Magistral Cabinet by Sebastian Errazuriz

The New York based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz has designed his latest cool project called Magistral Cabinet with 80,000 bamboo skewers, they act as a protective armor, safely holding one's personal belongings within. The doors and openings within the storage unit are concealed, and can be slid open to reveal its inner mechanisms.

Over the span of 6 weeks, 12 woodworkers engaged in an obsessive and labor intensive process to construct the furniture object. Each skewer was individually hammered into the previously carved wooden structure. See more;

Magistral Cabinet is currently on show as part of Errazuriz's solo exhibition 'Beautiful Premonitions' on show at Cristina Grajales Gallery.
