So many of the objects we bring into our kitchens have a real beauty about them –whether functional kitchen vessels or artisan items. We felt that a modern version of a traditional Welsh dresser that uses light to magnify the pleasure and experience of seeing these objects should use light, shadow and colour as part of its function.

We created a dresser that celebrates light, by creating a light box behind the back and the underside of the countertop. In this way there would be less need for candles, except on the table, as the light dresser would glow within the kitchen and the colour and brightness chosen by a remote control.

When we first started designing the modern cottage collection we wanted to have each piece of furniture incorporate it’s own lighting, becoming a light experience itself. The dresser was the most serious attempt to do this. We were inspired by the film 2001; A Space Odyssey where the walls of the space station glowed, the lighting being concealed in the surface and the effect was close to enhanced daylight.More
