With the advancements in laptop and tablet technology it seems only logical that a designer would come up with a new briefcase design that would do more than just hold some paper, pens and literature. Scottish designer Tyrone Stoddart has designed a kit that transforms a briefcase into office furniture.
The BOXED kit contains a few pieces that can be assembled to make a height adjustable desk, two stools and a lamp. After you have used it, it can then be disassembled and packed away into a case for the next portable meeting. I guess in good weather you could take it out into the garden and work from a laptop there?
The kit is made from ash tree timber. Stoddart is also bundling a small packet of ash seeds with every Boxed Kit to try and raise awareness about Chalara, a disease which is killing ash trees. You can plant the seeds to help nature grow what was taken to build the kit.
