The first collection by Melbourne’s TUCKBOX really caught my eye. I discovered it on social media recently (where all the good stuff is) and had to know more.
Did I mention there’s copper involved? Say no more!
The Klein collection comprises of a number of stools/side tables in various heights, a coffee table and a wall mountable hallway table for tight spaces. Let’s face it, we could all find a space or use for one of the beauties, whether it’s as bedsides, next to a freestanding bath tub, at the breakfast bar, around a table or next to the lounge for your cuppa and book.
If you don’t see exactly what you’re after, the good news is, you can customise too. Just contact them with your ideas.
The collection represents the journey of its designer and maker, Dan de Groot, from a cool design office in London to a dusty shed full of timber, steel and old machinery in Melbourne’s north. Dan, an industrial designer, started the business with his brother Ant and wife Prue over a long lunch in December last year. They had an idea for furniture that embraced the shadows and light of the Australian seasons, with simple lines and a modern character.
“At the heart of this collection is the ability to customise. From our timber top shapes, to finishes, sizes and base colours, there is so much flexibility,” Dan explains. “We like seeing the character of our products change when the customising takes place and customers make them their own.”
Responding to increasingly compact urban environments, pieces in the Klein collection are designed to work in smaller spaces, be stackable, transport easily and become loved items in your home or workspace.
We’re looking forward to seeing what they come up with next!
