CONCEPT : first launched in 2008, the Coplan sideboard is being updated for 2016. The way in which its two coplanar doors open has been retained : side by side when closed, they pivot on opening and slide one in front of the other. Since there is no clearance required when opening, one can have a 200 or 230 cm long sideboard with just 2 sliding doors instead of 3, 4 or 5 hinged doors. The gain, aesthetically speaking, is one of simplicity and purity of line.
In addition, the lines of the Coplan 2 sideboard have been lightened and new materials (walnut, ceramic stoneware) have been brought in to complement the existing lacquer finish.
QUALITY OF MANUFACTURE & NEW FINISHES: the sides have been slimmed down from a thickness of 38 mm to just 16 mm. The tops have been slimmed down from 38 mm to 12 mm.
The original finishes of satin white or argile lacquer are still available; however, it is now possible to associate these with a top in white, white marble-effect or metallic anthracite-coloured ceramic stoneware. Coloured to its core, ceramic stoneware offers a surface which is 30 % harder than granite. Its properties of resistance to scratches, stains and heat shocks are exceptional, making it particularly suitable for use as a sideboard top which will be called on to accommodate a whole range of different items.
A new finish has also been added: walnut veneered doors with 45° fern motif and walnut veneered sides with vertical grain. In this case, the top is offered in either chocolate lacquer or the 3 ceramic stoneware finishes.
The base is in white or argile lacquered steel with zamak door buttons lacquered to match; or in chromed steel with chromed zamak door buttons.
