The brief was to design a chest of drawers without handles or visible means of opening the drawers and with restrained shadow-lines. It was to be made in oak, to match existing bedroom furniture, and strong enough to use as an occasional seat.
The resulting design was deceptively simple but demanded absolute precision of execution. The drawers are set flush with the frame and accurately mounted on touch and release runners. Should they ever fail or trap their contents, access is allowed through a back panel.
