Like architecture, Furniture design should always interact with Light.
Barcode cabinet was designed and built to read as a sculptural peice, interacting with light through the different densities of shade and spaces dedicated for keeping not only books but also other sculptural elements. Spaces for keeping sculptural items were backlit by lasercut, barcode-like, plywood (1/4″) backdrop.
Architecturally, the rectangle shaping this unit was perfectly based on the Golden Section, providing it profound geometrical aspect. Technically, the wood used for building this piece was Pine hardwood with carefull attention on NO glue or metal to use in this cabinet. This was made possible by means of wood-to-wood joints only, using Dovetail connections giving this unit sustainable credit, stronger Physics` aspect, tactility, and lightness, and modern look.
