Designed to beautify or light up an empty or boring hallway. The wooden lid is the perfect place for the storage of e.g. keys and sunglasses. Lift the wooden lid and fill the basket with scarves, gloves or hats. The small objects that we carry tell our story and together form our individual distinctiveness. The cage family is inspired by behaviors. Where we put our objects in the home and how we store things. The Cage collection has a strong functional ambition while the pieces also become beautiful interior accessories.
