Boxetti collection is one of the most fancy furniture designs I’ve ever seen. It is driven by three basic design principles – functionality, advanced technologies and contemporary aesthetics of minimalism. Each of Boxetti modules is designed to achieve maximum efficiency of particular demands for functionality and suitability. The capability of the modules to be transformed into compactly solid blocks is essential for the design concept in order to obtain an unobstructed and comfortable space – free of uselessness.
One of the products part of this collection is the Boxetti Private which contains a set of basic bedroom functions –a double bed, night stand and a wardrobe. The foldaway bed platform is automatically lifted by a remote control, together with a built-in night stand. The unit is equipped with a spotlight and an ambience lighting fixture above the headboard. The integrated wardrobe consists of six sections including shelves, drawers and a clothes rail.
Another part of this collection is the Boxetti Practice, a manual foldaway desk top with a block of drawers, a bookshelves system and a upholstered chill-out niche for a more relaxed practice, equipped with a smaller adjustable desk top.

The compact DeskBox is the handiwork of Yael Mer and Shay Akalay, a young Israeli duo who founded their London-based studio Raw Edges shortly after graduating from the Royal College of Art. Last year, they pitched a similar concept to the Dutch manufacturer Arco: a bread boxwith a hinge mechanism inspired by those found on sewing-machine boxes. “Arco used to produce these kind of traditional wooden sewing boxes more than 100 years ago, we took the same mechanism and applied it toward more of an up-to-date use.”
The desk version is made from a combination of metal, for the wall base, and wood, for a warm work surface. “We wanted to make it as light-looking as possible and also to have the cost as low as possible, so the DeskBox will not only end up on magazine pages but at people’s homes,” Akalay says. But that didn’t mean scrapping the details. When the desk is closed, it still provides ample space for writing notes, with a small hole for a single-pencil holder; when open, it features two compartments and a cutout for routing electrical wires. Akalay assures us that it can withstand the weight of a laptop and a few books. “I guess there would be a limit, but there won’t be any problem for any normal use … of a desk.”
