There is no opposition against going back to basics when those basics are clean design, fine craftsmanship, and straightforward functionality. Designer Wouter Scheublin returns to reliable wood and metal for the construction of Boxes, a series of simple containers perfect for the everyday. The variations made use of different lid types; some are hinged metal in an olive shade, others are a sliding design in a pure white, while others are a removable lipped lid. The contrast of materials is a powerful yet subtle statement, and its minimalism elevates these from purely storage units to unique collectibles.
