This “Good Vibrations” cabinet by Italian designer Ferruccio Laviani is a Photoshop effect brought to life.
Created for design house Fratelli Boffi, the intricately distorted cabinet was carved from oak by a programmable CNC machine, according to Dezeen.
“Echoes of faraway places and Oriental elements are glimpsed in the ‘disorienting’ design of this storage unit, which seems to have been ‘deformed’ by a strong jolt or by swaying movements,” according to a statement by the designer. “Although it appears to depart from the aesthetics of the past, in fact it draws upon ancient knowledge in the use of carving and fine wood workmanship.”
The mind-bending storage unit will be shown at the Salone Del Mobile expo in Milan in April.
Laviani’s previous works have also combined the old and the new, to cheeky effect; check out the Evolution Dresser and the (W)hole Desk below, from Laviani’s site:
