An Antique Cabinet with a Modern Twist

Balance and contrast are two vital concepts in design. Too much contrast and a design can seem disjointed and messy. When a design is well balanced, ideas can be challenged and boundaries pushed, but the end result is satisfying and harmonious. In Chinese philosophy, yin yang is used to describe how polar or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn. The saying that opposites attract is a reduced version of this concept, which proves itself in many walks of life.

Duo is a cabinet which plays off the idea of yin yang by bringing together designs from both ultra modern and antique. Consisting of an old cabinet and a minimalist cabinet, Duo interlocks the two designs to create a harmonious piece.
