Drawer Shelf by Keiji Ashizawa Design

November 4th, 2011 by retail design blog

What if a furniture transformed itself to adjust to different needs, rather than standing still? The hardware that makes the sliding motion possible was designed to be functionally efficient and visually minimal, by combining bent and straight plates. Whereas in a normal drawer design the rails tend to be hidden, here we made them simple enough that we wanted to expose them.

The same rails used for the drawers are also used for the box units to slide against each other. The drawers are detailed to have a monolithic look when stowed, so that the boxes look like blocks of wood forming a stack of shelves.
