The main characteristic of the Bernois sideboard is the geometric volumes that mark out its doors.
Bernois is the model of the modern sideboard, focused on volumetric and formal simplicity, and enriched thanks to the refinement of a number of small stylistic variations. Roberto Paoli's design is based on the perceptive effects generated by a slight raised relief pattern of the doors: a sequence of vertical “folds” that generate an iridescent interplay of chiaroscuro. The appearance of the furniture thus changes according to the light and the observer's point of view, in line with an aesthetic idea that interprets the dynamic style of contemporary life.
An interesting experimentation is at the base of the collaboration between Roberto Paoli and Bonaldo that began in 2014. The architect and interior designer brings a contribution to the company focused on a design style where the creative process melds with consolidated technical and material performance knowledge, in order to innovate and to give shape to products with an extremely clean formal look. Together with Bonaldo, Paoli focuses on objects with great formal study, experimentation and innovation behind them. Paoli's Cop table, which was presented at the Salone del Mobile 2017, won the prestigious “Good Design Award 2017”.
