Bedroom Cabinet

de-constructing the bedroom chair

Concept 

The idea for the bedroom cabinet came from noticing how a piece of furniture designed to fulfil one function may be used for a completely different one. In this case how a chair in a bedroom may actually be used for hanging clothes.

The frame of the bedroom cabinet is a de-constructed chair, and provides “hooks” from which to hang clothes. The cabinet has five drawers for storing laundered clothes with tassel handles that refer to the clothing inside.

Materials

Solid oak and high-quality oak veneer are used in its construction, with the oak veneer book-leafed to produce a mirror pattern on the drawer fronts. The finish is raw/natural.

The bedroom cabinet was shown in the Going Solo exhibition in London in 1997 and the furniture shop Haus, London in 1998.
