While storage boxes are useful to have at home and in the office, they can also get in the way when you no longer need them for storing purposes.
“THE STORAGE BOX” can be easily constructed and deconstructed without causing damage to the box. By simply pulling up the sides, built-in magnets work to immediately transform the structure into a storage box with a lid. When it is not being used as a box, it becomes a flat board and takes up very little space.
The sizes of “THE STORAGE BOX” were developed using A4 and A5 standard paper sizes as a reference. As a matter of fact, we are surrounded by many products, which are designed to match standard paper sizes. For example, Japanese paperback books are A6 size, and T-shirts and dress shirts can be folded up neatly into approximately A4 size. The smaller box is made to fit inside the bigger box and the height of the big box is just right for holding widely distributed office supplies, such as clear folders and flat files.
The big boxes come in two colors: black and night gray. The small boxes come in three colors: khaki pink, French blue, and baby blue. All together, there are five available colors.
“THE STORAGE BOX” is manufactured by TAISEI Corporation, known for their work on packaging of high-end cosmetics and sweets brands. They are located in Osaka, the first region in Japan to mass-produce paper boxes in the Meiji era.
The boxes are made using 2-3mm of strong chipboard and covered with highly durable vinyl paper cloth. The result is a strong practical storage box that is hard to damage even when rebuilt numerous times.
