Symbiotically, the approximately 200-years old cabinet from Southern Germany and the shelf corpus merge into each other and form a finished object. The elaborate carvings in the doorstep are detailed and accurate witnesses of the time and make North-South to an unique piece. The gilded traces of use pay respect to the age of the cupboard and are a special detail of the entire design. The reduced design vocabulary of the shelf embodies the function and illustrates how the harmonious contrast can be formed from the old and the new.
