This chest of drawers was the first piece in our Rippled Collection, where our main aim was to push laminating in a whole new direction. Edward developed this alongside his emerging style, reflecting an elegant, clean and fluid form which allows the material itself to add the detail. Originally inspired by the action of a stone dropping into water, Edward wanted to give the illusion of the subsequent concentric ripples engulfing the entire cabinet. Bringing movement and life to the entire piece, not just to one surface. Each of the twelve hand-cut dovetailed drawers opens with the slightest touch, sliding with ease and releasing the aroma of the cedar lined interior.

Ripples won the Wood Awards in 2013 – The UK’s premier award for excellence in design in wood. Winning the bespoke furniture category, the judges (John Makepeace, Rod Wales, Katie Walker & Sean Sutcliffe) described the piece as ‘… an excellent mix of restraint and flamboyance; exuberant in design, yet restrained in practice. It is timely that ash is used in a context of luxury to make such an extraordinary object.’
