During a visit to the post-modern 'Merci' in Paris, Henk Teunissen's eye fell on a weathered library bookcase. It transpired that the bookcase used to reside in the old, demolished library of Amsterdam. Henk was eager to return the bookcase to the Netherlands, but in his own inimitable style. This Balthazar Cabinet is based on the design of the bookcase. The addition of sloped edges and a few extra details has transformed the weathered bookcase into a real showpiece.
