In 2003, architect Craig Bassam and creative director Scott Fellows began drafting their vision for a new kind of American luxury company. A genuine, fully integrated lifestyle brand stemming from their shared aesthetic sensibilities, it would encompass architectural projects and interiors as well as impeccably crafted furniture, lifestyle objects and personal accessories. BassamFellows’ pioneering Craftsman Modern aesthetic, which marries architectural authority with a minimal-artisanal philosophy, was introduced with the debut of the iconic BassamFellows Tractor Stool at the 2003 Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Anyone who feels that storage systems need only be drab and lifeless will feel differently after seeing the BassamFellows Tambour Credenza Series. Originally designed for use in the BassamFellows design studio, the credenzas are a supremely elegant and sturdy storage system that can be used either at home or in the office.
As they were originally designed as room dividers, the three-piece series appeals from any angle with refined details such as beautifully rounded corners. The credenzas feature horizontally sliding, tambour doors that disappear into the cabinet, revealing a perfect box with adjustable shelving. The gently curved edges of the storage cabinet are solid wood and designed for optimum durability.
By contrast to most traditional storage options, the Credenza Series is as beautiful inside as it is out. The accented shelves (pictured), offer a sense of hide and reveal, available in a series of colors inspired by and derived from the natural world. The credenzas are available in two heights – each designed to be freestanding and viewed in the round. Multiple units can be placed side by side to create an efficient room divider. A wall-hung version works beautifully as a floating buffet in a dining or conference room.
