Leah K. S. Amick Illustrates The Peel Cabinet

Leah K. S. Amick, the architect of the awarded design Cabinet by Leah K. S. Amick illustrates, Peel is a freestanding cabinet featuring an unusual door that, rather than swinging on a hinge, peels open. A satisfying, tactile experience is created first as the plane of the door breaks away, folding back in segments, and then once again as the cover is gently pulled back into place. The body, constructed from white oak, sits on a lightly brushed, stainless steel base. Seven angular panels are laminated onto a heavy canvas to create the reverse effect of a tambour door, which is held in place by a series of magnets embedded into the wood..
