The sleek and utilitarian Mashrabeya cabinet by Nina Mair is saved from boredom by the effect of its perforated doors which allow you to see its contents in shadowy form, and it is this mystery of half-hidden items makes the cabinet unique.  Somewhat contradictoraly inspired by decorative wooden frames that were used on windows and balcony enclosures in traditional Arabic architecture, the cabinet embodies only the functional principle of these elements as its delicate grid-like structure provides shading and ventilation.  The cabinet is available in four colour combinations: whitened beech or stained dark beech combined with coral or black.
