Inspired by Wabi-Sabi

Our boxes embrace a simple aesthetic, the materials we use are humble and sustainable. We work around the beauty of simple details and our design origins are based on a way of understanding and living that appreciates nature and materials that age and weather. Our flat packed designs are specially designed to support the needs of some of our vulnerable urban wildlife: birds, bats and bees.
