Bounce by Rouxin Li
Updated: Jan 26
Bounce is cabinet without a door designed by Rouxin Li, an Industrial Design Master student at the School of Art and Design Burg Giebichenstein in Halle, Germany.
Bounce introduces a new concept of enclosure. Li's initial intention was to build a door for a normal shelf that doesn't need to open and close. she also wanted the user to know exactly where the item he/she needs is located. So, she decided to work with an translucent elastic material. During her search for the right material she realized that silicone has great flexibility as well as semi transparency.
41 Silicone strips are fixed along the width of the door vertically to create a semi enclosure and transparency without the need of an actual door.
