The Wave Cabinet
It may look like a regular box at some point, but it sure isn’t. Made from thin lacquered Baltic Birch slats, assembled together invisibly with metal hinges, the Wave cabinet designed by New York based designer and artist Sebastian Errazuriz, is definitely not the usual piece of furniture we are used to.
The main idea behind the concept is taking usual objects and giving them new meanings, new interpretations, and new ways of interacting with them. Thanks to the flexible joints of each of the structural pieces, the simple act of opening the cabinet is being transformed into an amazing experience.
As the designer has stated, his work is meant to invite people to “look at one of the simplest forms of furniture design and to forget that we’re talking about furniture, instead to see it as a way of breaking a box.” I’m not sure about breaking things, but I can easily imagine myself “playing” with it for hours, like a piano, only with silent music.
