Rob Willems

Department: Man and Activity


The silhouette of a tree in a winter landscape and the structure formed by the branches; Rob Willemse has transformed these into his BranchBox. Because its shelves consist of flexible links, you can construct the cupboard in a number of ways. The back, inspired by a tree's growth rings, contains holes to fix the supports for the shelves. Because everyone will design their own BranchBox in their own way, each shelving unit will be unique. Just as in nature where every tree is different from the rest.
