Stacking Cases

An exploration in modular design using kanna.

The inspiration

The stacking cases are the ideal intersection of function and form. They take their inspiration from their predecessor, the tansu chest. By utilizing construction methods from the centuries old trade of tansu making I am able to build solid cases that can serve nearly endless purposes. They are able to stack solidly, stand alone, or support surfaces, so they can fit into virtually any space and be adapted as your needs change. In addition the kanna finish gives them a spirit that cannot be matched.
