In collaboration with LileSadi we created a cabinet that is not only a functional organizer, but also a platform for a beautiful material collage – or how we like to see it, a physical and material still life.
Their cabinet features two boxes cleverly juxtaposed and interconnected, creating interesting and functional spaces. The boxes are designed with beautifully milled lines all around the cabinet. They create a subtle pattern and rhythm, serving as rails for several different materials. These materials were carefully selected and hand-crafted and each tells its own narrative: a circular screen-printed mirror, a perforated recycled metal square, a brass triangle with rain drops from Rotterdam and a hand-made cobalt blue porcelain circle. These geometric textured shapes are made to feel, experience and create a sensorial poetic cityscape on the cabinet.
However, their function is not just an aesthetic one, they also add value on a functional level. For instance, they can be used to lean a book against, hang jewellery on, display a plant, or store away your gloves. The user decides how to display it, as the option to attach it to the wall in 360 degrees makes it modular. The combination of the structural proportion of the boxes with the material collages creates an interaction and play with your own artwork at home. Suddenly your artifacts look more valuable and are part of what looks like a classical Dutch still life painting, the concept that gives roots to the name ‘Daily gems’.
