Nina Mair Architecture + Design crafted a cabinet that adds an air of mystery to your belongings with its patterned sliding doors. The Mashrabeya cabinet features perforated doors that result in a moiré effect that changes as the doors slide open and closed.
Its Mashrabeya name was derived from the Arabic term Maschrabiyya, which refers to decorative wooden frames in traditional Arabic architecture seen in windows frames or balcony enclosures of residences. The same idea applies to the cabinet with its punctured panels that help keep things partially hidden with the added bonus of ventilation.
The Mashrabeya cabinet is available in different color combinations: whitened beech or stained dark beech, combined with coral or nubia door panels.
