The colours became the starting point for the shape of the Kvintett (Quintet) sideboard by Eva Schildt, a display cabinet transformed into a multifaceted side cabinet.
The cabinet is handmade with a mahogany frame, mirrored base and glass sides. The bold colours of the short sides are combined with light tones in the front to avoid obscuring the objects being displayed. The colour combinations change as you move along the furniture.
The slim dimensions of the cabinet, with the legs higher than the storage section, are influenced by Josef Frank’s idea that a piece of furniture should stand on legs that are high enough to discern the line between the floor and wall beneath it. To further create lightness of form, the frame is slightly recessed at the front.
