“Toolboxes” from Roº and Aurelien Barbry.

I don’t have a lot of superfluous stuff. When you downsize your living space by more than half, you tend to get ri of all the junk you thought you needed, but never really use. Another thing that comes with downsizing your living space is the need to organize, and store the stuff you do use. Because of that, i am always on the lookout for storage solutions that look better than cheap plastic trays, and drawer organizers.


This afternoon I came across Toolboxes designed by Australian Aurelien Barbry studio and made by RO, a Copenhagen based company. Each box is hand made using using native Ash wood.  Toolboxes are designed to be both serving trays and boxes for magazines, newspapers, and other smaller objects. I’m thinking they would work well storing any number of things around the house.


Each Toolbox has a built in handle and has feel that is similar to early 20th century carpenters boxes. There is a simple elegance to the aesthetics, with clean minimal lines, enhanced by the natural warmth of the wood. They are contemporary and at the same time feel familiar.
