The Vitra Toolbox has long proven a favourite accessory of design lovers around the world. With its 8 compartments and generous layout, the Toolbox has proven a versatile item, whether on a desk, in a bathroom as a tidy, or maybe in a kitchen holding utensils. The new RE iteration of the iconic Vitra Toolbox is produced from recycled material and is 100% recyclable in and of itself. The Toolbox Re is available in a wide range of finishes, some with characterful speckles, a by-product of the recycling process involved in the manufacture of the piece, rendering each Toolbox wholly unique from one another.
The RE series from Vitra acts as a statement of intent regarding the future of furniture and homeware production.
