Hand made of simple materials, wood painted black, but with an intriguing design, says designer Sebastian Errazuriz, "You instantly want to play with the piece and its multiple configurations." The independently controlled slats resemble animal quills and, just like real quills, can be positioned up or down.
"The idea is that you can open and close the various components and configure it in different ways. Like quills on porcupine, the work is about flexibility with all the pieces opening up," explains gallery owner Cristina Grajales.
Porcupine Cabinet is the first of an edition of 12 that Errazuriz will make.
