The thinner drawer in the world


Have you ever imagined that you could have a drawer depth of just 23 mm? May sound impossible, but it is a reality and created by Torafu Architects!
This shelf panel is constructed from elaborate aluminum parts, and at 34mm thick, it looks as if it’s made of natural wood.

Attaching sliced veneer to a thin structure, we made space between two boards which can be opened using magnetic keys.

When pulled, a secret 23mm thick drawer appears, it is of minimal thickness to store your valuables such as stamps and passbooks.

The impression of the shelf completely changes when its hidden aluminum space is revealed from within the sliced veneer surface.
