The Wave Cabinet by Artist and designer Sebastian ErraZuriz is the
new creation of his series of functional sculptures, which embody his
translation of craftsmanship and mastery of material into fine art.
Wave cabinet opens with true delicacy and beauty; each individual slat
pulls along the following much like a paper fan. With multiple
configurations which allow for various options of aperture, the artist
has re-engineered the familiar process of opening and closing, into
rotating and undulating adaptations.
The ‘Wave cabinet reinvents
the paradigm of cabinet as a re-visualization of the domestic, quotidian
objects that surround us. Like his previously surprising sculptural
furniture, Sebastian invites us to break open the box as a literal
metaphor for reminding the viewer to stop and look again.
