The Man Behind 101BOX.es
The concept of 101BOX.es was born from an idea that struck company director Kevin Bursnall years ago while involved with the production of Home Show Expo’s. With many years of experience constructing boxes from bamboo panels for display purposes, Kevin spent some time developing a practical design to his own specifications which was both simplistic and elegant.
Beginning by using his initial design to display decor products around his own home, he was inspired with further ideas for dynamic variations and accessorising the product to expand on its functionality. The incredible versatility of this product being modular furniture that can be used in several ways and then re-used, re-configured or expanded on as needed.
After experimenting with different types of bamboo panels, these were found be too weighty. Kevin knew he needed a material that was sustainable, strong, attractive and not made of chipboard or laminate products, so he began testing Paulownia timber. This proved to be the perfect type of timber to use, particularly for shipping, given how light the materials were.
From there, the concept really started to take off – and thus, 101BOX.es were born!
