Pisac cabinets with asymmetrical drawer and door fronts by Jiun Ho.

Unlike most globe-trotters who return weighed down with mementos, Jiun Ho stows his travel keepsakes in his memory and imagination. With the Jiun Ho Collection V, the designer makes tangible the influences he’s encountered in Asia, Africa, Europe, and North and South America. The Ica shelving unit in flat-sawn oak owes its origins to the work of Dutchman Piet Mondrian—note the brightly lacquered storage boxes—as well as stonework found in Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas, realized in the cast-bronze shelf supports. The same references shaped Pisac, a suite of cabinets with asymmetrical drawer and door fronts, some also highlighted with colorful lacquers. The Peruvian stones alone informed the Acora table’s cast-bronze base, with its top of rift-sawn oak. The entire collection can be viewed at the designer’s new showroom within Dennis Miller Associates, at the New York Design Center.
