3216 The Crate Series

Re-interpreting the container, Studio Makkink & Bey engage our perceptions of what a product’s purpose is. These shipping crates, normally used to temporarily house goods, take on a more solitary role as a sized down household unit. The Crate Series re-defines functional, ordinary objects by infusing them with new narratives. Shipping crates usually used for temporary storage and freight are transformed into containers for living, domestic cabinets rich in detail. The result plays with our ideas of value; the container becomes the content, a by-product is metamorphosed into the product.
