Curi: a contemporary cabinet of curiosity.

Curi is inspired by Wunderkammer of mid-sixteenth century Europe, which were collections of unusual and exotic objects. With its folding doors and sliding hinges, Curi allows you to display or hide away your personal belongings and sentimental treasures. A combination of ash, glass and steel, the display cabinet is suitable for any modern home. The colour pop interior can be personalised for the user, to make each cabinet unique and representative of the user’s character. Curi is a form of self-expression through furniture, presenting and concealing possessions when desired, and with ease.

The vision for Curi is to build each cabinet as ordered by the customer. This would include a consultation with the designer, to make sure colour and material choices are suitably matched. Guiding them and involving the customer in the design process makes the whole experience of obtaining the display cabinet more personal but also ensures every cabinet is of the same high quality.
