The world has come to a stop in this object. From west to east and north to south, the International is truly international. Combining timber from across the world – from New Zealand grown walnut, to Lebanese cedar, to American maple – the International is a peace message to the world. There is an interesting combination of functions in this tri-component object. The top chest can be separated to function on its own as a storage box. The lower part can serve as a drawer unit and storage case. All together, the trio is perfect as a side table for any sitting or bedroom. Viewed from above the object is inspired by a Mondrian painting. It is a cubist combination of forms, with different dimensions and relationships.
