The Matera Collection (2007), focused on delivering ample storage, is the work of Sean Yoo, who at the time of its conception lived in Matera, Italy (thus its name). Born in Seoul, Yoo grew up in Los Angeles and was working as a city planner when a visit to the Noguchi Museum in New York inspired him to pursue design. “I was particularly attracted to the way Noguchi applied sculptural qualities to common household objects,” says Yoo. “It seemed to give meaning and purpose to otherwise meaningless objects.” The Matera Collection features clean lines nicely finished with beveled edges, running match wood grain and exposed-slot mortise-and-tenon corner joints. All pieces have slotted bases that lend an airy feel. The Matera Armoire has side panels that rest off the floor and three drawers, an interior mirror, a clothing rod and hooks for scarves and ties. Made in Malaysia.
Materials: Solid walnut or oak case frame and drawer fronts; walnut or oak veneer over MDF case panels with thick solid walnut or oak edging; vacuum-closing drawer glides; mirrored glass.
