'The genius of a Shaker piece often seems to lie in what is not there. Whether a blanket chest, chair or box, the work will be balanced and beautiful because of reduction of design as well as attention to detail'
Brook studio’s leather shaker boxes are a refreshing interpretation of an 18th century icon. The boxes combine three sensory materials – tactile vegetable tanned leather, a fragrant cedar base with swirling grain and a lift off lid in rich English Oak or Beech reclaimed from a London townhouse.
The boxes incorporate all of the honesty, simplicity and utility that trademark Shaker design. With a simple slot and tab construction that is reminiscent of the Shaker finger motif, a glue-less wedge securing the handle, and authentic shaker copper tacks throughout. No detail is present without its function.
