We absolutely love the ´Pop´ aesthetic of this unique tin can storage unit by Canadian artist/designer Cristina Covello.
The whole unit is hand fabricated and is composed of catering tin cans, laminated cereal box draws and painted wood tops. When we acquired the piece we assumed that it was part of a series. In order to find out more we contacted Christina directly, who now lives in Vancouver. We discovered that she made the unit in 2006 as part of a project whilst attending Sheridan College, Toronto. We also discovered that it was a complete one off project and was never intended as a series. Amusingly Christina also divulged that the tin cans came from the kitchens of the Royal York Hotel!
More details and a photograph of the unit can also be found on the excellent Canadian Design Resource website.
With special thanks to the talented Christina Covello for all her helpful info on the piece.
