DESIGN NAME:
The New Dressing Table

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multi Functional Dressing Table

INSPIRATION:
The research process started with exploring the small living spaces as the brief suggested. The aim was about interpretation of Living, Easy, Domestic, Clear, Clean, with a bias towards how one deals with storage. This relates strongly to the decreasing amount of physical domestic space, and the way of people live their lives especially in city and town apartments. The challenge was to understand how this manifests itself in furniture. Exploring the daily lives of women and understanding problems that they were facing everyday lead the design process to end up with breaking the cliché understanding about dressing table as a furniture piece. The New Dressing Table is designed to be a problem solver which is only the result of "form follows function" process.

Here, cosmetics can be stored and accessed with ease while in use. The walnut veneered mirror also offers hidden storage units that open form the sides to store jewelry and other items. The body of the New Dressing Table is used to place handbags. Refined and functional design only is the outcome of the "form follows function" philosophy.

The sliding lids are specifically located in front of the mirror for make up storage which makes easier for user to access her make up goods while they are in use.
