RIDDLED CABINET by Steven Holl
2006-2006
 cabinet: lasercut Canaletto walnut and aluminum with vegetal oil finish

The ‘Riddled Cabinet’ is based on the installation ‘Experiments in Porosity’ consisting of five delicately faceted forms which exist not as independent objects, but rather as phenomenal experiences of spatial sequences within and around as parts of a whole. In the “Riddled Cabinet” the five porous boxes snap together influencing the geometries of each adjacent box. The cabinets are inscribed in an orthogonal frame defining the limits of the piece as furniture and densely perforated with five unique porous patterns. Each of these patterns reveals the contents of that specific box in a differentiation of light and shadow.
