You must be familiar with the several beauty boxes that are on the market, but did you know of the existence of the Designer Box?
It is based on the same principle of a monthly subscription. The content consists of one design object by a different designer. This can be a mirror, a vase, a lamp…anything that can be categorized as a design object and fits in the equally design-ish, numbered box. It’s also a collector’s item for € 29 per month! And a great idea for a gift. You can decide if you take on a subscription for 3, 6 or 12 months.
I received the ’emerald’ cut diamond mirror by Sam Baron; a 15×21 cm polished table mirror shaped like a gem inspired by the renowned 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, starring Marilyn Monroe in her quintessential role, a lover of gentlemen and diamonds. Baron chose the diamond as a symbol of eternity, perfection and purity.
Sam Baron was the first designer invited by Designer Box to create an object, and many other upcoming and well known designers follow his footsteps.
