Challenging the conventions of a traditional drawer unit, Stack consists of eight individual, multicoloured drawers that can be opened in both directions, appearing to float and suspended above one another. The result is a vivid, graphic design that stands both as an impressive, colourful sculpture and practical storage unit. A showstopping addition to the contemporary home, the tactile drawers can be moved and re-positioned to create changing shapes and compositions over time; a fascinating, eye-catching design that celebrates a random formality.
