DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Corona

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Cabinet

INSPIRATION:
The designer was inspired by the steel sheets walling a construction site when he was waiting for green traffic signal. The corrugation of the sheets aroused him with a new idea of using non straight lines on the metal component of a furniture. Lately he found out a cabinet could provide sufficient size to express the beauty of wrinkled metal and granite's irregular texture provided a good direction for creation as such texture conveys a strong visual sense of nature.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design is a combination of the nature and artifact. The doors of the cabinet on the body part using abounding wrinkled line imitate the texture of nature granite.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The design is unable to be disassembled. It ought to be transported as a whole and with careful protection. The doors can be opened wide at its both flanks and when they are opened, the users range of action with its storage space is actually enlarged. The user could put wine bottle, china, metal ware into the cabinet storage according to their need.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The whole project including the design process and the production process lasted two months. The legs and the wooden frame were finished in our own factory. The doors were hammered and polished by an outsource manufacturer in Beijing. The leather parts inside the storage were outsourced to a local leather ware manufacturer.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The production technologies include using mortise-tenon joints for the wooden frame and legs, hammering stainless steel on the outer surface of the doors, using pivot hinges to attach the doors to the wooden frame, and using the needle method for making small leather wares to attach the leather pieces to the backboard in the inside of the cabinet.

Crossover, Art Installation, Cabinet, Homeware

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This item was not a research orientated design but just merely an artistic pursue at the beginning. After observing the existing furniture products in the market of China, he decided to make a breakthrough. A lot of the existing furniture repeatedly focus on functionality, but the designer wanted to make an actionable installation without detaching real life function. Finally he came to unifying an installation and a cabinet furniture as one, which is the item presented here rightnow.

CHALLENGE:
Because stainless steel is the raw material of the doors, the wooden frame must be able to sustain very strong weights. To ensure that the doors are well sustained, and could open and close normally, the designer decided to use pivot hinge at the roof and at the legs to attach the doors.
