Peter Marigold, working closely with Tadanori Tozawa of woodworking manufacturer Hinoki Kogei, has produced a series of cabinets made from different Japanese tree species. The wood chosen for each cabinet is selected carefully according to how it will split and work in relation to the overall cabinet dimensions. The pieces are inspired by the notion of splitting one thing into two and creating bi-symmetrical objects.
