The exoskeleton is usually only seen on creepy-crawlies with shells and armor to protect them in David Attenborough’s world of insect warfare.

By extracting secondary features and elevating them to a primary status, he has reworked the visual role of each jigsaw piece giving structures like this wardrobe a completely new dimension. The wardrobe appears to float within the boundaries of its exoskeleton echoing the emptiness inside. The pure, dark wood levitates inside, like a jewel set within the bands of a ring, the thin, wiry grip of the bones contrasting with the dense, rich wood it cradles.
