Each side of the pyramid is a separate cabinet, each with its own secret compartment and three side sliding drawers, the weight of each drawer supported by only one runner bespoke and attached to the side of each drawer. The three separate cabinets come together as one, thus making a perfect three sided pyramid. Faced with 3mm thick Mulberry Wood blocks on to solid English Walnut.
Voltaire’s famous line from Candide is carved in deep relief on the bottom drawer of each separate cabinet, and is read round when the pyramid is together. “Il Faut cultiver notre jardin”
