The irregular side cabinet was born from the contemplation of time. With philosophy of time and life hidden inside, the cabinet structure in an abstract expression refines its theme: People grow up as time goes by.

There is a natural transition between the solid wood and metal, allowing the cabinet to get on well with both classical and modern home styles. To be more specific, the solid wood and its sharp edge vividly portray the youth when people still retain a pure heart and expose their pride to the world without scruple. The natural transition is inspired by one of the Chinese classical philosophy, Tai Chi. The growth of people is exactly analogous to what Tai Chi implies that all beings evolve between nothingness and reality. Meanwhile, the rounded metal surface reveals the change of mindset that people are tempered to be worldly and strong-minded after they’ve tasted the sweets and bitters of life. To sum up the wisdom of growth in Chinese tradition, people start with being straightforward and end up in being unswerving.

Referring to the principle of space storage, its push&pull design saves more space than the open&close design. The inner space is devised with a dual structure where the upper board is narrower than the lower board in convenience of picking&placing goods in the lower space. Moreover, the upper board can be pushed and pulled in convenience of picking&placing goods in the upper space.
