Mini Bar made from an authentic US Army ammunition box from the ’70s. A tribute to the forests!

It takes the place of a piece of art on the wall and it opens up as a functional service bar.

This creation is a tribute to the forests that were razed to build millions of military boxes – discarded after use. We call the collection: Boîtes de la paix (Peace Boxes). We give great importance to the symbolism of their new life. As well as their smart design and natural beauty.

The original boxes are not around anymore, they have become collectibles. Since they are already 40-50 years old, they’ve got genuine aging indeed. They are offered in limited editions. They are already part of two Museums collections and have been shown in different galleries and collective exhibitions in north America and in Europe.

Each box is unique, marked by the passage of time. Cracks and partly rusted hinges are part of their unicity and beauty. Pick a color and we will email you detailed pictures of 3 different Boxes we have in stock. You get to pick YOURS! Cheers!

ReMade in Montreal, Canada.
