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 fabrics through and around the frame. By placing a weight at either end of the fabric, it comes under tension and this creates the final form 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 were designed by Puck Dieben as a graduation project at the Design Academy Eindhoven. The cabinet is inspired by a childhood memory. As a little girl, Puck built cabins by hanging bedding from her bunk bed. Towels became sliding doors and pillow covers served as storage compartments.

As a designer, Puck has revived the fun she had building cabins as a child. Her design shows what fabrics can do for a simple shelving unit.

Puck Dieben


The Dressed Cabinet has been part of the Vij5 collection since 2017. The flexibility offered by the cabinet and the endless variations that can be made with it make it a perfect Vij5 product.

When we contacted Puck, we also really liked her positive and cheerful attitude, so a collaboration was quickly established. Thanks to the high quality level of the prototype Puck made for her graduation, all we had to do was fine-tune a few (production) details and make a link to the right producer. A new Vij5 product was born!

"The flexibility the cabinet offers and the endless variations that can be made with it make it a perfect Vij5 product."

The metal frame of the Dressed Cabinet is made by our steel manufacturer in Bergeijk.

The frame consists of separate parts, so the cabinet can be executed in two different heights. Before we assemble the cabinet, the steel parts are powder coated in a color of your choice.

The fabric that can be woven through the cabinet is processed by our upholsterer in 's Hertogenbosch.

Added as weights are two stainless steel metal tubes with a wooden head, this is used 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 cabinet frame, we use the Kvadrat fabric "Canvas. The blended yarn used to make Canvas combines three colors, with six shades in each. As a result, the textile offers an exceptional richness of color. From a distance, it has the calm surface of a plain textile. But when you get closer, shimmering hues, delicate contrasts and an elegant texture emerge.

Other colors from the beautiful Kvadrat Canvas series are also available upon request, this can be 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 can be powder coated on order and can have an extra cost when ordered. Please contact us to create the perfect cabinet together!
