Except for when one encounters the odd wonky table, he tends to take the sturdiness of his furniture for granted. This eccentric set called Sticks by Gerard de Hoop never lets the viewer forget the balancing act that each object performs.

There is a great deal to love about these peculiar pieces, which offer all of the benefits of a concealed storage system, cabinets that are elevated to a convenient access height and topped off with a delightful formal assembly that enhances a room's interior decoration. Three different modules make up the collection for Castelijn, varying by width and cubby height, but aligning along their upper ledges. Each of the Sticks by Gerard de Hoop stands on a single centered leg, giving the whimsical illusion of instability.
