Hang Tight Who says a chest of drawers has to be stationary? Ditte Hammerstrøm presents a balancing act of keepsakes with her Bunch of Boxes. "Ditte Hammerstrøm belongs to a new generation of Danish designers taking a conceptual approach to traditional cabinet making. Her deconstructed chest of draw- ers swings, holding a chosen number of boxes inspired by the owner's keepsakes. The work creates movement and levity out of a conventionally solid and sedentary piece of furniture. It reminds me of netted abalone, fresh from the sea." —Alexandra Cunningham This limited edition hanging cabinet, Bunch of Boxes, by Ditte Hammerstrøm, is presented by Galerie Maria Wettergren at Design Miami/. 112 CULTURED COURTESY GALERIE MARIA WETTERGREN
