The ALFAMA wardrobe, designed by Siza, offers a solution for modern living by maximizing space efficiency. With its unique design, it caters to both small and larger living spaces.

Due to a simple system based on a metal piece placed crosswise, clothes are not hanged next to each other, but behind each other. That creates a little cabinet depth of 51 cm and prevents it from taking much space in the room. 

On the other hand, its taller than usual expression lies in the fact that Siza wanted to have a dimension that could easily keep a classic long trench coat without the need to fold it.

The open top and back of the wardrobe creates constant air ventilation, which allows freshness.

On the bottom of the wardrobe there are two shelves, great for shoes, hand bags, boxes or any other small items that need to be kept.
