The Analogue Box Affords a Place to Subtly and Playfully Hide Possessions

— November 29, 2011 — Art & Design
In no way should the Analogue Box be treated like a vault, because, as one can plainly see, the prospect of removing and replacing pieces from the cover of the cabinet easily lends itself as a delightful activity. Dean Brown designed the object with the intent that the knickknacks placed within should be prized by the owner, but it may be best that such items should chosen for their lack of value to anyone other than the possessor.

In Tetris and Block fashion, the rectangular aperture of the cubbyhole can be closed up using the colorful wooden bricks, arranged to fit precisely together. A small LED light designed by David Penuela has been placed within the Analogue Box which emits a glow through the gaps and suggests the significance of the articles inside.
Trend Themes
1. Interactive Storage - The Analogue Box showcases the trend of interactive storage by providing a playful and unique way to hide and display possessions.
2. Customizable Furniture - The use of colorful wooden bricks in the design of the Analogue Box taps into the trend of customizable furniture, allowing individuals to arrange the bricks in various configurations.
3. Smart Home Decor - With the inclusion of a small LED light that emits a glow, the Analogue Box aligns with the smart home decor trend, adding a tech element to traditional furniture.
Industry Implications
1. Interior Design - Interior design professionals can take advantage of the trend of interactive storage to create unique and engaging storage solutions for their clients.
2. Furniture Manufacturing - The customizable nature of the Analogue Box presents an opportunity for furniture manufacturers to create more personalized and innovative storage options for consumers.
3. Home Decor Retail - Retailers in the home decor industry can tap into the smart home decor trend by offering products like the Analogue Box that combine technology and design.
