The new cabinet series by Puck Dieben was inspired by the designer’s childhood memories, when she used to build huts by hanging linen and towels from the bed’s structure.
Dutch designer Puck Dieben designed the Dressed Cabinets collection for design brand Vij5. The cabinets are inspired by a childhood memory, when the designer used to build huts by hanging bed linen on the frame of her bunkbed, and towels became sliding doors and pillowcases served as hanging baskets.
Now as a designer she reconsidered the same concept and shows what textiles can do for a simple shelving unit. Owners can dress up their cabinet the way they like by weaving fabric through or around the metal frame. The tension in the fabric, created by the wooden parts, ensures the final form and functionality of the design: open or closed, formal or playful, static or dynamic. Dressed Cabinets invite adults to play with the appearance of their furniture once again.
