I developed the Silverton collection while working for a domestic furniture manufacturer (now defunct) in 2013. The overall dimensions of each piece, as well as the rough shape of the top edge and drawer edge details, were suggested by an outside designer who was collaborating with the company. I was responsible for refining the design, developing the CAD models, creating cost estimates, writing cut lists, doing the CAM work, developing the required fixturing, building prototypes, and building initial production pieces.
