raw edges: breadbox

‘breadbox’ by raw edges image by lucas hardonk

tel aviv natives and okay studio members yael mer and shay alkalay of raw edges have created ‘breadbox’ during a collaborative workshop organized by dutch furniture company arco. both a shelf and a container, this interactive unit draws its mechanics from the parallel hinging strips of vintage sewing boxes, the kind that arco used to make in its earlier years. the result is a wall-mounted bread bin which is split along a diagonal plane and joined by parallel hinges concealed inside. with deliberate efforts to keep it simple, a bread knife functions as the object’s handle, opening the box with a lifting movement.

  • Perhaps it hanging in the air.

  • I am curious how the upper part will works being opened down. They are not on the same axe (level)

  • aggressive …. yet interesting

  • Very nice and original way to reuse this classic mechanism

  • Nice, i want one.
