Wooden Boxes with Surface Structure
The Sand Boxes were designed by the designer Kai Linke for Auerberg. Kai Linke uses 'ready mades 'boxes, taking the wine boxes as a kind of raw material which then are sand blasted with self-made perforated sheet templates. The hard sand blasting removes the softer wood fibres and thereby exposes the harder wood lines. Thus a three-dimensional surface structure is created, which is overlaid by the geometric grid of perforated metal sheets.
The attractive surface fully and completely meets the requirements of Auerberg, that is to be radically subjective, following their own motives and being independent of industrial scales by pursuing new ways of design.
The boxes by Auerberg allow to be used, for example on the desktop to store pens, paper and other office supplies. In the kitchen the boxes can also be used to store tea and in the bath they serve to organise the cosmetics.
The Sand Boxes are available in a small version, a large version and also as a pair.
