Young Norwegian designer Bjørn van den Berg has created the Sheet Cabinet; a simple and sculptural design that hides and exposes the objects by changing the angles of the two front sheets. Bjørn explains:
The positioning of the hinges allows the doors to revolve in a 90 degree rotation from front edges to side edges, always remaining open from one or two sides. With a subtle hand movement the cabinet changes its sculptural expression, raising the question of whether it’s a shelf or a cabinet.
Sheet Cabinet is comprised of aluminium profile and 3mm untreated aluminium sheets; a material that also adopts its surrounding depending on the time of day and positioning of the doors.
Bjørn van den Berg graduated from the Master programme in Product Design at Oslo and Akershus University College in 2014. He designs everyday objects with a drive to extend each object’s lifespan by appealing to user’s feelings, making people aware of the object’s presence, value, sensibility and tactility.
