When Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his Canon Inversus for two violins, he wrote the notes on just one sheet instead of the two parts on seperate sheets: one musician plays from top to bottom, the other plays from bottom to top, facing each other with the music paper in the middle.
The long and slender Kabinet Inverso is inspired on this mirrored canon. By just using the two legs on the front side, the cabinet leans to the wall. The curved rail of the sides extend into a curved rail between these legs, giving it a twirly elegance.
Because of the palindromic design, the bottom “skirting” is mirrored in the “crown molding” on top. As a consequence the whole cabinet can be turned upside down, the only difference being the hingeside of the door; you can choose to open the door either left or right. Don´t forget to put the drawer in the upright position.
The door closes with a vault-like sound by means of a brass pin which can be triggered by sliding the wooden handle in the middle of the door. The gap in the door around this slide is closed off by the front of the small drawer inside.
The cabinet is made of solid Oak, Bubinga and Wenge wood with an oil and wax finish.
All joints are dovetails, mortise and tenon, tongue and groove.
Dimensions are 210 x 35 x 27 cm (height x width x depth).
