Secret of Night
Client : Art of Secret
In the same line as Mémoire du Vin, this cherry-wood nightstand was both created and designed by FiveCo. The mechanical workshop, leather-works, cabinet-maker, designer and engineering firm are all based in Switzerland.
These five crafts have been incorporated into a nightstand that has the particularity of containing a hidden compartment in one of its legs. The drawer is like a capsule divided into three individually lit compartments.
The drawer can be opened through the use of a digital fingerprint reader found in another leg of the nightstand. The complex mechanics and electronics were built into the design of the table with precision, so as to better conceal its secrets.
This is a variation on the theme of the classic XIXth century hidden drawer. It is also a momentum for the new Art of Secret brand.
