Even in the age of digitalisation, they still exist, the custodians of law and order in our homes: closed chests of drawers, cupboards, sideboards in their low and high versions, bookshelves and furniture with drawers. Because even in an increasingly digital world, we still need open shelves and cabinets to present our collectors’ pieces – and storage space to protect our belongings from unwanted eyes. Whether people spend their days in the virtual world or are still attached to their material possessions, both types want to achieve an uncluttered look.
