The sculptural cabinet altar that encapsulates the childhood memory of my mother’s dresser. It consisted of a jumble of drawers, compartments and shelves. It was a storage for personal artifacts, jewellery as well as travel keepsakes.

This memory inspired me to design a furniture memento. Its heart lies in the drawer unit, consisting of fifteen red drawers upholstered in red velvet. It is an intimate space for storing personal valuables.

The furniture is meticulously hand-crafted in the Czech Republic in a limited edition of twelve pieces.
