ISHITANI – Making a Medicine Chest with lots of drawers

ISHITANI - Making a Medicine Chest with lots of drawers
It was a request for remake of damaged old medicine chests.
Difficult thing was to put drawers of different sizes into one chest.
Normally, drawer sizes will be made later, but this time we used those old drawers as they are.
今回は古い薬箪笥のリメイクのご依頼でした。
二つの箪笥を一つにまとめます。
通常引き出しは後からサイズを合わせて作るのですが、今回は古い引き出しをそのまま残すので、異なるサイズの引き出しが上手く収まるように設計しなくてはなりません。
もう薬屋さんでは見かけない箪笥ですが、小さな引き出しが並んでいるのは壮観でかわいいです。また昔の薬のネーミングが秀逸です。

  1. Absolutely stunning example of up-cycling. Your finest piece to date. This is how old items should be incorporated into the new. Well done Ishitani-san.
