The Normann Copenhagen Jalousi Cabinet’s louvred door takes inspiration from the segmented design of watch straps, conveyor belts, and iconic pieces of 1950s furniture design. The door appears to disappear into the cabinet’s frame with a pulley system that ensures smooth, even motion.
Sleek in design, the ABS plastic is available in a variety of colourways, allowing you to customise it to best suit your space. Suitable for both work and living spaces, the Jalousi cabinet features moveable interior shelves that can be easily reconfigured to easily store ring binders and books, or glass, porcelain, and other decorative objects.
Simon Legald studies design at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and will graduate in the Summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological- and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects, and makes them trustworthy. In my designs I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
