Stack of paper, stack of wood, stack of books. The innovative and aptly-named Stack Buffet by designer H©ctor Esrawe evokes them all. The piece-a minimalist sideboard with a pile of nonchalant wooden planks at one end-is an inspired commentary on spontaneity in design.
Stack Buffet Houses a Pair of Cleverly Hidden Drawers
Stack Buffet's wooden panels make the long, black lacquered sideboard a study in contrasts. At the intersection of Stack's far end we see an artful collision of light and dark, of smooth and striated, and of clean lines with the apparent disorganization of a random, unruly stack.
Of course, the stack in Stack is anything but, as these planks constitute an optical illusion of sorts: they are, in fact, no stack at all but a pair of drawers fronted with offset lengths of wood.
