German brand Tecta have put into production a series of storage boxes on sticks originally designed by the late British architect Alison Smithson in 1988.
Called Cornell Boxes, the open-fronted units have little shelves slotted into them and are sat atop an iron stand.
The collection also includes a smaller unit that sits on a turntable.
The boxes were launched at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan last month.

Here's a tiny bit of text from London retailers Aram:
British architect Alison Smithson designed the Cornell Boxes in 1988. She was inspired by Joseph Cornell, the American artist who collected and carefully juxtaposed found objects in simple, usually glass-fronted boxes.
Cornell Boxes are now in production and were recently launched at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. They are made of lacquered wood on a nickel plated turntable base or black lacquered iron frames and measure 49 x 20 x 53h cm, 54 x 20 x 137h cm or 117 x 20 x 153h cm. In store in September, price from £513.50.
