The range of Operative Columns is enriched with new modularity and design solutions; in addition to the Operative Columns currently in the range, there will be an unusual solution with a depth of 61.7 cm for alignment with standard columns. It will feature the same mechanism and will take up 93.8 cm in width. Inside it is made up of the open base with wooden drawers and a pull-out stainless steel top. This modularity does not allow for the use of electric appliances, which, however, is still compatible with other dimensional solutions.

Design R&D

The Operative Column concept is also declined in the open version, so with neither mechanism nor door; functional and very scenographic niches can be created which, combined with the solid doors, make the whole composition more dynamic. The open Operative Columns come in 3 widths and are aligned in height with the storage columns of the Dada collection. They offer a practical top for small electrical appliances or tools, open drawers at the bottom and the top part fitted with shelves and back panels.
