MIDST, a cabinet for our ever changing precious things.

Midst highlights our relationship with the objects we hold dear through the simple act of storage. This experience is enhanced by materiality, subtly engaging us with the ambient qualities of our indoor environment.

Material:  translucent acrylic, powder coated steel

Midst’s box within the box represents consciousness within our perception. These are elements taken from the main inspiration behind Midst, the philosophy of Phenomenology. As Phenomenology is about experiencing the experience for the experience itself, I wanted to physically represent the preciousness of our relationship with the objects we revere. 


After investigating the elements of our indoor environments, I was drawn to the natural light we receive from our windows. The materials and color were chosen so the contents within Midst change throughout the day, reflecting and reacting to the changes of natural light.
