The Shrine Storage Cube is like a box of magic. It's a 'crate-shaped hub' that's full of little rooms and secret hideaways and locked away compartments. The doors are only opened by little brass keys. For goodness sake, please don't lose them all. Then you've just got a posh box.
Designed to fit everything from a bottle of whisky to a turntable, this is a really impressive piece of design. Actually, I think it would make a very cool coffee table. But if you ever got a coffee mug ring on this, I would have to kill you in your sleep.
I never made anything like this in woodwork lessons. I made a picture frame. And it was shit. Designed by Sigurd Larsen, a Danish designer based in Berlin, it's inspired by the 'labyrinth courtyards of Berlin’s Kreuzberg neighborhood'. Is that a strong enough reason for a David Bowie video?
Yes, yes it is.
I love The Shrine Storage Cube SO MUCH. It's a gorgeous piece of design. It's also a whopping £5354.53 from Aha Life and at least four of those numbers are making me want to cry. Maybe I could hide myself in the box when the bailiffs knocked on the door.
