Snickeriet, a new Swedish independent carpentry company whose name is Swedish for “the Carpentry”, recently launched its first collection of handmade furniture. I am really digging the Frank cabinet, a curio-like storage unit made of maple and plexiglass.
Designed by Karl-Johan Hjerling and Karin Wallenbeck, Frank was named because the way that piece was constructed is completely obvious — thus, the designers are being “frank” about how it’s made. I suppose, too, you could make a parallel here about the contents of the cabinet; the owner has to also be completely “frank” about what he or she stores inside. No secrets here!
