Dezeen noted: Design duo Adam and Arthur decorated Mother and Child with straw marquetry, a craft technique that uses flattened ribbons of straw to embellish furniture. The undulating monochromatic cabinet references the silhouette of a mother and child, a recurring motif in art history. “Contemporary design is required to maintain craftmanship and this incredible piece of work demonstrates a fantastic use of ancient technique in a modern and sustainable way,” said the design master jury. “The cabinet is also beautiful and extremely elaborate.”
