Curtain Cabinet / curtain cabinet

Curtain Cabinet
Curtain Cabinet

Curtain up! a theater-like shelf. With reference to original cupboards this textile covered shelve uses draped fabric instead of traditional wooden doors. The curtain can be moved and opened all around the framework, depending on whether one wishes to hide or present the shelves content. A special seam helps to get a constant drapery. The edge of every shelf is surrounded by a 3mm thick beech veneer. This veneer-surrounding, works as a curtain rail at the upper shelf and reinforced the other shelves.
It's a new storage unit with traditional background. By using typology from architypical cupboards, it's familar and innovativ at the same time.
