Cu3o Cabinet...


Originally designed and modeled over twenty years ago in New York during my time at Parsons, it was prototyped in London at full-scale during my final year at the AA, and eventually built into its (for now) final form the other month here in Doha... 

The Cu3o Cabinet consists of a set of proportionally synchronized wooden boxes with industrial strength Velcro on its top and bottom (and some select interior) surfaces. This allows it to be assembled into a variety of, often surprisingly 'just wrong' looking, compositions... 

The design will have its commencement exhibition at the upcoming Home Sweet Home Exhibition in Finland's Ekenas (the 'a' should have two dots on top), or Tammisaari in Finnish, organized by Pro Artibus. The exhibition has been curated by Mikael Nygard, and will be on display from May 25 to October 7, 2012...
