The Vortex Cabinet is as much a work of art and a puzzle as it is an item of furniture. Covered in a veneer of Sycamore and Santos rosewood, the marquetry design challenges the perceptions of a usual cabinet. An optical illusion with seemingly no discernible doors or drawers, beautiful in its own right but deceiving in its initial impression of functionality.
With buttons hidden within the marquetry, the secret doors can be opened revealing a bird's eye maple interior dyed in a statement red. The deception of the piece continues with hidden drawers and compartments which maximise the internal space ingeniously and playfully adding personality.
It does not open in a conventional manner - instead hidden drawers reveal further secret drawers which open in ingenious ways, thus combining challenging and intricate cabinet making with the intellectual impulse of op art ie that of subverting reality. The edges of drawers and doors are hardly apparent because of the mitre finishes and the fact that their contours mirror those of the marquetry pattern.
Indeed once you discover the way in which the piece opens (which is not obvious), there is further disorientation within as the drawers are lined in surprising textures with use of vibrant colours and materials such as gold leaf and padded velvet, thus adding to the overall sensual experience.
Products may slightly differ from the original images due to natural properties and handmade craftsmanship. Variations, such as wood grain, and colour, add to the uniqueness of each piece. Rest assured, these differences contribute to the authentic charm of your purchase, maintaining the high-quality standards we uphold.
