The free-form shape of the Andiroba design resembles a sculptural hybrid between human and tree-like forms. The split shell exterior is finished on all sides, and pivots open to reveal the interior.
Originally conceived of as an awareness raising piece for the use of FSC certified sustainably harvested woods, the Andiroba derives its name from the wood that was used to make the original prototype.
Custom interior configurations are available, including modified drawer storage for use as either a credenza or humidor. The cabinet as shown was fitted as a wine cabinet, with halogen lights, mirror back, glass shelves and granite serving surface. There are 10 cubbies for horizontal storage of wine bottles plus a small drawer for accessories such as corkscrews.
The Andiroba Wine Cabinet was designed by John Wiggers.
