London-based designer Tomás Alonso has fashioned a collection comprising of a series of containers of basic geometric shape, colour and size. These containers are not designed to be used solely for a prescribed function, rather to be freely arranged according to each varying context.
This contemporary range offers total freedom of use, whether the containers act as desktop storage devices, simple ornaments or for serving food at the dining table, Alonso is highlighting that versatility and choice are paramount.
For example, this Tray can be used as a desk object to hold pens or as a trivet.
