Crochet Chest by Boca Do Lobo

crochet chest boca do lobo

This chest designed by Lilliana Ferreira from the Portuguese design firm Boca Do Lobo is a real beauty.

Crafted to imitate traditional crochet work, this is actually metal. In the designer’s words,

The mood of the moment dictates fantasy and heritage. As its name denotes, this sensational piece was inspired by the traditional craft of crochet, a process of creating fabric that consists of pulling loops of yarn through other loops. The method of crocheting was reinterpreted in this piece through the forging of 60kg of classic brass pulls by a local jeweler resulting in a mesh which adorns the sinuous silhouette of the piece. The solid wood frame consists of seven drawers finished with a darkened gold leaf that ensures a mystery and an elegance which contrasts with the vibrant jewel toned purple of the handles.
