Snowstorm Media Cabinet
“Even a thin TV isn’t anything special to look at, not when it’s turned off. I wanted to make it disappear,” Kay said. That desire inspired this media cabinet. When you slide the doors closed, as shown, you see the image of woods in a gentle snowstorm. That image is a high-resolution decal, sliced down the middle, and adhered to the plywood panels. Surrounding the snow scene are dovetailed boxes of sapele, which support the structure and function as shelves to show off art works and heirlooms. “The best surprise about the piece? Everyone watches a lot less TV,” Kay said.
