Enigma: A Foam Cabinet That Does Away with Drawers and Doors

When you think of console cabinets, your first thought is probably storage hidden behind a series of drawers and doors. But, Santiago-based industrial designer Alessandro Criscito has changed all that with a cabinet called Enigma. While its shape references a traditional cabinet, Enigma hides your things between layers of low density pink foam.

Technically, the cabinet is “open” as there are no doors, but the design allows your books and other flat objects to remain “hidden” as they would in a storage unit. You also have the option to leave them partially sticking out if you prefer. It seems like the design could also work as a buffet to store china in a dining room, doesn’t it?
