a filing system inspired by the Cabinet of Curiosities
A breathtaking picture at Salon Residence in Laren, last week. In one of the rooms of the historical Singer Museum, Edward van Vliet created an extrordinary office environment. With an extraordinary filing cabinet.
Like a 3D diary
Van Vliet got inspired by the glass Cabinets of Curiosities we know from musea or biology class at school. The ones with bizarre objects and glasses with body parts in it. “I wanted to make a filing cabinet full of beautiful, curious objects, that tell a special story. A cabinet like a 3D diary.” The rest of the room was furbished in the same style of Art, Science and Dutch Old Masters. The clouds on the ceiling looked like a Rembrandt painting. The portraits on the wall – pictures from Rademakers Gallery – were also in Old Masters style.
With his extraordinary filing cabinet, Edward Van Vliet wants to inspire the makers of office interiors. “Show the beautiful and curious objects that tell a story about you or your work in your office environment. Any professional can do this. With a filing cabinet made partly out of glass, all offices can have a Cabinet of Curiosities on their own. “
Album Armarium will soon be available with a “Cabinet of Curiosities” option – Lensvelt will keep you posted on this.
