Let the Light In

In a place where the industry long since closed down and the smoke from the factories chimneys have dried up and become dust in the atmosphere, this building still remains. The production stopped many years ago, and the weather has given the building a patina that is worth remembering. In the cabinet Let the light in, I have used the building as an inspiration and interpreted it in a contemporary way to show that nothing remains the same. The proportions are inspired by the building's beautiful aesthetics and the pattern relates to the facade panels, which I used as the cabinet's sides and doors. I have worked with transparency and light to catch the feeling of the chimney smoke long time gone.
