‘Cabinet of Love’
OEO Studio, Garde Hvalsøe, Bergmann Audio, Gato Audio and Dahlman 1807
This audio station – centered on a modular cabinet in smoked oak, with burnished brass, leather and pietra di Fossena – is ‘a tribute to premium cabinetmaking and music’, say the teams behind it, ‘a beautiful piece for modern times, celebrating the ritual of playing music the old-school way’. Designed by OEO Studio and made by Garde Hvalsøe, it comes with a custom-finish vinyl turntable and amplifier, respectively by Bergmann Audio and Gato Audio, and Dahlman 1807’s vinyl bag (adapted from an architect’s bag, designed by Erik Herløw in 1942) and vinyl brush.
Founded by Thomas Lykke and Anne-Marie Buemann, the Danish studio is best known for restaurant interiors (such as Copenhagen’s Kadeau), furniture and product design. oeo.dk
