Furniture Design: Boca do Lobo Pixel drinks cabinet

Love this beautiful furniture design from the company Boca do Lobo. They design beautiful and exclusive design pieces with elegance, refinement and sophisticated character, handcrafted in Portugal. Pixel is an effort to honor the union between design and craftsmanship. The 1,088 triangles that complete this piece carry the dedication and art of those who built it – with a diversity of finishes never seen before. The polished brass base gives Pixel a unique personality, a strong and at the same time sophisticated character.
