Curiosity Box Furniture

The Curio Table by De Intuitiefabriek Puts Cherished Belongings on Display

— June 28, 2012 — Art & Design
Like an oversized curiosity box, the Curio Table puts favorite objects on display. Great for many reasons, namely nostalgia, decor and even playfulness, by putting certain objects on display, people are able to better personalize the space that they live in aside from the typical home items such as pillows, vases, picture frames and more.

The Curio Table was designed by De Intuïtiefabriek, a studio based in The Netherlands. A mix of walnut wood, copper and smoke glass, it is comprised of three deep drawers that hold those cherished belongings. The smoke glass then encases the drawers to keep them protected from everyday wear and tear while providing a misty view of the stored items. Only a limited run of the Curio Table was produced. Seven were made, plus the prototype.
Trend Themes
1. Personalized Furniture - Designing furniture that allows people to better personalize their living space and showcase cherished objects can be a disruptive innovation opportunity for furniture brands.
2. Curiosity Cabinet Trend - Designing furniture that incorporates the curiosity cabinet trend, like the Curio Table by De Intuïtiefabriek, can be a disruptive innovation opportunity for furniture brands.
3. Limited Edition Furniture - Creating limited edition furniture pieces, like the Curio Table by De Intuïtiefabriek, can be a disruptive innovation opportunity for furniture brands looking to create exclusivity and appeal to collectors.
Industry Implications

2. Home Decor Industry - The home decor industry can leverage the curiosity cabinet trend popularized by the Curio Table to create complementary decor products.
3. Collectibles Industry - The collectibles industry can look to limited edition furniture pieces, like the Curio Table by De Intuïtiefabriek, as a new product offering to appeal to a wider market.
