Called Slybox, the piece of storage has five draws of decreasing size.

    if there is anything heavy in one of those drawers and it's pulled out all the way or you pull out more than one at a time it looks very much like it will just topple over.

      this is mitigated by having the larger drawers at the bottom, and i think people are sensible enough to see that putting their telephone book collection in one drawer while nothing is in the others is a bad idea. maybe your concern is actually caused by the success of the designer in making the product look so light

  • Tricky

    Wow, this is awesome.
    Super minimal I would say….

  • Felix

    the 'guard' around the top is nice. the wheels imply that you can tilt the whole thing backwards and wheel it around, which is a nice touch as long as it's stable enough to do so

    i don't like drawers which aren't closed to the air though; it allows dust in. and there are no proper handles

  • Yeah, it allows dust in. So is a furniture nudism.

    This morning in my half sleep I had this vision in seeing this project in Dezeen: many young designers influenced by the Dutch design and the possibility of digital technologies Others designers designed minimal structure, they are German, American, Japanese, French designers… Result: the Dutch design have a style but also an original educational and operating system…. Others are in the art of reduction ( see vitra museum) …. In my opinion in these two cases, they will become marginalized , a reduction of furniture design ?
