Altdeutsche ChestPrice: $3,770.00
Design by Studio Job, 2011.
There's just something magical about a chest. Building on this nostalgic idea of rummaging through old chests to find treasured keepsakes, the Altdeutsche Chest is an intricately hand painted storage unit with symbols and patterns on its surface. The chest has a bottom drawer and liftable lid. Windup fish, skulls, antique keys, and other symbols hand painted on the chest tell a symbolic narrative of a beautiful, mysterious life. Constructed from solid pine and pine veneer and stained white, the chest makes the hunt for your family photo albums or well worn blankets all the more enjoyable and playful.

"Our design is about freedom. We think that design is a universal language spoken with shapes instead of words. In our design the important interaction is between onlooker and object. By looking at our objects, the onlooker looks directly into our eyes. In this sense our work is like a diary. Very intuitive and direct, we try to translate our experiences and ideas into an object or a collection."View other products by Studio Job
