Elevating the way that we display precious items in our homes, giving the user permission to curate their own scene with their objects.
This project was initially exploring the grey area between display and storage and what set them apart. My conclusion is that display is often a series of ever evolving personal and valuable items that represent the curator’s experiences and personality.
The way someone displays something in their home can tell you a multitude about them such as their creativity, what holds value to them, places they’ve been and so on.
Initially, when I decided to apply my research and experiments to a drinks cabinet, my idea was to hide the valuable drinks at the back of the cabinet from overindulgent guests and place the cheaper drinks towards the front. However, as the project evolved I discovered that I had created a whole stage on which the user can orchestrate the arrangement of their spirits and have pride in the way that they display them.
‘Ghost’ cabinet celebrates the theatre that the user can have whilst displaying objects, in this case spirit bottles, allowing them to curate their own display and change the focus of the objects in an analogue nature by moving the frosted screens and layering opacity up in the backlit cabinet. These screens provide the ‘ghost’ like effect that the bottles are given within the cabinet.
