Statement of the jury
Once Upon a Time is a run of highly exclusive furniture, limited to just eight pieces, which may well become sought-after by collectors. The elaborately manufactured cabinet captivates with a decorative floral pattern comprised of hand-painted tiles, whose variety and triangular form give the design a very modern appearance, which is further emphasised by the straightforward overall design language of the piece in connection with the striking metal base.
