THE WORK

The Short Division cabinet is designed around a series of considered shapes that look to accommodate the special objects we have in our lives. It is a functional design crossing over both modern and hand crafted construction methods. The cabinet has a focus on sustainability in production, utilising FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Sapele plywood and paints and finishes which are free from Volatile Organic Compounds.
