Good Vibrations: An Intricately Carved Cabinet Looks Like a Digital Glitch | Archivance - Miscellanées | Scoop.it

Titled the Good Vibrations Storage Unit the piece will first appear at Italy’s annual interior show Fratelli Boffi. I’d love to see it from a few different angles, but incredible nonetheless.
