Yesterday I attended an exhibition at Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh of this year's graduates from Chippendales International Furniture School. This is Robert Vowels drinks cabinet which has a complex puzzle mechanism to locate the key and keyhole. Robert has worked as a tree surgeon across the world and uses mainly recycled exotic timbers in his designs.
"Inspiration for this drinks cabinet came from the Japanese puzzle boxes that have been baffling the world for many years. I decided to make the door a series of moves one must complete before revealing the key. When the user finally gains access they are rewarded with a psychedelic geometric marquetry pattern that is enhanced by a rear mirror and mirrored shelf." Robert Vowels
