Recess is a minimalist drawer system designed by Rotterdam-based studio Earnest Studio for Furnishing Utopia. The project is a system of modular drawers that takes inspiration from Shaker chests and built-ins. Each drawer is a separate unit that can be used individually, in stacks, side-by-side and/or on legs, with nesting forms holding the various elements in position. The repetition of a single base component allows for economy both in production and in use, while the shallow proportion is ideal for tidying and building out a wide variety of compositions. Produced in blue-black stained ash wood and matte, powder-coated steel.
