Secret compartments

Work by Sergej Kirilov

Sergej Kirilov Detail
Why is the secret compartment in the cupboard or desk so intriguing? If you discover it, it is always empty. How do you know you have found the real secret compartment? Is there another one you still have to find? What’s in the box? A mystery? Can you resist opening the nest of dolls? Even though you know what’s inside, what were you expecting to find? Just checking? Too many temptations to resist.


Cabinets of Curiosity

We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

Work in progress
