theca constitutes a logical continuation of our work with Magis and the manufacturing process of metal stamping, a language which we had already explored with the Steelwood project. We find fascination by the fact of turning a thin sheet of metal into a rigid structural piece with a considerable punch - but even more fascinated by the challenge of creating domestic pleasant objects with a technology usually used for industrial parts.

The very basic typology of the Theca sideboard can be found in all forms, from different eras dating back to the 18th century and with a great appearance in mid century’s Scandinavian design - we tried to find a contemporary yet simple and unobtrusive language. The body (frame) of the sideboard is composed of stamped aluminium plate sides and shelves in solid wood or in veneered MDF, the back and the sliding doors are made of (cut and bent) aluminium plate. The construction is simple - visible screws fix the solid wooden boards to the punched aluminium plate sides. Two tones are available for the anodized finish of the aluminium parts - black or natural. The shelves come in European cherry in black stained ash or in walnut.
