Danish designer and cabinetmaker Rasmus Fenhann assembled small timber offcuts like a puzzle to produce the monolithic-looking Ebano drawers, featured in our Dezeen x The Mindcraft Project 2021 collaboration.
One of 10 designs featured in The Mindcraft Project exhibition of experimental design, Ebano came about after a fellow cabinetmaker gave Fenhann the collection of timber pieces, leftover from an ebony tree felled a decade ago.
Keen to highlight the rich pattern of marks left by axes and chainsaws, Fenhann carefully arranged the pieces into the solid-seeming Ebano structure, which stands 111 centimetres tall.
The texture is meant to invite touch — which might be the only way to spot the seven drawers built into the object. Made of refined rosewood with a deep red hue, they contrast the ebony in both texture and colour when opened.
