Winner Alba Armoire

Tue 09 2008

The Alba Armoire, is made for Pinch by an old established British firm of woodworkers. “I am passionate about keeping our wonderful cabinetmaking skills alive in the UK,” Russell says.  Alba Armoire has double doors with its asymmetric assembly of raised panels that resemble moulded plaster, it is technically complex to make: machined MDF panels are glued to a board and then coated with a hard-wearing matt lacquer.
