Creative and beautifully made, the Alato Cabinet makes a lasting impression with its striking design that features both refined artistic accents and organic details. Students Jumphol Socharoentham and Pakawat Vijaykadga created this cabinet prototype for their final project in industrial design at the King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) in Bangkok, Thailand. Inspired by the beauty of feathers, the two young designers developed the eye-catching pattern adorning the two doors and completed it using an intricate construction that uses various types of materials weaved to achieve a shingle effect. Made of solid ash, ash veneer, MDF board, and metal, the Alato Cabinet displays impressive craftsmanship and attention to detail. The paint finish enhances the fish scale pattern and it is applied in different hues to create a gradient effect, starting from unfinished ash veneer, to light gray and cool muted blue. The result is a distinct piece of furniture that would be a focal point in any room. For now, the Alato Cabinet remains just a prototype, but the future certainly looks bright for its creators.
