This handmade cabinet, constructed out of sculptural painted wood slats, will be produced as a limited run of twelve pieces. Individually crafted slats that cover the sides, doors, front and back, all expand and become “flexible” to accommodate and create many different configurations – from simplistic to extreme.

The frame is designed to house each controlled piece while maintaining a clean aesthetic on both the interior and exterior of the cabinet. Glass shelves float inside to retain an open sight line and are the only material to contrast the black painted wood used for the rest of the cabinet.
