BOXINBOX by Keiji Ashizawa
In collaboration with Tanseisha, Keiji Ashizawa recently designed BOXINBOX. Comprised of a sleek metal frame and oak-veneered plywood sliding boxes, the piece is an ultimate exploration into minimalism.
Instead of moving on to something new, Ashizawa decided to look back on a previous design done last year, modifying and improving upon it by giving them Russian doll characteristics. The nesting shelves allow for the chest to be transported in a much more economical fashion.
You can see Ashizawa’s shelf, along with shelving systems designed by 10 other big names in the Japanese design circle, at the Axis Gallery starting Sept. 27.
