Designer Tyrone Stoddart has created BOXED, an adaptable and multi-functional piece of furniture in a suitcase. The piece transforms into at least four types of furniture.
BOXED can be easily put together to form a desk, a coffee table, two stools, and a lamp. The different components of the furniture can then be disassembled and put back into its wooden case.
This piece of furniture is not only designed to be functional, but it is also meant to educate people about chalara or ash dieback, a disease that has been killing ash trees. BOXED comes with a small pouch of ash tree seeds so that its new owner can replant and replenish the materials used to make the furniture.
Watch the clips below to see how BOXED was created and how it is used.
