Always seeking a solution for displaying little collections in a stylish way, I was taken with these new boxes by Tecta. They are inspired by the art of Joseph Cornell, and create a striking environment to display your own random collected objects.

The Cornell Box was conceived of by British architect Alison Smithson back in 1988 and is finally in production by German based furniture company Tecta. Though they most likely sport a handsome price tag, I feel like there is inspiration to be drawn from these boxes and their cool asymmetrical form. They come in 3 different variations: a tabletop box and a single or double stand version. Whether it's vinyl figurines, exotic seashells or vintage matchbooks that have caught your fancy, perhaps a wall box like this will allow you to enjoy them even more!
