Rare limited production cabinet designed by Aldo van den Nieuwelaar for Nila Lights Tilburg, Holland 1992. Aldo worked on this angled cabinet for more than 2 years. The idea for this design was the result of a chance meeting, when his friend saw the prototype of a V-shaped cupboard in the room he said; ‘Why don’t you saw it in 2?’. Which he did and as a result of that he had the global shape of this AKS cabinet. The various wooden panels and shelves are mitered in 14 different ways. The cabinet was completely hand made. This cabinet is nr 6 of the 12 cabinets that were made including the prototypes. This particular cabinet was made of cherry wooden veneer and the edges are black painted. The doors close with magnet locks and its in completely original, very good condition. Signed with Nila Lights sticker on the bottom, and numbered/dated accordingly.
