Exquisite Details Covering the Magistral Cabinet by Sebastian Errazuriz


Displaying an exceptional design with exquisite details, the Magistral Cabinet offers a glamorous feeling to any interior. Created by New York based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz, the majestic cabinet design is covered in over 80,000 bamboo skewers. The patterned design creates a fantastic dynamic effect. Featuring many drawers and openings hidden at first sight, the Magistral Cabinet protects your belongings with style. The drawers slide open to reveal the functioning mechanism of this amazing piece of furniture. When closed, the cabinet looks like it was taken out of a modern fantasy. In 6 weeks, 12 skilled woodworkers created what the designer dreamed: a perfectly balanced, glamorous cabinet. Each bamboo skewer was individually hammered into the previously carved wooden structure, creating an extremely elaborate design. Currently on display at the Cristina Grajales Gallery, the Magistral Cabinet can be admired by anyone interested in the design and  the artist’s work.

    Sebastian Errazuriz has a real knack for whimsical and clever designs that make you giggle and covet at the same moment. Did anyone see his coat made of teddy bears? Errazuriz is eminently capable of mixing fashion and function, although with 6 workers taking 12 weeks to hammer in the skewers i can’t imagine this is the sort of piece to go on sale to the public, more likely the domain of the uber-rich
