Puck Dieben together with Vij5
“ Puck Dieben recently graduated from the Design Academy in Eindhoven. As a pragmatic poet; she likes to search for simple solutions within limitations and loves to give shape to imaginative ideas. In her work she combines looks and function in simple, yet playful forms. By doing this, she aims to create products that are basic but new in aesthetics, while keeping their function alive and interesting.”

These ‘Dressed Cabinets’ are inspired by a childhood memory. As a little girl, Puck used to build huts by hanging bed linen on the frame of her bunkbed. Towels became sliding doors and pillowcases served as hanging baskets.
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.
