A modern take on a centuries-old design. This stack of modular cabinets (boxes) filled with drawers and sliding doors draws inspiration from tansu cabinets commonly found in peasant and artisan homes of 18th and 19th century Japan. Though most originals are simple cabinets that served utilitarian ends, they have come to be admired for their unique forms and joinery. This modern version serves as a woodworkers take on the Japanese tansu called Kaidan-dansu, or stair chest; in place of heavy iron corners, hinges, and hardware, we have used all-wood joinery, as well as wood drawer slides and pulls.
