Shipping containers as home furniture – Great idea

Shipping Container as Furniture

Well, that was the idea talented designer Sandra Mulder had and from seeing them, it was a brilliant one. I love the colors and the rugged urban feel they bring to a room, I do however doubt that these guys will easily fit into the average apartment. One thing is for certain though, they are cool.

In Sandra’s own words – In a few decades our whole world economy has become reliant on the containerization of our supply lines. Known the world over for its indestructible appearance and boxy look, the shipping container is one of the best known industrial archetypes. This modular storage system is inspired by the wonderful color mosaics that sprout to life in every harbor and container terminal the world around. The individual pieces can be stacked, tilted and rotated around in endless (color-) combinations, to create your personal container terminal for all domestic storage uses.
