I admit to being smitten by this modular storage concept, the brainchild of Spanish industrial designer Antxon Salvador. A BrickBox is solidly constructed from layered birch plywood. They come in a couple of sizes, lock neatly together, and can be stacked to form large bookcases, room dividers, and furniture. Need to move? The disassembled boxes are their own packing containers.
BrickBoxes are not inexpensive. A row or two of the large size (ten units) would set you back about $500, if they were for sale in the US. Then again, so would a quality shelf, which lacks the flexibility of the BrickBox system. Salvador hopes to have a North American sales agent soon.
