THE VINNY MEDIA UNIT
After being asked by several customers if we could design a media cabinet, we decided to give it a shot! We began the design phase over a year ago as it took several iterations to get right.
The Vinny is a modern interpretation of the traditional Danish media unit. We opted for angular details instead of rounded, and added an industrial edge with the use of perforated metal doors. The end result is a beautiful hand-crafted piece that maintains an elegant and retro aesthetic. Traditional wood-working techniques such as dovetail joins and soft close door and drawer mechanism are incorporated to ensure the highest quality.
100% PLANTATION TEAK
With each piece we carefully select the best pieces of legally harvested plantation teak wood (one of the most durable and premium woods). We make sure we choose the pieces with the most interesting grains.
We collaborated closely with our factory manager Pak Catur to develop all of the intricate details. For example we were stuck on what material to use for the doors, as we thought wood would be too heavy.
We spotted a piece of perforated metal in the back of the metal studio and made some doors on the spot. We were sold, as even in their raw state they were beautiful. They also conveniently allow you to change the channel when closed, and allow for ventilation!
Getting the proportions right is always difficult. We needed to make sure it looks balanced physically, but also it has to be practical and fit all equipment sizes. It took several mock ups to get right. Also integrating metal doors with the wood, proved to be tricky.
After much work we are proud to have the product now available on our site. Each unit is customisable online, and available in our 4 signature styles, VINNY, BOB, SUZY and WILLY. Available in white-wash teak, natural teak, and 5 metal colours.
We can also customise size by request.
