With its clever combination of drawers and compartments, Mingkasa is ideal for housing private treasures. The tiny drawers are irresistible and even with the doors closed this cabinet is itself a treasure of craftsmanship. Eggshell and natural lacquer are traditional decorative materials in East Asia. We preserve the original technique of hand-applied and hand-polished eggshell and lacquer. 8 layers of natural lacquer are applied to the substrate, each layer dried and polished. Then the eggshell is inlaid in a layer of wet lacquer. Another 10 layers of lacquer are applied, dried and polished. The striking finish in Makassar optics makes this cupboard a unique sculpture for living spaces.
