Tool Boxes | A Petersen
A toolbox can be just as beautiful as it is practical. Tool Boxes, designed by Line Depping, is a storage unit which, with subtle reference to the classic toolbox, offers a way to organize both collections and everyday items. And everyday use is exactly what Line Depping wants you to consider when choosing furniture for your home. Her work is a call for you to surround yourself with things you actually use and which speak to you in an aesthetic design language; things you enjoy seeing on a daily basis, year after year.
Tool Boxes consists of a metal frame with drawers that slide on hidden rails and can be pulled out from either side. The construction may look simple, but many hours of work in the cabinetmaking workshop go into each of the six drawers, which consists of seven parts.
The wood is carefully selected in either Oregon pine or quarter-sawn ash. The drawers are made by Getama in northern Jutland, and Mikkel Kjærholm does the welding. The ash version is colour graduated in the workshop on Kløvermarksvej with natural yellow pigment developed in collaboration with Linolie og Pigment in Haderslev.
