11 Boxes by Studio Vit:

studio vit is proud to present their first collection, 11 boxes, at the Milan Furniture Fair 2011.

11 Boxes by Studio Vit

11 boxes is a typology of storage units based on the idea of an archetypal box, each one distinguished by its shape and structural elements. Like characters in an alphabet, the boxes can be used on their own or grouped together, in the same way that single letters make words.

A playful and changeable collection, the boxes can form infinite unique compositions depending on the situation, available space and storage needs. Made from solid maple, each unit is equally finished on all sides and thus can be positioned anywhere in a room.

studio vit is the result of a collaboration and dialogue between Swedish designers Helena Jonasson and Veronica Dagnert.

    I was just about to write a nasty comment. But this is too easy. I actually like boxes. I use them all the time. Some of my boxes have holes in them. I like holes too.

  • polly

    placement of the hole is perfect. genius. i sit in wonder

  • Jeff

    MAYBE ONE OF THE BOXES COULD FIT INSIDE ANOTHER BOX … AND THEN YOU COULD TRY TO LOOK THOUGH THE HOLE TO SEE IF ANOTHER BOX IS IN THE BOX YOUR LOOKING THROUGH …

    Nice, regular boxes. Please care to elaborate what makes these boxes Dezeen-worthy.

      yes that is what is was wondering.. i did send some pictures of my latest design that was in a exhibition in Milan but never heard anything but boxes are interesting enough maybe commercial interest or a friend of the one in charge.

    Mam/Woman makes box – is this a story, oh no but man/woman makes different sizes of box – now there's a story. glad the temptation of boxing clever or thinking outside the box was avoided. There was a time when designers used to innovate not just recreate the same thing looking slightly difficult – the problem of the box has been dealt with – jog on.

    I find these incredibly satisfying. Beautifully detailed (check that lovely hinging on the left in photo 5). I'd buy them in an instant if I had a big rambling house and loads of money, which I don't.

    beautiful.

  • Hercule Poirot

    There's one misfit: a box without a bottom is definitely not a box !

  • Gertuz

    Are these boxes ment to be bird houses?.
