Lake Cabinet: Further CNC Wall Madness


The Lake Cabinet by Min|Day is the primary built feature in the master bedroom of a vacation house on a lake in rural Iowa. The Lake Cabinet challenges the modernist notion of the detail as the expression of a joint {between two or more elements}. The piece is essentially an 11’-4” x 6’-0” x 1’-6” storage cabinet lifted 12” above the floor. The architect studied the form of water ripples from several photographs of the lake. From these they developed a range of parameters for a computer animation of the behavior and interference of rippling water. The result is a massive cabinet with a surprisingly supple surface quality.


It is really nice to see the range of effects and design theories now being realized through the use of CNC technologies and computational software. This along with the CNC and Robotic built walls previously mentioned on the Ponoko blog are great examples of a new wave of designers embracing these tools and technologies.

Founded in 2000 by E.B. Min and Jeffrey L. Day, Min|Day is a multi-disciplinary design practice with studios in San Francisco, California and Omaha, Nebraska.

“We are particularly interested in combining knowledge of vernacular building methods and conventional forms of standardization with advanced digitally-controlled production systems. However, we do not choose to work from a rigid theoretical position or to adopt an ideological approach to design. Instead, we prefer to take a flexible, tactical approach that deals with immediate circumstances. With each new project we attempt to build flexible spaces that remain open to the improvisations of everyday life.”
