a relevant, timeless multifunctional element that can help realize many functions in any interior.


Description

Summary

“… out of all 'out of the box thinking' ...i created a new one....” - Tim Guldentops


The origin of this object lies in the search for a flexible (moving) element so that you are able to pick up the cupboard and it's content all at once. The result became so much more; a relevant, timeless multifunctional element that can help realize many functions in any interior.

Functions: chair, table, high table, cupboard, coffee table, bed side table, storage element, separation wall, moving box.


 

box 2.0 originated from box, with (micro) perforations in an attempt to reduce the weight even more, and to create a more flexible (de)mountable version to reduce storage/transport space.


What actions do you propose?

box is conceived with the following principle:

circular minimalism

the combo of evaluating the true relevance of a product using less materials that are put into a circular system.

  • Evaluating the true relevance of a product
  • Using minimalism and the tendency to search for products that uses less and less materials and energy use, to simplify construction methods to make it available in any local workshop.
  • the materials that are used could be put into a circular system/economy.
