Dutch designer Dik Scheepers has created a cabinet made of oak and translucent corrugated PVC.

The use of corrugated PVC for the Sine Cabinet was inspired by flower-selling booths in the area near Amsterdam where Dik Scheepers grew up.

"People associate corrugated PVC with cheapness and poverty - a shame because it's such a nice material if you see the light fall trough it," Scheepers told Dezeen. "By combining it with a material such as oak, an traditional material for quality furniture, that feeling changes."

The frame extends behind the enclosed space of the cupboard because he wanted the piece not to be forgotten as its owner becomes used to its presence. "I wanted to make a cabinet that you can't just put against a wall, but it jumps off it," he explains.

"The cabinet will change over time," he adds. "The longer it stands, the fuller it gets, the less it will reveal because the corrugated PVC will loose its transparency."

He's now looking for a manufacturer and making the pieces in his own workshop in the meantime.
