Italian designer Daniele Cristiano has produced a multipurpose storage unit that is shaped to look like a vintage ammunition chest.
Cristiano has developed the sideboard for furnishings brand Formabilio.
Its name Calibro is derived from the word calibre, which refers to the inner diameter or bore of a gun barrel and is also employed in Italian to describe a vernier caliper measuring instrument.
The prolonged, lower sideboard has spaces minimize out from the centre and at each and every end for storage.

3 orange leather belt straps wrap about the ends of the chest, which are created to seem like the buckles found on old wooden ammunition trunks that had been used in the first planet war. It can be used as a sideboard, a Tv stand or as a table.
“The decayed purpose of this furniture piece turns into present day and Calibro turns into media unit in the living room,” stated Cristiano.
“It can also be a storage bench at the entrance, the place you can place books, ornaments, vases and numerous objects, or in the centre of the space as a coffee table.”
The sideboard is produced from sound spruce wood, which is hand coated with a normal oil finish.
“Calibro has simple lines and robust contrasts in between components,” Cristiano explained. “The general result is an original decor that combines functionality, present day style and a hint of retro fashion.”
Other furnishings designed for Formabilio is the Ivetta rocking chair by Giancarlo Cutello, the Bloemi lamp by Mario Alessiani and a floor lamp by Yu Ito.
