A storage unit whose doors are disc-shaped glass sheets.
Our design derives from the historical practice of cutting sheet glass from glass discs.
We thought that the faint swells and depressions that result from the artisanal handmade practice would gently warp the things placed on the shelves, behind the glass.
The holes in the center become finger-sized handles to roll the discs left and right.
