Shanty Cabinet

by BD Barcelona Design


The Shanty Cabinet, designed by Doshi Levien for BD Barcelona Design, is an evocative design inspired by the improvised structures made from corrugated iron or plastic sheets found in shanty towns the world over. The distinctive shape and colours of the cabinet lend it an industrial air, making it a standout piece in any room, whether it is in a commercial or residential space.

The Shanty cabinet is available in 2 sizes: Large or Small and 2 colour combinations: Summer (multi-coloured) or Winter (grey and white), please make your selection in the options above. The Large version comes with folding doors and a set of three drawers whilst the Small version comes only with folding doors.
