Pop Up Box in a Crate

It’s an art gallery! In a nutshell, it’s both a shipping container for artwork and a gallery for the artwork once it reaches it’s destination. Inspired by the work of Marcel Duschamp: perhaps you’ve heard of him. Duschamp created 24 suitcases which he brought with him to display his works of art to places where it would have been unrealistic to bring their larger counterparts. In the same way, this “Box in a Crate” is made in such a way that it might be opened and displayed in a wild array of places, indoors and out.

Each “Box in a Crate” consists of 12 adjacent soft-hinged panels, kind of like a totally unfolded milk carton, minus the milk. The flexibility of the system allows for multiple configurations which is totally great if you’ve got lots of different kinds of art and whatnot.

Such a lovely gallery! I wonder what the strangest dude and artist basically I’ve ever seen or heard of (Marcel Duschamp) would think? He’d probably think about it for a very long time while spinning a bicycle wheel attached to the top of a stool. Straight up.
