We were commissioned by a collector to make a box to store documents relating to their art collection. This is a good example where the initial research into the project generated an interesting design concept. Angus found out that the collection started when the couple gave up smoking and put the money saved towards buying art. The flip top cigarette carton with it's gold foil lining suggested the shape of the box and the hinged door lined in gold leaf.
Materials: oak, scorched oak, burr oak and gold leaf.
