A model for a cabinet inspired by Magical Realism and repoussior in paintings. Repoussoir is an object along the right or left foreground in a painting that directs the viewer's eye into the composition. This technique is found frequently in Dutch seventeenth-century landscape paintings. This cabinet has 2 sides / 2 realities. From one side it’s a drawer-cabinet, but from the other side it’s a regular cabinet. This reflects the ‘illogical scenario’ although it seem ‘normal’. When you open the cabinet doors, you will always see the drawer. This creates awareness of the big space the cabinet contains. But by the use of only the drawer the object has a much smaller usage-space. Read Less

A model for a cabinet inspired by Magical Realism and repoussior in paintings.

Repoussoir is an object along the right or left foreground in a painting that directs the viewer's eye into the composition. This technique is found frequently in Dutch seventeenth-century landscape paintings.

This cabinet has 2 sides / 2 realities. From one side it’s a drawer-cabinet, but from the other side it’s a regular cabinet. This reflects the ‘illogical scenario’ although it seem ‘normal’. When you open the cabinet doors, you will always see the drawer. This creates awareness of the big space the cabinet contains.
