It is far more common to come across rigid and rectangular furnishings these days but pieces like the Terranos Cabinet are slowly emerging. They appear to revolt against the strictly simple and minimal geometry that consumes contemporary taste, in favor of a style that imposes on the space around it.

A buffet cupboard is rarely a light-footed piece of furniture, often occupying a substantial area to offer plenty of storage and a surface for serving. Jack Frost's design is characterized by an undoubted bulkiness, however its upper edge makes it tricky to set any items down.

The whimsicality of this commanding interior object is communicated through its apparently crumpled and multifaceted sides. The unpredictable asymmetry of the Terranos Cabinet is carried through to the shaping and the tectonic arrangement of the five distinctive wooden drawers as a compelling interpretation of the Australian landscape.
