a box with possibilities

a study about storing since our childhood, we like to keep things, sometimes in a secret box. the project started when we were asked to design storage (for artworks and other stuff). There are two occasions/incidents that occurred to start the ideation: - a scene from Mr. Bean the series: when he was about to pack everything to small luggage, have to cut everything to smaller pieces so all can fit, but then actually he has bigger luggage. -- scale matters, because it will somehow define the size - old steel box, old luggage, a box of ‘kerupuk aci’, etc these boxes were treated (designed) with a lot of thought about details, opening, function, use, finishing, handling, etc Typology of storage on a big scale maybe starts from container to factory storage, hangar. The shapes and systems are totally defined by their function, intended use, and space efficiency factor. In this case, if the user may vary, maybe having a lot of possibilities would be a content approach. The idea grows into questions about what else that is also possible to be stored, when, how big, how small, how temporary, how permanent, and so on and so forth. Perhaps this space can also store, accommodate some activities, now or in the future. This is a study of the possibilities, and how to store. . completed in 2020
