The Piega (fold) console cabinet is made of solid walnut and finished with an ebonizing solution made of vinegar and steel wool used to darken the wood. The cabinet is designed to suggest a sense of folding, pleats, creases and overlaying forms within a simple rectangular object.
The balance between the complexity of the "folding" and the subtle details allows for the piece to be visually stimulating rather than confusing the nature of the object. Openings between the top drawer and the door fronts act as a pull. This opening adds a sense of mystery and creates an intriguing interaction with the form.
The facets have been created by hand machining. Although the piece is made of solid wood, the facets simulate characteristics of folded paper or of a box which has been crushed and remained in a tense form.
Solid wood drawer slides are used to lengthen the life of the piece rather than using mechanical drawer slides that may fail over time. Soft-close hinges are used to eliminate slamming of doors. Grain orientation has been carefully considered to prevent any cracking, warping and distortion over the life span of this piece.
