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.
