Designed for Cairo Kitchen, the establishment wanted a station for the servers to store cutlery, condiments and napkins. Wanting to adhere to the retro style of the space, I aimed to design a piece that was old school and would add some soul to the set up.

My inspiration was the look of salvaged kitchens from the early 20th century, which I found very functional, but with a twist. The mesh used in the cabinet doors helped showcase the bright yellow interior, while providing a clear view for servers to see the contents inside. The antiqued blue finish rendered the piece as more authentically salvaged.
