Drawing Cabinet

The brief for this piece was to create a cabinet to hold a collection of drawings. The final design is based on an architect’s plan chest, with the classic shallow drawers given modern soft close runners, for a smoother and more precise action. The drawer fronts are graduated in size, with an undulating curve that modulates its shape as it goes down the cabinet.

Made with drawing preservation in mind, the cabinet uses conservation materials and finishes throughout. The drawer interiors are in unfinished beech, with the cabinet exterior in elm. The drawer fronts are made from gently rippled sycamore.
