Chest of drawers , Established & Sons, STACK 13 DRAWERS, Raw Edges, 2008.
All of the usual characteristics of a chest of drawers have been challenged by Shay Alkalay in his design for Stack. Most usually a chest of drawers consists of an exterior frame, back panel and series of individual drawers with runners. The height of the unit is limited to the size of the frame and the drawer can only be opened in one direction. Stack escapes these formal confines through the application of an entirely new arrangement. These individual, multi-coloured, floating drawer units make use of a centrally placed frame. Upon this a tower of drawers that can be pushed and pulled in both directions is built. The random and irregular pattern created by the positioning of the drawers creates a rich and wonderful spectacle of colour and kinetic form. Stack can be appreciated as a sculptural object as well as an entirely functional, practical item of furniture. Stack is offered in two standard sizes and three colour palettes as well as wood veneer finish.
