henningmade is a dutch design studio led by sven hulsbergen henning. the practice focuses heavily on the interactions between master craft and modern technology, using the dynamic as a means to rethink craftsmanship in a contemporary sense. the ‘regina’ cabinet is the studio’s latest objet d’art, and is made of multiple layers of mahogany and acrylic panels with stainless steel fittings. henningmade used a laser cutter to form each piece of the complex structure which is composed of distinctly geometrical shapes.

the cabinet’s interior reveals a grid pattern 




the form’s interior reveals the grid that underlies the exterior design. a ribbed construction pierces the polished mahogany skin repeatedly, providing a sense of order to the overall work. both matte and gloss acrylics are used in ‘regina’ and together continuously change reflection and contrast patterns.
