From New York-based Sebastian Errazuriz Studio, this functional sculpture is called Wave, a baltic birch cabinet that opens in a variety of beautifully fluid ways thanks to its 100 connected slices. Errazuriz explains:

“I am inviting people to look at one of the simplest forms of furniture design and to forget that we’re talking about furniture, instead to see it as a way of breaking a box. I love the idea of creating beautiful furniture; nevertheless I am much more interested in using the medium as an excuse to trigger people’s curiosity and create a connection with them.”
