Faktum minimalist

Faktum wall cabinet in various size and Grip handle

Description: I wanted a clean geometrical minimalist full height storage unit that can fit my existing audio system as well. With detailed measurement of the wall space in terms of the length and ceiling height and with the help of my 3d software, I found the best fit after several configuration basing on the cabinets assortment of sizes.

All cabinets were secured firmly between each other with the cabinet connector provided with the cabinet packages as well as to the back concrete wall. Do take note that since I did not use any legs to raise the cabinet, do get some furniture scratch protector ( preferably hard plastic type) to raise the cabinet a little to allow the door to open smoothly.

This project may not be considered a hack, but Faktum cabinet do provide ready solution at half the price of a custom made one (at least here in Singapore).In a few years time, the cabinet can be taken down and reconfigure for another area, doesn’t that save you a lot of money, and our mother earth for recycling our furniture.

    May I know what is the height for the bottom taller cabinets?

    I’m in Singapore and I intend to have a similar config but I can’t seem to find the Faktum cabinet taller than the dimension H92 x D37. The bottom cabinet in the picture looks evidently taller than that.

    Is it possible to get Faktum cabinets in the U.S? The Akurum are either 30 & 36″ wide, and I need 33.5″ (800mm) wide cabinets – like the Faktum line. How can I do this?

    Very helpful information,Nice Cabinet, i plan to put one like this at my place.

    @Zlinko, the Akurum wall cabinets are just a shade over 13″, which is actually not as deep as the Faktum wall cab at 14.5″.

    Hi, great, is there any similar in spain-Madrid?

  8. Zlinko says:

    @Jules I was looking at the Akurum but they seem so deep.. in the pics in the post the cabinets seem much slimmer.

    I’m looking to do something like this post in my back laundry room.

  9. Jules says:

    Zlinko, Faktum is similar to Akurum in the US.

  10. Zlinko says:

    It seems as if you cant get Faktum within the US… is there an alternative or something similar?
