30 Wonderful Surprises in Boxes

From Kitchens in Boxes to Boxed Bikes

— May 26, 2009 — Art & Design
Unopened boxes are wonderful because our inner Pandora can't help but wonder what's housed inside.

Have you ever seen a kitchen in a box? What about an entire guest bedroom in a box? After having a peak through this cluster of curious, surprising innovations housed inside boxes, your imagination will run even more wild next time you see a cubic shape.

Implications - Consumers nowadays prefer compact items that have multi-functional capabilities. When it comes to living in the city, this design concept becomes all the more important due to the limited spaces that many housing often suffer from. Designers and brands who employ this approach will profit from a market who require a good balance between size and functionality that's not seen too often in the design industry.
