Crates Cabinet series27. Nov2012

TAGS: crates, steel, frame

"The series of cabinets Krattenkast (crates cabinet), is a simple design concept: a steel frame with multicoloured, second hand crates, which act as drawers in the steel construction.
Although each crate is a different colour, height and length has differently designed ribs, the measurements of the base are the same as the crates. Due to the indiscriminate stacking of the crates, a cabinet with three or four crates can have the same height as a pile of five. The colour and design of every Krattenkast is unique, because the collection of the crates varies continuously and there also seems to be an endless number of different models of crates.
The quiet, indestructible appearance of the crates, combined with the raw, steel frame gives the cabinet an industrial, no-nonsense look." - Mark van der Gronden
