The Shell, a specially commissioned cabinet by Maarten Baas, looks like something straight out of an Egyptian tomb. Somehow, it reminds me of those coffins out of which the mummies come popping out. Of course, the aesthetic element here is much more positive and sophisticated. This Shell cabinet has a faceted outer surface and wooden interior with two shelves. It is such a beautiful piece of furniture, having all the right ingredients that made its designer the designer of the year.
