Project Name: Meta Line Cabinet

Location: Istanbul, Turkey

Date Completed: 2016

Company Name: Deniz Tunc

Designer: Deniz Tunc

The Meta Line cabinet has been manufactured by Deniz Tunc and her craftsmen ateliers when designing and creating furniture, metal and polishing.

This bespoke wooden cabinet has been covered with brass metal ornate panels to create a swift motion effect by utilising different sizes of metals parallel to each other whilst still presented in a static, immobile way. The design brief was to concentrate on the use of brass metal and to select dark neutral colour finishes in order to achieve its design. The designers wanted to create a small sense of surprise by designing a reversed base, narrowing to the floor. Deniz Tunc wanted to make a diverse impact by using colour contrasts, different metal sizes and the bulkiness of the cabinet. The metal lines come forward from the sides to the front creating a conical impact whilst making them able to be used as handles.

The designer’s favourite aspect of the Meta Line cabinet is the masculine inviting charm of the hard lines. The design works well due to its proportions, the unconventional reversed bottom base and elegance of its stature. Special artisan skills were used in the fine tuning of metal surfaces with different transitions. The Meta Line cabinet was designed and manufactured in Istanbul where East meets West, Orient meets Okzident and North meets South to combine and melt in a unique pot.
