Inverted Cabinet + Reverse Drawers = Imploding Furniture

Titled ‘Psych’, and much like her Inception Chair, this piece by Vivian Chiu definitely twists perception as through an inside-out look at interior and exterior, surfaces and shelves, slots and drawers.

The crafty concept draws on multiple woods to make its point Рa counterpoint, as it were, to the white backs and sides of the space into which each drawer slides Рspecies include Poplar, Plywood, Walnut, Cherry, Padauk, Cedar, Mahogany and various veneers.

The total size is just 12″ x 24″ x 8″ though it feels bigger somehow, perhaps due to the ‘explosive’ look of this unique unit of unfolding furniture. Unfortunately, the seams reduce the potency of the visual effect, making it appear less solid that it could be for maximum impact when closed.
