Many people want to show off their art possessions in the home, but often the storage plays second fiddle to the collection itself. This certainly is not the case with Ka-Lai Chan’s incredible work the gradient cabinet.
A mesmerizing piece, the design is based around polyester- latex winding its way around the metal frame, becoming ever closer as they climb higher. Objects on display are partially concealed by the material, requiring the viewer to move their line of sight up and down the piece to get a clear view.
The designer explains this process by describing it as a means to “opening yourself to the outer world”.
