The Elan Armoire is a modern take on the classic cabinetry technique; Marquetry, and is a piece that offers beauty and artistry inside and out. The original inspiration comes from a sculpture made by Russell’s father, which Russell interpreted into a line drawing, and is then further transposed into the marquetry inlay. Three harmonious birch veneers are combined to create a gentle yet dimensional color story, layered across the abstract, amorphous shapes that decorate the doors.
In bringing this piece to life, Pinch were keen to develop all elements of the Armoire and worked with their Dorset workshop to develop an internal hanging and shelving system within the Sycamore cupboard, as well as commissioning their own cast brass, copper plated handles and hinges. The Elan Armoire has been developed with clothes storage in mind, but can also be made for living area use, as the internal ladder system, (which is based on the pre Industrial revolution technique for creating adjustable shelving), allows customers to select their own hanging/shelf and drawer combinations.
White oiled sycamore with marquetry front. Copper handles.
