Rhino BoxPrice: $49.00
Design by Karl Zahn.
This figural Rhino Box represents a 'power' animal - a totem for our individual ambition of idealism. Its simple and gestural depiction is intentional - allowing the symbolism of the animal to be maintained. With the addition of hinges, it has the ability to guard important small objects. On the shelf, it is sculpture. On the side table, it's a totem. On the counter, it offers a hiding spot.
The designer's name is branded inside each box.
Material(s): Sustainably harvested new growth Beech wood
Dimensions: 7" x 3.5" x 3"
Like this product, but...

There seems to be some glue left during the assembling process on the inner edge of the Rhino box. I was a bit disappointed because I purchased this as a gift to someone... Hope the quality gets improved in the future.
