The Crates Transforming Furniture

May 6, 2014

We all have a friend like Lee. See, we don’t really like Lee that much (every greeting from him is a solid punch in the arm), but he helped us move once, and we know he’d do it again if we asked. That level of manual labor love is tough to find. But now, with The Crates, we just might be able to cut Lee loose.

The Crates is a series of furniture pieces that magically transform into, well, crates. Crates, as you may have guessed, are much easier to move then computer desks, beds, bookshelves, dressers, and just about everything else. Beijing designer Naihan Li came up with this brilliant concept, and to acquire Naihan as a friend, we’d gladly trade Lee and two acquaintances to be named later. No word yet about pricing or when these items will become available, but we can wait. So can Lee. [Purchase]
