From the hand of the Italian designer Marco Guazzini, the Flamingo game console arrives on the market. With a simple and interesting dynamic design, the console has two drawers that slide across the width of the cabinet to configure different designs with a single element.

The S-shaped figure created when the drawers are opposite refers to Marco Guazzini giving the design his name because its curved profile reminds it of the shape created by the flamingo neck.

With the possibility of configuring different volumes, Marco Guazzini plays around phased forms, empty spaces and their contrast with solids, as well as the flexibility these attributes provide given the flexibility of the elements.
The console has a width of 90 centimeters, a depth of 36 centimeters and a total height of 123 centimeters. The support structure is in painted steel and the movable drawers, the core and the main characters of the design have a solid oak structure with a very soft blue lacquered finish.
