The Shrine is a hub of drawers and doors accessible only with keys. Private items can safely be locked away in small spaces. For the very most personal items a secret room can be reached behind one of the drawers. The rooms have been scaled after typical accessories and gadgets. This way jewellery, makeup, records, headphones, an LP player, as well as private papers and your best whisky can inhabit the Shrine. It becomes your most private place in the house.
The Shrine is a product of the labyrinthine courtyards of Kreuzberg in Berlin. The architect lives and works in this culturally diverse neighbourhood, where his furniture is being produced and exhibited. Likewise the Shrine contains a complex internal infrastructure for cables, hidden rooms and spaces accessible with keys.
The materials are local oak wood and a traditional eastern German brass lock type and keys.
