Hinged by Jelmer Wind


Jelmer Wind is fascinated by the little devices that allow doors to open or close. He has plunged into the working of hinges, which normally stay hidden: how do they move, what do they do and what can they add to a product? His research led to ‘Hinged’, a cabinet that is all about disclosure. The extremely enlarged hinges are the eye catchers of the design; the transparent bamboo structure that shows the beauty of the mechanics has been continued on all sides of the cabinet, revealing what is inside. Despite the see-through effect, curiosity about how it works still makes you want to open the doors.
