Curatorium by Nicholas Ozemba, a recent graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, can be likened to a cross between a miniature museum, curiosity cabinet and keepsake box. It stores carefully crafted products that can grow and change with the user over time. Inspired by the tendency people have to collect objects such as family heirlooms, trinkets, or small mementos of a treasured personal history, it boasts a minimalist Japanese-influenced design that does justice to such precious items.

Handmade out of solid maple, Curatorium by Nicholas Ozemba opens and closes like a shoebox. Inside, the surface boasts what appears to be rope or elastic to hold down the products stored within. It measures 18 inches when closed, and extends up to 27 inches in length. Stats for Intimate Miniature Museums Trending: Older & Chilly
