Six drawers with bronze fronts complete the Sideboard, offering a simple and streamlined juxtaposition to the complex geometry of the other surfaces.

Hock does not separate design from creation. “No designer will ever fully understand his creation unless he gets physically involved,” explains Hock. As a master carpenter, Hock can make whatever he can envision, which is perhaps why his furniture pieces showcase craftsmanship to such a high degree.
