A cylindrical and modular storage cabinet, the Combi-center no longer stands against a wall, but is set up in the living room. Its freedom of use is total, its configuration and functions can vary and evolve: in this way the Combi-center can be transformed into a coffee table, each superposed cylinder then remains independent and is assembled depending on needs. It is characteristic of Joe Colombo’s experimentation that developed modular furniture with multiple flexible uses.
