‘bon drawer’ is a set of stacked oak veneer boxes which sit within a light metal frame on wheels, making the storage unit easy to move around. designed by keiji ashizawa, the furniture piece’s five trays can each be fully removed from the structure to become display boxes, revealing and offering easier access to the objects inside.

  • i don’t buy the wheel functionality (see last picture)…that\’s not how you move things. the wheel\’s got to be on the smaller legs to be able to move in that direction.

    swank says:
  • I think the drawing is wrong. it should be pushed (behind the wheel) not pulled from the front like drawing show.
