design et al are delighted to announce Douglas Design Studio have been successfully shortlisted for this year’s International Product Design Awards 2016. Their Damson product will compete for the Bespoke Cabinetry Awards at the 2016 ceremony in London.
Inspired by the Art Deco period, the idea was to create a piece that has no standard parts while using authentic, solid materials. Details are of the essence: custom bronze hinges, custom bronze drawer glides, and a sophisticated tubular system supporting glass shelving. Made from architectural bronze and finished with a pearlescent lacquer, the Damson credenza adds luxury to any space.
Constructed using architectural bronze, the Damson credenza is a structural piece, using square rods to support the case. The tubes of the rods are then used to hang leather-lined drawers that pull out from the ends of the unit. Bronze panels open to reveal glass shelving accessible from both the front and back.
A 95 degree hinge was developed for the center door, while a touch latch opener and mitered edge makes for seamless functioning. A high-gloss, pearlized lacquer was selected to contrast the architectural bronze. In addition to its glamourous aesthetic and functional design, Damson offers a very surprising amount of storage.
