Barcelona-based designers Antxon Salvador and Roger Zanni just launched a new online-only startup — called kazam! — and their first production run is the BrickBox, a modular shelving system. It's basically a slicker, better version of a milk-crate bookcase.
Like the milk-crate shelves you might have used to store your albums in college, the BrickBox is composed of individual carrying cases with handles that form a bookcase when flipped on end and stacked together. The difference is that these are made from birch plywood that's been laminated, and they connect together with a set of plugs and screws.
There are two sizes: large (36 x 27 x 54 centimeters) and small (36 x 27 x 27 centimeters). The small boxes cap off the ends of the shelves if you prefer a uniform edge.
Available in Spain, these sell per individual crate — €39.95 for the large and €29.95 for the small. Salvador and Zanni are currently on the lookout for foreign distribution.
