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.
