Apple boxes are a staple of photography and film studios. Professionals use apple boxes on a daily basis to add height to a set, to prop up objects, to stand on or sit on, or to stack. It is from the simple, functional object that I got the idea to elevate the box into a piece of furniture. One can even see what appears to be proto-applebox in Jacque-Louis David’s "The Death of Marat" (1793). In the 1950s Le Corbusier made a fine furniture variant of the apple box. I wanted to take this adaptive shape and to create a hand-made, versatile, personally meaningful but customizable object that other people could use in their daily lives. It is made to be used as a stool, side table, seating surface, or a sculptural object. The prototype is solid oak with an opening on only one side which allows for portability, while the five other surfaces allow for maximum number of possible uses.
