W276- Geometric Wall Cabinet
Murphy made this wall cabinet for a client who wanted something playful and original to house a collection of crystal figurines. While working on the design, he found a photo he’d taken of ice crystals on a windowpane. The geometric shapes of the crystals sparked the arrangement of boxes in the cabinet. “I’m happy that I took something I saw in nature and transformed it into a workable design for a cabinet,” Murphy said. As to the little “staircase” he made for the upper cabinet, he said, “I didn’t stew over that part … I designed and made it on the fly, and sometimes that’s the best way to go.”
