#382081 - Full Wall Cabinet

Every time we get asked to design a large piece like this full wall cabinets, storage is always the major request that a client needs. It is challenging to create a massive storage space that doesn’t look bulky and boring since we only work with solid wood. Working with single material is not a bad thing since that’s why our client chooses to work with us is because of the materials that we use. Plus, since ‘Design for ageing with grace’ is what we stand for, we believe solid wood as a natural material can stand the test of time.

#382080 - Custom-made Work Desk

A custom-made desk for our returning client.

He first purchased our Pause Chair last Christmas, and after settling in about half a year into his new apartment, he asked us to design a simple work desk based on his favourite Pause chair. ‘Just a simple work desk’ he said, no cords cover, holes for electronics all that stuff. He just wanted us to capture the element and spirt of Pause Chair, with the use of our premium solid oak and natural bare pale wood wax. Sometimes when a client asked for something simple, just too simple, it’s very intimidating and challenging as they know so well about what they want, especially our client is a watch designer himself. 

Huge relieved that we didn’t let him or ourselves down. We love the way he articulates the workspace, with a few essentials to reduce any distractions and focus on what truly matters.

European vs American Oak

Obviously, not all oaks are the same. I’m writing up this post because The Extendable Collection we started using European oak instead of American oak that we always use. Thus this is a topic that I want to educate myself anyways. Therefore I thought why not just share and do a quick sum-up of what I founded.

The Desire for Improvements

⁣⁣We launched #TEC around last Christmas, and the design was set in stone. But since we have put the ‘prototype’ at our showroom for display, and us actually using it every single day, we noticed there’re few structural, and hardware improvements can be made. To customers who ordered it, excuse us for taking extra time to perfect everything, and we are sure it worths the wait. #TEC is on its way, and we’ll be in touch shortly for delivery.   ⁣
