Cinched Storage Systems

Boxer by Julian Appelius Sections Off Spaces Horizontally by Indentations

— December 6, 2012 — Art & Design
Boxer by Julian Appelius affords the user the benefits of organizing his possessions into convenient cubbies as well as the option to keep clutter concealed. Fulfilling a function similar to the much-loved IKEA shelving units, this piece comes with glazed wooden boxes that can fit inside and be used as drawers.

The structure of the object is powder-coated steel, configured into a low, long and horizontally-oriented unit. Sparse corrugation in the metal forms three pairs of indentations in the top and bottom of the storage system that subtly partition the opening into four separate boxes. Dividers can be placed in between them should one choose to leave the ledges open. Manufactured and distributed by Pulpo, Boxer by Julian Appelius is great for holding toys, books and even crockery.
