My first piece. Designed to complement a Parker buffet in my home which my parents bought when they got married.
Vintage and Danish furniture from the 1950's and 60's are a strong influence in my work. These pieces have achieved what I believe is the ultimate measure of design success - timelessness. I learn from these designs, finding inspiration in their lines and shapes.
What I most want to achieve in my work is the creation of heirloom pieces, that like my parent's buffet, will be passed on to bring joy and comfort to another owner someday.
This design has no drawer or door handles. Instead the layering of the door panels within the cabinet, uses the gap between to open the drawers and door. The shadow created between adds depth and frames the piece.
The outside is in American oak. The drawers boxes in Kauri and Poplar. The cupboard space is lined in walnut, whilst the legs are in Elm from a tree that once lined the streets of Melbourne, before it passed away.
