Wooden Cabinet “Explodes” Into Unique Kinetic Design

View all 7 Photos

Designed by Sebastian Errazuriz, the “Explosion Cabinet” is a kinetic design that plays with a classic technique, the sliding dovetail, and expands it into new territory. The imaginative sideboard features natural wood and glass, simple materials which let the shape take the spotlight. The furnishing appears normal in its neutral, closed position and out-of-this-world when the wooden rails are pulled to the end of their reach. The cabinet is a central piece in Sebastian Errazuriz’s debut solo exhibition, “Look Again,” beginning September 6, 2014, at the Carnegie Museum of Art.
