This is the second version of the cabinet D&A Lab realized with Freek Wambacq. The cold stainless steel
surface has been replaced by brass.
Although it kept the exact same shine, the warm colour of brass adds another layer of perception.
Where in the first cabinet the hard, cold surface was counterweighted by a velvet olive-green paint, this time the
warm surface was combined with a harder anthracite finish on the inside.

The main quality of Wambacq’s work lies essentially in his sculptural method. He thinks, sees and acts in a sculptural manner.
There is certainly no lack of choice when it comes to materials. His choice is sculptural right from the
beginning – building and DIY materials – and is often based on a sociological/cultural context.
Then there is his way of handling materials. He does not use building materials in order to incorporate
connotations associated with a metaphor; however, he always endeavours to be as consistent as possible
in the way he uses and organises the materials.
