Inside Out Cabinets
The first prototype of the Inside Out Cabinet was developed for the Transitions II project of Baars&Bloemhoff. Inside Out Cabinets is now part of the collection of Linteloo.
With Inside Out Cabinets, Klaas Kuiken set out to reveal the beauty of the Medite Greenpanel material, often hidden within pieces and not shown outwardly. This inside-out take on the series of cabinets and wall shelves elevates the materials used to a central focus.
Klaas Kuiken’s products and designs arise from a fascination with the creative process and its influence on the final result. Even though Klaas is clearly a product designer, when busy in his workshop he is more like a skilled craftsman and curious inventor. The Discovery Channel TV show ‘How it’s made’ is one of Klaas’ biggest sources of inspiration. This program sparked a fascination for mass production and the question ‘what is the influence of mass production in relation to the identity of products?’ became a central theme in his work.
