Eye On Design: Sketch Chest of Drawers By Malabar

Truly blending the worlds of furniture and art in a clear tribute to designer / architect Ettore Sottsass, the rule-breaking creative team at Malabar has designed this versatile piece of art furniture: the Sketch Chest of Drawers.

Sottsass was a member of the Italian design collective — inspired by the popular art movements at the time, Art Deco and Pop Art — known as The Memphis Group; a riotous rejection of sensible modernism whose debut collection caused a sensation at Milan’s 1981 Salone del Mobile. Known for its bright and bold furniture design style, The Memphis Group continues to inspire artists and create  trends in interiors and furniture.

If you’re unsure whether it’s a shelving unit, a room divider, or art, well, that’s the point. With a rich palette and mix of Verde Guatemala and Rosso Levanto marbles, polished and brushed brass, and walnut, black stained ash wood, and Tanganyika wood leaves, this handcrafted chest of drawers is like a sketch infusion of Memphis’ DNA.

The Sketch chest of drawers will bring an abundance of  joy into the design of your personal space.
