Present­ing the Fariba Side­board from e15, a time­less creation by Philipp Mainzer, crafted between 1999 to 2002 as part of an elegant series of storage pieces. Each piece in this collec­tion is a cele­bra­tion of the aesthetic beauty of solid wood, metic­u­lously brought to life through the precise arrange­ment of the mate­ri­al’s natural grain and stri­a­tions. The Fariba Side­board not only offers prac­ti­cal storage but also serves as a sculp­tural focal point in any inte­rior where it resides.

The Fariba Side­board is composed of .75″ thick solid wood, featur­ing two or three door panels inge­niously engi­neered with unseen milled grooves and aluminum strips, ensur­ing stabil­ity without the need for visible support frames. Behind these doors, you’ll discover thought­fully orga­nized storage spaces, includ­ing small and large areas. The small area is concealed behind a single front panel door, while the large area is tucked behind two front panel doors. Each storage area is further subdi­vided with a shelf for added functionality.

To comple­ment the wood compo­si­tion, the simple recti­lin­ear base frame is crafted from .75″ thick squared tubular brushed stain­less steel, beau­ti­fully mitered at 45 degrees to create four right angles, enhanc­ing the overall aesthetic.

The Fariba Side­board is avail­able in two sizes in your choice of north­ern Euro­pean oiled oak or walnut. To explore finish options and discover the perfect fit for your space, please don’t hesi­tate to contact us at 800.886.0867.
