The Alter Cabinet with Sculpture
The Alter Cabinet with Sculpture by London based furniture makers Sasa Works is a functional piece inspired by a large ancient cabinet in a rock cut church in Lallibela, Ethiopia. The cabinet is crafted from European Oak, with sliding dovetail joints and a hand-carved removable sculpture made from English Yew and a single pebble. If preferred, this piece can be made to order without the sculptural detail.
The Alter Cabinet was originally inspired by a large ancient cabinet housed in a rock cut church in Lallibela, Ethiopia. The studio drew inspiration from the raw, robust form of the piece with a-symmetrical doors and large hand-crafted surface mounted hinges. The cabinet name 'Alter' comes from the sacred context of its origin, but also in the idea of how it could potentially be used to hold sacred objects.
