Hugh Miller Furniture draws inspiration from the East in the development of this handmade cabinet. Each component of the piece directly references Japanese culture — from the materials that were used to the name the piece was given.
The exquisite drinking cabinet debuted at the Design Festival in London and presents the culmination of 1,000 hours of hard work. The stylish piece features an elegant composition of Japanese bamboo, British elm wood, and brass rods. To amplify the unique aesthetic of the handmade cabinet, Hugh Miller Furniture stains the wood with Japanese calligraphy ink. The piece has been given the name 'In Shadows' which is derived from 'In Praise of Shadows' — an essay about Japanese aesthetics by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki.
