‘Curio’, a curiosity box for small objects and collections, is the second design in the series ‘Virtu’. Just like its predecessor (the writing desk ‘Scrinium’) ‘Curio’ combines storage space with displaying ones cherished belongings. Smoke glass tunnels form the shells for three small wooden drawers, giving a misty view on the stored items inside.
About De Intuïtiefabriek
Amsterdam-based design studio De Intuïtiefabriek (“The Intuition Factory”) began after Amba Molly, Carolina Wilcke, Eefiene Bolhuis, and Eva Gevaert graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009. The four young women realized they shared opinions about material and design practice and launched their first project in 2010—a cityscape of tableware. Since then, they’ve made everything from colored medicine cabinets to writing desks to glazed dishes. De Intuitïefabriek describes their own work as “pure, precise and almost fragile feeling.”
