japanese torafu architects has collaborated with ichiro to produce the ‘koloro-wagon’, a mobile wagon comprised of three sets of stackable container boxes with handles.  influenced by the idea of hidden furniture storage systems, the units can be separated and carried around like baskets. if users grip the two L-shaped handles together, the units transform into baskets similar to those used for shopping. if configured vertically, they act as supports for when they are stacked-up. also available in a variety of color combinations, the portable storage cabinets adapt to different user needs and provide individual functionality for specific uses.

  • Brilliant!!! I am going to build a set for myself… based on this idea! These trolleys have been around for many years but this redesign and execution is surely way the best yet!
