The Tube Cabinet is a design I created for an expo in Milan back in 2016. VIJ5 asked if they could add this modular cabinet system to their collection, and I’m thrilled that they want to include it alongside the popular Coatrack by the Meter and my glass candle holder. This modular cabinet system is crafted using the same production technique that I find so fascinating: a tube laser.

This modular cabinet employs the best characteristics of its materials and uses each in its purest form: wooden planks and aluminum tubes. The tubes 4x4cm are laser-cut to hold the shelves and function as side standards. Choosing tubes over solid materials is a well-known building trick to create light – but very strong – constructions. This simple structure is paired with wooden planks, which are used for their iconic thickness of 18mm. As such, the cabinet oozes ease and simple charm.

To give the structure strength, sheets of metal create a side- or backdrop and come with the flat pack.

But, do not mistake ease for simplicity: the cuts are finely shaped, lifting this household standard up to instant design classic!

VIJ5 is busy finalizing this modular product for production. If you have any questions, please contact VIJ5 to discuss which setup would be most fitting for you. We aim to make it a modular system that can be tailored to any home or office setting. The components will be available from stock. Please let us know what you are looking for, and we can generate a 3D model of your desired setup or assist with planning the exact layout. ( link  to VIJ5 )
