Robox shelving

Robox_Fabio Novembre_Casamania_2011_2

The Robox by Fabio Novembre is a shelving unit in the shape of, you guessed it, a robot.

The shelving unit is composed of several boxes mix-matched together to create the form. What makes this shelf adorable, is that a red box is placed where, anatomically, the heart would be. The unit comes in different colors, but the heart is always there.

Interestingly, on the top of the Robox is a picture frame in substitution of another shelf. Whether you place a photo of yourself, or a picture of an important life event, the Robox’s head holds your memories, just like a human brain would. It is reminiscent of the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz.
