The Best Bet


It was a simple piece of pink foam that caught 24-year-old Dutch designer Dewi van de Klomp’s eye and ultimately inspired his series of surprisingly sturdy machine-cut foam-rubber Soft Cabinets. (For more wares by up-and-coming young designers from around the globe, see “Twenty-one Under Thirty-five.”) The model shown here—whose spidery legs are part Queen Anne, part Pee-wee’s Playhouse—can be secured to the wall with steel pins and stacked with everything from teacups to books to small plants. “The objects placed in the cabinets will leave a mark,” says Van de Klomp, who graduated from University of the Arts Utrecht last year, “and turn each cabinet into a printed story about its owner.” (Available in December; from €1,500 at dewivandeklomp.nl.)
