Klaas Kuiken has designed a cupboard and dresser in which he elevates the beauty of the material to the central theme. For Transitions II he reveals the hidden aesthetic qualities of the material Finsa Greenpanel. This is a material that is often applied anonymously but has a very specific, individual beauty on the inside. In Inside-Out it is given a place in the living room, in a series of cupboards and shelves. "Some materials first give you a surprise when you saw through them, or turn them around or rough them up. Finsa Greenpanel is a material that you literally have to cut through the middle of to discover its character."
