Industrial designer Alessandro Criscito changes the way people will think of storage with his introduction of the Enigma cabinet. The traditional storage space that a cabinet offers in the form of drawers and other compartments is completely reimagined. The Enigma cabinet stores items between layers of a pink colored low-density foam. Eliminating the use of doors, this cabinet is technically opened. Users will use its function by sliding items such as books between the layers for storage. Users can completely hide the items between the foam layers or leave it slightly in sight.

The Enigma cabinet brings forth a new archetype to storage furniture and explores new materials in this territory. The usage of foam materials plays with the irony between empty and full, visible or out of sight. The cabinet also uses materials such as MDF Laminate and metal to craft the strong foundation and structure of the piece.
