Winner – Bespoke Cabinetry Award

design et al are delighted to announce that Douglas Design Studio¬†won this year’s Bespoke Cabinetry Awards in the International Product Design Awards.

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.
