A Toolbox with Scandinavian Style

Designed by Danish firm Frama, this toolbox may prefer inside jobs.

The pared-down form and spare lines of Frama Toolbox, designed by Kristian Nørhave for the Danish firm Frama, resembles a classic toolbox. Frama's iteration is really more of a multipurpose container, though, that can be flipped to hold everything from magazines to files, even tools. But whatever you store in it, we think you'll agree, Frama's box is too pretty to be kept hidden in the garage.

Above: Made from birch plywood, Frama's Toolbox comes in natural, black, or terra cotta. It is currently for sale by contacting Munk, but will be more widely available in June; €140.
