Project Description

This project re-questions and researches on the pre-existing typology of the cabinet. The doors are removed and Kermès interior becomes part of its overall image. The inner surfaces are thicker and differently finished, like a precious object made out of Chinese or Japanese lacquer. Its dimensions and analogy turn this cabinet into autonomous furniture with more than one use.
