Koloro-wagon by Torafu Architects for Ichiro
Perfect for kids toys and craft tools, the Koloro-wagon is a mobile storage unit made up of three stackable boxes.
Each plywood storage box has a set of handles, so that the boxes can be separated and carried around like shopping baskets. When the handles are set straight, they form the upright structure for the stack.
The bottom box is equipped with a set of wheels so that the stack can be easily moved around.
