Storage that’s unexpected.  Storage that’s surprising.  Storage that’s unique.  Storage that’s memorable.  A truly unique low bedside storage unit.

This very old yet rarely used European cabinet making technique, is based on a very effective and efficient concept……. an integrated central running system which provides lateral (left + right) guidance whilst actually opening and closing the drawer.  This clever methodology allows the drawer to be 100% visible throughout its full range of motion.

Here, we offer the drawers without the more traditional dovetail construction.  This provides a different feel to the overall piece.  It’s simply a matter of choice – some people like to see the dovetails on the corners of each drawer, whilst others prefer the more minimalist, uncluttered look.  The choice is yours.

Together with the open storage shelf, the framework consequently becomes a visual highlight in itself. This provides intrigue and lightness to the overall form.

We now also offer the low Kobei with an option of one OR two drawers.  Again, this is simply a personal preference.  Some people prefer the two drawer setup, with only a single shelf, whilst others prefer two shelves with only one drawer.  Do you prefer your items on show for easy access, or neatly hidden away to provide the seamless look?

This smaller size Kobe is so versatile and is perfect as a bedside or side table as required.  It’s usefulness will continue to surprise.

We offer a range of timbers too.  So your options have now increased even more.  Have fun working it out – timber colours, drawers with or without dovetails and a single or two drawer setup?  The good news is that the Kobei is so appealing and functional that you can’t really mess up your mixing and matching anyway!  So just go with what feels right.

Sustainability is our essence, not just a tag line.
Good Design is sustainable. Minimal materials, cleverly put together, avoiding unnecessary production and waste. Well crafted designs that last a long time, because if you buy cheap you pay twice, and so does the environment.

Sustainability is about health, avoiding bad chemicals, using non-toxic materials.  Choice of materials is important. We prefer natural fibres in our fabrics. Wools, cottons, linens, and leather.  Timber is a great choice for sustainable outcomes. Forests are good for our environment, and timber production has many eco-benefits. We prefer timbers that are properly harvested using sustainable forestry practices, and timbers that last. We use glass, or metal when that’s what the item needs to be beautiful, or functional, or to last a long time. That’s part of a sustainable outcome too.
