Honorable Mention - Furniture
Kevin Irvin / Irvin Studio
The goal of this project was to create a showpiece for a retreat home, a piece that could stand alone as art, and hide a television behind two middle synchronized vertical sliding doors. Keeping the lines minimal, we wanted the wood to star. The dimensions are 44" wide x 88" tall. Using royal ebony was the way to make this piece stand out, a wood so truly unique that I, a 15-year woodworker in high end shops, didn't even know it existed prior to this project.

Judges' comment
"'Ebony TV Cabinet' is a functional work of art, maximizing grain patterns that creates unique imagery using a rare white ebony veneer."
