Hugh Miller Furniture were inspired by a trip to Japan and traditional Japanese furniture creating a unique drink cabinet that is sure to excite you.
The designers spent approximately 1000 hours hand-making the ‘In Shadows’ Drinks Cabinet. The labor-intensive piece combines Japanese bamboo, solid brass rods, and British elm wood that’s been stained with black Japanese calligraphy ink, resulting in cabinet that focuses on craftsmanship. The cabinet’s name comes from the Japanese essay ‘In Praise of Shadows’, a piece on Japanese aesthetics with a part about lacquerware and how it’s designed to be seen in dim light.
The diagonal bamboo pieces on the doors along with the diagonal brass rod screens cleverly disguise a Japanese coffee set, by Japanese ceramicist Saiko Fukuoka. The set can be seen within the shadows and light that filter through the gaps. This is a fresh take on traditional Japanese items made with new methods and techniques. Such a liquor cabinet is sure to make a bold statement in your space.
