yuya vs design



My feeling of living in EU was like nomadic people. I have lived with a lot of cardboard “Banana” boxes. It was used as a container, shelf and cabinet etc... The Banana box was very useful and strong. It could be collected easily at supermarket, and it was free!

However, some people seem to be reluctant to placing a cardboard box in the living room. So I tried to make a box which suits there.

As a living room object, I chose thin plywood and brass as materials. The plywood has been bent by a plurality of slits placed accurately by laser cutting, the smooth curved surface has given a soft impression.

Chiquita is possible to stack up from all three directions, and it can be opened from all faces. Furthermore, it can be modify the size easily.
