Although a brilliantly simple idea, the bi-directional drawers required for the Stack were a real technical challenge. The drawer runners had to effectively extend over twice their own length in both directions, while still allowing the unit to be assembled. And they were highly cost sensitive as they are repeated so many times in each unit.
furnace collaberated with the Established & Sons development team to design a new drawer runner system using folded steel cases and specially designed acetal sliders. The development involved extensive testing of both SLS and CNC'ed prototype components and costing studies We also completed all the production drawings and data for the drawers, runners and the steel frame work.
