'Krattenkast' cabinet by Mark van der Gronden for Lensvelt

‘What we need is upcycling where old products are given more value not less,’ said Reiner Pilz of the German automation technology company Pilz GmbH in 1994, and by reusing multicolured, cast-off plastic crates which have no actual value on their own, Dutch designer Mark van der Gronden has given them a new purpose and, consequently, new value by creating his latest upcycled cabinet for the Breda-based manufacturer Lensvelt.

 

Each of the 'Krattenkast' cabinets is unique due to the varying number and arrangement of the crates

Called ‘Krattenkast’, the industrial-looking crate cabinet encompasses a variety of secondhand reclaimed containers which, enclosed within a black steel frame, form rows of drawers of differing sizes and colours.
