The Safe Cabinet Design from Scott Jarvie

UK-based designer Scott Jarvie reveals his latest product, the safe cabinet design – an exclusive closing mechanism with fully adjustable shelving systems. Influenced by the whimsy and fantasy of pop culture, this piece aspires to be an object of value for homeowners — and a delightful twist on traditional safety vaults.

The cabinet is operated by rotating the central hand wheel to retract the bolts

Originally, mechanical bank vaults are elegantly designed and engineered but their system of functioning demands that their mechanisms be concealed from public view. Therefore, Scott Jarvie wanted to re-question the typical perception of value and security in our society through the safe cabinet. The ‘theatre’ of the piece lies in the motion of the mechanism as it is turned via the central hand wheel. A continuous rotation will alternate the system between locked and unlocked positions, thus creating a mesmerizing visual effect.

Typically, Scott Jarvie’s designs are founded on a deep respect for context, process, and material. Indeed, the use of light-colored materials for the safe cabinet (hand cut wood joints, stainless steel, aluminum) creates a seamless blend between traditional and contemporary design. The product is generously proportioned and its height-adjustable shelves offer a considerable flexibility of storage.
