The chest of drawers designed by Shay Alkalay (Raw Edges studio) goes beyond the limits of a traditional chest of drawers through its innovative arrangement of multi-coloured drawer units on a central structure. Fixed to this frame, the drawers can be pulled or pushed in two directions, forming a sort of irregular tower whose changing design results from the random positioning of the drawers. Stack is an original object but also a functional and practical storage unit. Can we hazard a guess at two design references? Revlving Cabinet by Shiro Kuramata and perhaps Chest of Drawers by Tejo Remy for Droog Design.
