The Homage to Mondrian Cabinet was designed in 1975 by one of Japan's most famous designers Shiro Kuramata for the Italian furniture manufacturer Cappellini.
As the name suggests, the cabinet references Piet Mondrian, the celebrated Dutch painter whose abstract style of painting simplified compositions to vertical and horizontal lines, using just black, white and the primary colours. Shiro Kuramata reflects a bold geometric design reminiscent of Mondrian's most famous works on to the front panel of each version of the Homage to Mondrian Cabinet.
As well as furnishing a room with a visually striking piece of abstract art, the cabinet offers ample storage space, with drawers and shelves inside as well as plenty of area on top to display ornaments, plants or books. Made of matt lacquered HDF wood on a stainless steel frame, the sturdy cabinet features grey rubber castors to help move it around. At 116cm in height, 40cm deep and 99cm or 112cm wide depending on the version, the Homage to Mondrian Cabinet is a piece of furniture that makes an immediate impact and, like a piece of art, will no doubt be admired for years to come.
