ABOUT

BoBoX is a modular lightweight storage system adapted to the needs of the flexible and dynamic urban lifestyle. The minimal do-it-yourself design uses a small set of extra thin and extra durable structural elements which offer a wide range of combinations and a playful user experience, minimizing resource use and offering greater value for the user. Multifunctional connecting elements secure the joints and ensure the possibility of mounting a door or back panel at each box. They can be easily added at any moment after mounting, or their position can be changed. The assembly and disassembly of the BoBoX modular storage system is tool-free.
