Behind Creative Collision




When I first saw this crates project I was hesitant to even click it. Although a rather neat office space was created, would someone actually want to work around and about the wooden pallet feeling? The office comes complete with a crate wall divider (which I'm sure has no acoustic anything) and a set of perilous crate stairs.

Imagine walking around your office and 'desk space' with the thud and creak of the wood at every step. 

It's not that I don't like the reappropriation of used or common materials. If only there was a cleanness to the design or if the unit was transformed so you almost couldn't even tell it was a wooden crate (see the post where chopsticks transcend themselves in a chair design). There's a reason materials are dressed and prepared, like the Pacific notion of 'teu' - creating a pureness in the material before using it.
