This year we will celebrate the Linteloo brand's 20th anniversary in Milan, so we decided to contribute a design for Jan's collection in quite a different material. The Pillow Cabinet is a modern version of a so-called pillow armoire and features puff-like front panels made from 2mm sheet metal. Making my pillow cabinet from this material was not an easy task. There are some ground rules for working with sheet metal: bend long parts and weld short. In my opinion sheet metal design is the most cost-effective way to manufacture a product, and for me this was a good reason to experiment with this material. But: 'what works on paper, doesn't always work in the physical world as planned, for a variety of reasons'. Bends have radius, sheet has thickness, and tools need space to access a bend. It sounds simple, but for me 'trial and error' at the factory was the only way to find the best aesthetic design solutions for this wonderful cabinet.
