Glitch cabinet draws inspiration from image errors

New, 26 comments

Ferrucio Laviani's Good Vibrations cabinet blends traditional furniture design with a thoroughly modern "glitch" aesthetic to stunning effect. Lavini's piece looks, for the most part, like any meticulously-crafted cabinet, complete with ornate carvings that wouldn't look out of place at in a 16th-century home. What makes it special, however, is a trio of "glitches" inspired by the errors that occur when a digital image doesn't render correctly. To achieve the glitches, Laviani carved the cabinet from oak using a CNC machine.

Unfortunately, as stunning as it appears, it's not an actual product. The image below is only a render. Good Vibrations will be on display next month at a furniture show in Milan; hopefully the real-life cabinet is just as impressive as its promotional render.
