These are designed by Rupert Blanchard. He says: "I collect hundreds of drawers, doors, fittings and fixtures before finding the right combination to construct a new piece. I only use broken, discarded and odd drawers that no longer have a carcass therefore work can often sit unfinished for many months as I search for the elusive, perfect drawer to finish the design. The search can take me far and wide building relationships with second-hand furniture dealers, car boot sellers, market stall holders and waste clearance companies selecting items that would often be disposed of without a second thought. Every item has its own tale to tell as I prolong its history and preserve its future."
