Called Pivot, the unit rests against the wall and features drawers that pivot open rather than sliding.
Here's some text about the piece from Alkalay:
design by Raw-Edges, Shay Alkalay
This surprising cabinet is ideally suited to storing small items and everyday necessities in order to make sure these are always in the same place. Very useful during morning rush hour at home!
The solid wood cabinet is built on tall legs and features two drawers.
The innovative aspect of this cabinet is the fact that the drawers can hinge, making it possible to open both at the same time, which is impossible with a conventional set of drawers.
Available in: lacquer, solid oak, solid American walnut.
