CANTILEVER CHEST OF DRAWERS
Vacuum formed plywood shells supported on an aluminium frame. Maple veneer with satin lacquer finish.
Each of the four shells contains a drawer on extending runners. The drawer pulls are rebated into the undersides. Moulded ply has great strength and this piece explores the possibilities of the material. The way space permeates it, makes the drawers seem to float and gives the piece a lightness and a presence.
This is about Structure for its own sake - the idea that Structure in itself can add an extra dimension to the design.
