Inspired by the Transformer’s Allspark, the Perceptor cabinet by Dutch interior designer Tieme Rietveld and image makers Codex Inferno combines modern art and interior furnishing into a one-off piece that will grab your attention and keep it.
It all started with the AllSpark, a piece I did a while back for a client. AllSpark was based on the AllSpark artefact from the Transformers series. I’m a big Transformers fan. The cabinet itself has only a few edges. The rest is the work of Codex Inferno. It kind of has an ‘impossible’ Escher feel to it. Or at least, that was our goal. We tried to blur the line between real and fake Tieme Rietveld
And in this sense, Rietveld has truly done the impossible: He’s created a cabinet as delightfully nonsensical as the average Michael Bay film.Codex Inferno’s sprayed image has elements of “cubism, futurism, and graffiti artists like Daim and Delta,” and combined with Rietveld’s already unconventional cabinet, the Percepter becomes the most delightfully mindbending way to store the dishes. Without looking extremely closely, it’s impossible to know where the angular image ends and the cabinet itself begins.
