Sibora, designed by Lars Villiger and Andreas Pfister for girsberger, is a sideboard-come-buffet; it’s a storage shelf that easily converts into a multi-functional audio-video cabinet; it’s a clever, modular piece with quintessential Scandinavian styling, and it’s just what the doctor ordered for today’s flexible work-live environments.
Sibora’s Clean, Classic Aesthetic is Matched by its Unparalleled Flexibility
Looking at Sibora in one of its several incarnations, one would be hard pressed to imagine it could convert to another, such does it appear as a solid, expertly-styled single-use kind of piece. Nor does one easily envision it in its fledgling state; that is to say, un-assembled in its component parts: four L-shaped structural supports, three shelves, two differently-sized drawers, and one sliding panel front.
The piece is designed to morph from the aforementioned state into its many eminently useful configurations with the slightest degree of user effort. This allows the changes dramatized on the girsberger website—the removal of the top shelf that converts it into an entertainment center; the addition of the sliding panel that hides files while conserving easy access; the re-location of the L-supports to allow un-interrupted displays of books and other items one wants to be on view.
Sibora features solid wood construction and painted anodized aluminum supports/sliding hardware. Available woods include beech heartwood, ash heartwood, oak, elm, American walnut, and European walnut.
