UTOPIA’s Bamboo Fibonacci Cabinet Brings the Golden Ratio Into Your Home

The Fibonacci sequence  occurs frequently in nature – from the structure of a nautilus shell to the scales of a pine cone or center of a sunflower . Now Italian design studio UTOPIA  has created a bamboo Fibonacci Cabinet that allows you to bring the genius of the universe into your home! Inspired by a traditional Chinese medicine cabinet, the system consists of seven separate units that combine to form the Golden Ratio (and a beautiful piece of furniture).
The aptly-named UTOPIA  design studio has harnessed the wisdom of nature to build a modern, elegant cabinet. Constructed from eco-friendly bamboo , the Fibonacci Cabinet  takes its dimensions from the Golden Ratio . Each of the seven drawers is a different size that conforms to the mathematical series. They can be removed independently from their partners, letting the owner use the elements individually or as a complete set. Chinese-style legs support the puzzling piece of furniture, and the stand can be separately used to create a table. The Fibonacci Cabinet is available for sale through the company’s website with price provided upon inquiry.
