SAND SENSES CUPBOARD<< previous | next >>

The cupboard "sand senses" is inspired by geometrical shapes which's materials are made of sand and which's surface opens senses when touched.

 

Sand seems to have no limit - it comes from earth. Burnt sand makes the Murano glass as transparent it became famous for. And cement incorporates more than one type of sand one comes from the river and the other one has been transformed through a chemical process. The results are all touchable as the woods which's soft surface is due to the final step of wood elaboration when the material is sandblasted and treated by oil-wax only.

 

 

Geometrical sand shapes can be found in the legs that are made of concrete and in the doors as on the top where the openings are made of coloured Murano glass. With its four colourful doors, two drawers and several shelves this piece turns out to be a very aesthetical and practical cupboard adapted for both storing and showcase use.
