At first glance, there appears to be nothing unusual. And then when we notice a drawer in each box pulls out from a different direction, we are like “what the f%!# is this?”
I LOVE IT.

This work is designed for an exhibition, ‘DEROLL Commissions Series 1: box’ in Tokyo, 2007; which was held in the theme of ‘box’, and participated by 5 famous Japanese architects. This is a cabinet which looks just like 5 simple stacked boxes. You can not find which drawer is able to be drawn, so you will feel surprised that the function of the box suddenly appears when a drawer is opened. You can utilize the remaining space around each box to put some objects as you like.Makoto Yamaguchi / Makoto Yamaguchi Design
