London 2012: Terranos Cabinet by Jack Frost
Australian designer Jack Frost has presented his latest creation the Terranos Cabinet at the Common Wealth exhibition during the London Design Festival 2012. The name of the furniture unit is an amalgamation of the Latin terms Terra and Novus which means Modern Land. Following is a description from the designer, “Inspiration for this design came about by studying the rural Australian landscape and aerial photography. The undulating exterior of the cabinet represents the beautiful natural contours of Australian topography, which was then manipulated into a geometric form. The front drawer cut-outs are overlayed aerial photographs taken from satellite imagery.
The cabinet’s design prevents objects from being placed on top which would detract from its aesthetic landscape form. Despite this, it is a functional cabinet with over 160 litres of storage. This comprises of five touch to open drawers using Blum Tip-On for Tandem running gear.”
