Booleanos Cabinet Gives the Illusion of Overlapping Slanted Squares

This example of abstract cabinetry demonstrates that irregular geometric forms can be arranged to look completely regular. Called Booleanos, this cupboard comprises some strangely shaped four-sided cubbies that come together to look like overlapping squares.

The apparent points of overlap create separations for six different panels, fronting five distinctive storage spaces. It isn't immediately obvious how any of these open, but you'll discover that there are four cabinet doors in the rectilinear jumble, and one single deep drawer at the bottom.

Designed by Joel Escalona with Roche Bobois, this abstract cabinetry makes a bold and engaging statement on its own. The piece of furniture is probably best featured amidst an otherwise minimalist room, where its unusual composition and its muted colors can be put on display.
