Lexington by Poliform, Design Jean-Marie Massaud

It belongs on equal terms to the living and bedroom areas; it fits into various spaces in the home with discretion and extreme adaptability; it improves the functional quality of rooms thanks to countless elements for hiding, storing and displaying. Lexington is the Poliform system with infinite possibilities and virtues, packed into a design concept that is as simple as it is effective. With a minimal, almost ethereal aesthetic.

Designed by Jean-Marie Massaud in close collaboration with the R&D division of Poliform, Lexington features aluminium uprights on which to attach shelves, drawers, chests, cabinets with hinged or fold-back doors, rods for coat hangers and much more, to create flexible bookcases in the living area and spacious wardrobes in the bedroom zone.

The architectural character of this furnishing system is clear, defining or even creating vertical frameworks in space: it develops through a dual configuration, with posts attached to the wall or the ceiling, where the latter solution permits creation of double-face compositions accessed from both sides. Like a work of architecture, it stands out in space in relation to the surrounding décor context (thanks to its essential styling) and natural light, filtered through its primary components.

In this geometric sequence of vertical and horizontal segments (with no limits on height or the number of shelves), games of full and empty zones are developed, adding playfulness but also dynamism to the whole. The outfitting becomes the distinctive signal of the use of the system: softer and more rounded in the living area, more regular and squared in the bedroom zone.

The materials and finishes add further touches of variety: steel, various types of wood, glass, LED lighting, techno-covers facings, fabric for the Code paneling that can be easily combined with the Lexington system. In its light, flexible essence, the Lexington system becomes the fil rouge of the entire domestic setting, through a coherent, continuous language that generates a new interpretation of a ‘total look.’
