Fireplace Storage Units by Davide Tonizzo

In a collection inspired by Italian cities, designer Davide Tonizzo combines storage pieces with a fireplace. Manufactured by Bühler Furniture, the units make up part of the Midtown Collection which brings the coziness of a fireplace to the practicality of storage, making these the perfect double duty pieces for your living room.



The pieces utilize a completely safe, virtual flame, allowing the hearth to sit within the wooden elements that surround it.



The Esquilino has curvy shapes that mimic the twisty streets of Rome. The top cantilevers over the flame creating a cozy unit that can sit in the middle of a space or against the wall.



The Murazzi (a series of riverside arcaded areas in Turin) features an inverted trapezoid that houses the fireplace. Combining white and walnut, the piece references an automotive aesthetic paying homage to Turin’s car-making history.
