Surreal Storage: Curved Cabinets, Dressers & Bookcases


Like something straight out of a surrealist painting, story or film, thiese creative furniture collections are the work of craft artist Vincent Thomas Leman. His creations combine the functional needs of everyday use and uncanny, unusual and unique forms.


There is an element of the traditional and antique in his finished products, but deformed in the way our memories are skewed or our vision is distorted in dreams. Despite their twists and turns, each drawer can be pulled and each cabinet opened.


Through a sequence of formal-and-artistic operations, each furniture piece has clear origins in something conventional that is then stretched, curved, stacked and stepped through a controlled-but-creative iterative process with ever-changing results.


What began as a series of unique one-off custom furniture designs has become a successful line of products due, unsurprisingly, to ever-increasing demand.
