You're going to wish you owned a wave cabinet

Prepare yourself for some serious furniture envy.

Sebastian Errazuriz is the sort of maddeningly talented individual one usually only finds in works of fiction; a creative with just a little too much skill to be plausible. A New York-based artist, you might well have seen his collection of shoes for shoe lovers. He's also pretty handy at product design, as his latest furniture concept proves.

The Wave cabinet manages to be a functional "box for putting stuff in", and a nifty piece of interior design: made from a series of wooden slats, as one is pulled along a hinged edge it brings the adjacent slats with it - opening much like a paper fan. In a language preserved only for describing artistic projects, Errarzuriz's studio states "The Wave cabinet reinvents the paradigm of cabinet as a re-visualization of the domestic, quotidian objects that surround us."

And no, don't expect it to appear in Ikea any time soon. It's currently an artistic concept with no plans for mass production.
