Dinah Cabinet

****USUALLY SHIPS IN 12-16 WEEKS****

Design Shiro Kuramata, 1970 / 2013
Metal plate, MDF, melamin plating
Made in Italy by Cappellini

A re-edition of the Progetti Compiuti collection, also part of the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York, the Dinah cabinet is a chest of drawers envisioned by designer Shiro Kuramata. Faithful to the original design from 1970, Dinah is a column unit composed of 18 drawers (in matte finish white lacquered wood) that open in both directions; the frame is made of laser-cut metal painted with black epoxy powder.

A design icon, Shiro Kuramata was the Japanese designer who best epitomized the spirit of the era in which he lived, through his highly significant products and creations. In 1965, he founded the Kuramata Design Office in Tokyo, where he remained until the year of his death, in 1991, working on numerous projects that entered the product and Design hall of fame. Kuramata first encountered Italian design through Memphis, then in 1987, with Cappellini, for whom he created the Progetti Compiuti chest of drawers series. All of the pieces Kuramata made for the company were incredibly well-received, such as the Steel Pipe Drink Trolly, the Sofa With Arms, the Ko-Ko table, the Bookshelf and the Revolving Cabinet chest of drawers. Kuramata's designs are still remarkably modern, and many can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, the MoMA in New York, the Metropolitan Museum, the Vitra Design Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art of Toyama.

The Dinah chest of drawers is produced in a numbered, but not limited, series.
