The friendly Guerilla containers

The visual strangeness of these containers is only amplified by their background story. They have a design inspired by wartime trenches and they managed to turn something directly related to war into something playful and fun. The Guerilla containers were created by Stone Design and they are actually very versatile.

Their main use is as containers but they can also serve as room dividers or seating units. The concept behind the design is very simple and you might think that it’s a very common idea to wrap a drawer into friendly textiles. Well… the beauty of these containers is that they feel strange and familiar at the same time because they put together two basic elements. These extremely versatile objects or pieces of furniture are also fun to play with. You can assemble and disassemble the trench as you want and you can use the containers to build all sorts of structures. You can place them anywhere you want and they can change the way you room look like in a minute.

The Guerilla containers also have the advantage of being child-friendly. The box and drawer are made of wood and the wrapping case is made of hand-sewn fabric that imitates the style and texture of coffee sacks. They are made of 85% cotton and 15% polyester. They are ideal for informal decors and they could also be great additions to the playroom. Use them to store small objects and toys and also as stools or room dividers. They can fulfill two or even three functions at the same time.
