Brief: This piece was designed for a private client. I was delighted to have the opportunity to research the strong archetypal aesthetics from Asian culture including the traditional architectural forms of construction and spiritual awareness.
The concept was to create a unique Asian inspired display cabinet which would celebrate the tradition craft work and traditions. A collection of beautiful silk drawers are housed inside a slatted construction. This type of construction blurs the boundaries inside-outside and offers a voyeuristic glimpse of the drawers inside.
