A Boxai is a box with a telescoping lid. It is covered in beautiful images that Photoflow seamlessly over every surface. That's what makes a Boxai unique. It's sold flat and ready to fold. It comes with a Matching Note Card that's blank inside, for your personal message. This note card fits inside the Boxai and is the perfect size for a Store Gift Card.
Photoflow is a unique design innovation based on kirigami. Kirigami is a traditional Japanese paper art form that involves not only folding, but cutting. Images appear to flow seamlessly over every surface of a Boxai, both inside and out.
“We all hunger for beauty. After decades working in fine art, I became passionate about finding an affordable way to satisfy people’s longing for it.
I set myself the challenge of producing an object that was not only beautiful, but useful. I wanted it to leave a light footprint on the world.
After years of refining my ideas, I was able to marry my love of art, photography, origami, and kirigami to create Boxai.”
