The piece has a volume of one cubic metre and consists of seven separate modules that can be recombined in various configurations.

    cool concept – but all open sided boxes makes for storing items within the cube impractical it seems.

    Neat. But I would never be able to get it back together. And it has zero usability. But it reminded me somehow of a steamer trunk we had in the attic when I was a boy: it split in the middle and placed on edge, one side was for hanging clothes the other had a row of drawers. Now that was practical. Somehow the meter cube should have offered similar.

    i think it’s trendy because a lot of designers design a cube this year….

    I like it, because when you get round to finally chucking it away, it breaks down into various configurations for the wheelie bin and you don't have to call the council to collect it.
