Zagbox is a line of artistic containers made in the US from sustainably grown wood, which beautifully display and highlight the objects they hold.  They arrive flat packed, and rely on clever features cut into the wood to assemble easily without tools or fasteners.  Each is designed to be multipurpose, and we encourage users to come up with creative uses for them.

The boxes are designed to ship flat, which reduces shipping cost and impact, and the end user simply folds and snaps the pieces together to form the box (this takes about a minute).  To allow the boxes to quickly transform from flat to sturdy container, we combined unique design features including dovetail joints which snap into place with a satisfying click, and “living hinges” cut into the wood, which make it flexible.zagbox

We have spent a lot of time carefully crafting designs, sourcing materials, and locating suppliers in order to reduce the environmental impact of producing the boxes and to manufacture entirely in the US.


“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”  — William Morris

There are three Zagbox designs, and they share a similar architecture and design aesthetic employing wood living hinges and snap-together dovetail joint construction.  They arrive flat packed and are easily assembled and disassembled by hand.



We have been inspired by the example of companies like Patagonia, which consider customers, employees, and the environment in their decisions, and demonstrate that taking care of all stakeholders can pay off in the end.

Because of this, we have paid a considerable amount of attention to the environmental impact of the boxes and designed them to minimize impact through their entire life cycle:

  • Made of sustainably-produced wood (FSC certified) and natural shellac finish
  • Renewable energy used for production
  • Flat pack reduces packaging and fuel to transport
  • Biodegradable at end of life.

We hope to improve the sustainability of Zagbox even further in the future.  -Zagbox

Amazing work!  We are looking forward to having you!

Opening September 10: Killer Heels

Brooklyn Museum has another fabulous show!

Brooklyn Museum
Hot on the heels of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk is our upcoming exhibition Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe, on view September 10, 2014–February 15, 2015. (Opens to the public at 2 p.m. on September 10.)

Killer Heels explores fashion’s most provocative accessory, looking at the high-heeled shoe’s rich and varied history and its enduring place in our popular imagination. It features more than 160 heels on loan from world-famous designers, the renowned Brooklyn Museum costume collection housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Bata Shoe Museum. There are also six specially commissioned films inspired by high heels. So walk—or run—to see it!

“I wanted to make a shoe with an invisible heel. I looked down and there it was: The Eames chair leg from the chair I was sitting on. . . . What if the heel pretended to be not a part of the shoe but be part of the surroundings? This way the heel would be in disguise and in a way disappear. . . . The chair became a part of the shoe by the simple gesture of remix in design.”

—Rem D. Koolhaas, United Nude
