Jack in the box was created for the course “Homo Ludens” (trans. The Playing Man) hosted by the School of Arts and Crafts in Gothenburg, Sweden. The goal was to create a playful piece of furniture for the school’s exebition at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. By cranking the handle, a frequent tapping sound will start and the shelfsystem hidden inside the solid body will appear beneath the box. The system contains of three 40x20cm (dubbelkolla) shelves of oak wood. Loving it!
