We were commissioned to make a shelving unit for a small home office.
The brief was that it should be wall mounted to give an unobstructed view of the marble floor, have glass shelves to display a collection of ceramic and glass art pieces and house a laser printer.
Cluster Ash was chosen for the cabinets and timber shelves and the glass shelf supports were made in solid European Ash. We finished the Ash with a water-based lacquer to maintain the whiteness of the Ash which reduces the yellowing effect of ultraviolet rays.
The 12mm thick toughened glass shelves are cantilevered in a tapered slot in the verticals and gravity keeps them in place.
The large right-hand panel is opened with a touch operated latch and drops down to reveal a pull-out shelf that the printer sits on. Power and data cables are managed between the wall and the back of the cabinet.
The cabinet is complemented with a version of our “Eilean” table also made in cluster and plain Ash with a bronze patinated foot plate.
Working from Home - Stuck for Space?
Have you seen our Fold Desk?
We designed the desk specifically to suit those who are working from home but are limited on space.
The Fold Desk comes in two different sizes, can be sitting or standing, and comes with a choice of two different finishes. The desk also folds out to create a generous work surface 65 cm deep. Laptops and other items can remain on the lower desktop when it is closed.
