Bigfoot® is a patented system, 100% Made in Italy and unique all over the world available in two versions: Architectural, thought to be integrated into the wall during the planning and the renovation of the house, and Interior, which easily integrated itself into an interior project, dialoguing with extreme flexibility with other furnishing and finishing already present within the rooms. Both versions offer a multiplicity of configurations and don’t need the building permission, speeding and simplifying the installation.  The new models of Bigfoot® are renewed as well as in some technical and aesthetic details, such as the sliding system, the weather-strips, the finishing, also due to the availability of new formats of 60 cm ready to be integrated into the furniture systems already present in the living or in the kitchen, allowing to increase the available space.  In addition the modules are interchangeable among each other and are also superimposable, in order to make the house dynamic during the day and adaptable to the specific needs of the moment. «The Bigfoot® literally transforms the space in which it is installed, letting it becoming dynamic and functional to the moment of the day» explains Giovanni Maggioni, CEO of Protek®. «It is perfectly demonstrated by the new Bigfoot® Smart-working, which we have conceived in response to the new needs emerged during Covid emergency. The ‘forced’ work at home highlighted how the majority of houses nowadays are not compatible with the working needs of having a dedicated and reserved space, where you can concentrate or organize online meetings. The module Smart-working allows all these situations. It is fully equipped with all that you need to set up a workstation with a table-desk, shelves for documents, plug set in order to connect the pc and the other devices which should be necessary while working».

Talking about finishing, Bigfoot® modules are available in high superior quality HPL laminate as well as Fenix, the innovative material with an opaque surface, anti-fingerprint and soft to touch, which guarantees also a low light reflectivity.

Thermal reparability gives this material the ability to regenerate itself from any surface micro-scratches. Finally, thanks to the exclusive non-porous external layer, it is simple to clean and is ideal for contact with food.

Thanks to its numerous compositions, from the more traditional and practical such as shoe racks, bookcases, tables, beds, storages, coat closets, broom closets, to the “smarter” applications such as drink closets, elements for the fitness and entertainment and, starting from today, also for smart working, Bigfoot® is the new format addressed to become more and more common used into newly built houses, designed to have the furniture integrate into walls or applied against an existing wall, which appear and disappear into the rooms following the needs of the new metropolitan citizens, to the way of living and moments of the day.
