Technically, the cabinet is “open” as there are no doors, but the design allows your books and other flat objects to remain “hidden” as they would in a storage unit. You also have the option to leave them partially sticking out if you prefer. It seems like the design could also work as a buffet to store china in a dining room, doesn’t it?

But, Santiago-based industrial designer <a href="https://www.tevasq.com/" rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Alessandro Criscito</a> has changed all that with a cabinet called <a href="https://www.tevasq.com/enigma" rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Enigma</a>. While its shape references a traditional cabinet, Enigma hides your things between layers of low density pink foam.
