Dorothee Becker's Hand: A Modern Wall Bedside Unit

A Tribute to Uten.Silo, Redesigned for the Modern Home

Dorothee Becker’s Hand is a wall unit designed by Nataliya Naymark, paying homage to the iconic Uten.Silo. Originally created by Dorothee Becker in 1969, this modernized version incorporates new technologies to enhance the user experience. Originally conceived as a wall bedside cabinet, it serves as a practical addition to any room and interior. The introduction of a wall module allows for the use of a new primary color, blue, and/or recyclable plastic.

Dorothee Becker’s Hand stands out with its unique properties and strengths. Designed for the modern home environment, it integrates various technologies to improve functionality. The unit features a wireless charger, USB portals, a rotating light, and a dimmer. These additions enhance convenience and adaptability to different scenarios.

One of the notable aspects of Dorothee Becker’s Hand is its use of leftover plastic from production, resulting in limited edition objects with a unique color scheme. This sustainable approach adds to the design's appeal and aligns with the growing demand for eco-friendly solutions.

With a focus on modern life scenarios, Dorothee Becker’s Hand seamlessly integrates the necessary functions. It serves as a wall unit in the bedroom, but its versatility extends to working spaces and kitchens. The unit's compact size ensures it doesn't take up much space, making it suitable for various interiors.

Made of ABS plastic, Dorothee Becker’s Hand incorporates metal hooks and clips. The unit's wireless charger reduces clutter by eliminating the need for multiple wires. It also features a large container for storing bulky items and a smaller container for jewelry and other small objects. The inclusion of a rotating light allows for different positioning options, while the dimmer provides customizable lighting scenarios.

Measuring W500mm x D50mm x H550mm, Dorothee Becker’s Hand offers a practical and aesthetically pleasing solution for organizing and storing essentials in the modern home.
