Scandin’hack Corridor piece of furniture

Materials: 3x Faktum, 2 Applad doors and oak

Description: This corridor piece of furniture is the result of a 2-step thinking :
- functional for the inside : using Faktum elements for kitchen
- external shape : Applad doors and oak corpus

First, the depth of Faktum elements has been reduced, as well as the height of the Applad doors

Then, the smallest Faktum has been hand-painted in dark grey (not so easy, but nice result finally)

To finish, the corpus has been made with pieces of oak and varnished.

    This is usually called a “fauxdenza” It was called that by Anna Dorfman.

  3. Erm.. The ‘blue shade’ is just standard issue IKEA peel-off protection for lacquered surfaces

    Hi Esteban, I see you’re from Strasbourg. Where did you get you’re Oak from? I need some for a future project that also includes some Ikea parts.

    Love the blue shade :) this looks like a very useful piece of furniture!

  6. How do you open those doors? Must be hard to grip with that outer “frame” protruding so much? Or did you use one of those push-to-open magnet thingies (I think they are available for the Besta series)?

    • Esteban says:

      Actually there is a mistake in the description : it’s not Applad doors, but Arsta. And these Arsta doors have a built-in handgrip, as you can see on the picture number 2.
      And it’s very easy to open the doors : more than 3cm space with the “outer frame”.
