As a designer I once hated wood… funny how things change over 20+ years!
The Refraction Cabinet was the result of a commission for a very particular client who was embarking on the building of a new apartment in Port Melbourne. The architecture of the building responded to the qualities of the bayside location and provided me with some strong design cues to reference.
This particular cabinet is something very special. Made by hand in the hills of Lilydale in Tasmania’s North East, the cabinet is made entirely in Huon Pine and Blackwood for a striking contrast when opened. The stunning simplicity of the design allowed use to dig deep into the timber stocks and make use of an incredible piece of Bird’s Eye figured Huon Pine – arguably the most revered of all Timbers.
LIMITED TO JUST 12 CABINETS TO BE MADE. THIS IS THE ‘ARTISTS PROOF’.
