The Dressed Cabinet is a product you immediately fall in love with as soon as you see it 'in action'. You can 'dress up' this cabinet by weaving fabric through and around the frame. By placing a weight at either end of the fabric, it will be put under tension and this will determine the final shape and function of the design; open or closed, formal or playful, static or dynamic.

Transparency of the production chain comes naturally to us.
For us, that doesn't just mean giving information about where something has been produced. Our chain starts much earlier: with the designer of the product!
We'll tell you the whole story. Click on the buttons to discover the different steps:
The Dressed Cabinets are designed by Puck Dieben as her graduation project at the Design Academy Eindhoven. The cabinet is inspired by a childhood memory. As a little girl, Puck used to build cabins by hanging bed linen from her bunk bed. Towels became sliding doors and cushion covers served as storage compartments.
As a designer, Puck has revived the fun she had building huts as a child. With her design she shows what fabrics can do for a simple shelving unit.

The Dressed Cabinet has been part of the Vij5 collection since 2017. The flexibility the cabinet offers and the endless variations that can be made with it make it a perfect Vij5 product.
When we contacted Puck, we also liked her positive and cheerful attitude, which made a collaboration happen very quickly. Thanks to the high quality of the prototype that Puck made for her graduation, we only had to finalise a few (production) details and make a link to the right producer. A new Vij5 product was born!

The metal frame of the Dressed Cabinet is made by our steel manufacturer in Bergeijk.
The frame consists of separate parts, so that the cabinet can be made in two different heights. Before we assemble the cabinet, the steel parts are powder coated in a colour of your choice.
The fabric that can be woven through the cabinet is processed by our upholsterer in 's Hertogenbosch.
As weights, two stainless steel metal tubes with a wooden head are added to tension the fabric.
In the material passport you can find where and by whom the different parts of this product are made.

For the fabric that can be woven through the frame of the cabinet, we use the Kvadrat fabric 'Canvas'. The blended yarn used to make Canvas combines three colours, with six shades in each. This gives the textile an exceptional richness of colour. From a distance it has the calm surface of a plain textile. But when you come closer, shimmering colour nuances, delicate contrasts and an elegant structure emerge.
Other colours from the beautiful Kvadrat Canvas series are also available on request, per cabinet!
The Dressed Cabinets are available in a number of standard colors, but can also be delivered in a custom color! The Kvadrat fabric is easy to choose per cabinet. The frame is powder coated to order and may have an additional cost. Please contact us to create the perfect cupboard together!
