This art piece is a custom, rope encrusted cabinet that features deep textures on black.
It was created by Ashoka Chhabra. When creating product photography featuring textured details like those seen in this photograph, the most important thing to consider is how to draw the viewer's eye to those texture features.
In this case, since the product was black, it was even more important to find the correct lighting configuration for to emphasize these features. This particular image was used to showcase Ashoka's work in an artistic furniture magazine editorial feature.
