Everyone loves to play with a cardboard box. It’s a well known fact that children get enormous pleasure playing with and up-cycling cardboard boxes into wonderful flying machines, vehicles, buildings, monsters etc
Fellowes recently commissioned British artist, Chris Gilmour, to have a play with some of their flat pack boxes. Using mainly glue, a sharp knife and their strong corrugated cardboard storage boxes he recreated some amazing City scapes including Big Ben, Bradenburg Gate and the Eiffel Tower.
Fellowes commissioned the sculptures to coincide with the re-branding of its storage and organisation range from R-kive (get the pun?) to the more global Bankers Box Brand.
The finished replicas of Paris, Berlin and London are stunning and so worth a peek. You can watch all the cities being built in this short video.
Feeling inspired? Then pop over to the Bankers Box website and down load some templates to help you build Big Ben, a London Bus or a Town House.
We had a go at making the Town House and London Bus using some storage boxes Fellowes sent us.
I’m rather pleased with the outcome.
The templates don’t include dimensions and need fine tuning (especially the bus) but they give some good rough guidelines and a bit of customisation is all part of the building fun.
Who knew flat pack boxes could be so exciting? We had a new tenant in our town house almost immediately.
We were sent some Bankers Boxes for the purpose of writing up this post.
