#182062 - Modular Semi-Open Wall Tall Cabinet
This project was done with a client couple who's our long-term supporter, that we hold so much respects to because of their love of wood and the planet and their pursuit of quality pieces. As their family doesn’t watch television, we have an entire wall to play with, to design a cabinet that has both storage and decorative purposes.
This is a centrepiece that you can see from every point around the house. And also this place in front of the sofa, that's why we kept the design to be semi-open, so it lightens the bulky feel of solid wood, and reduce the pressure of having a wall-tall shelving when you sit on the sofa.
Next up is the sliding doors. We all have things we like to show and hide.
Things to show - books, souvenirs from previous trips, bottles of wines, memorable photos
Things needed to be sealed and hidden - loose paper, take-away menu, batteries, nail clipper, tissues, newspaper and magazine... etc
The point of having these sliding doors is, entirely up to you to plan how you want things to display and organise. This idea is like one stone kills two birds - combine storage and display functions as a whole.
The piece was made of four modular parts which can be assembled all together or for separate use. It's over 2m height when they are assembled, and it definitely needs to be secured and wall-mounted for safety reason. Like the previous projects, we love about the modular design is it gives flexibility and versatility. It doesn't have to be fix-say to one form. You never know, when you're going to move to a new place or have a new family member joining. These modular pieces can be assembled and disassembled upon your choice and needs, and that really makes our vision about 'built to last a lifetime' to come true.
