This drawer toolbox looks so different to what you might expect that it can actually serve to make its function a mystery. Typically, you'll see beaten up wooden chests or dented metal containers holding items like nails, screws, hammers and wrenches, yet this elegant creation by Keiji Ashizawa is surprisingly neat and meticulously crafted.
It makes sense, of course, that a carpenter's equipment should be kept in a well-built case, serving as an indication of the precise and pristine work that its master can execute with raw materials. Here, we have four identical timber trays that are partitioned with inner dividers, and all components are stacked into the arrangement of a miniature chest of drawers. The harmonious combination of fine hand-forged steel frames and pale Nakamura woodworking produce a purist and minimalist object that you'll be proud to display.
