The design of the FileBOX file cabinet was inspired by the drop down cabinet door systems used for different purposes. A metal file hanger is screwed to the specially designed sockets placed on the interior surfaces of the FileBOX drop down cabinet doors.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The FileBOX file cabinet has two different depth measurements, designed in a manner in which it can be used on two sides in the central parts of open offices or it can be used on one side in front of walls. The single sided FileBOX file cabinet is formed of four each drop down cabinet doors, whereas, the double sided FileBOX is composed of eight each drop down cabinet doors.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The FileBOX has sufficient storage capacity as well as esthetic appearance. Furthermore, the FileBOX used on one side has a depth of 23 cm that presents the opportunity of storing files in an extremely practical manner, especially in front of the walls in closed offices with narrow spaces.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project/design was started in January 2016 in Ankara, Turkey.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The melamine coated particleboard material, which is possible to be reused and whose wastes are almost completely recyclable, was preferred in the production of the FileBOX. The lower, upper, side and perpendicular central flat surfaces of The FileBOX file cabinets are assembled to each other in a practical manner at the place of use with the treenail and single headed socket with an eccentric fitting element, whereas, the horizontal and perpendicular central flat surfaces are assembled to each other with the treenail and double headed pivot eccentric fitting element. A single piece back is attached to the cabinets used on one side, whereas, four different pieces are attached to the double sided cabinets placed in the tenon cavity opened on the central parts of the flat surfaces.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions of assembled double sided FileBOX: 82 cm (w) x 45 cm (d) x 82+10 = 92 cm (h). The pieces for a total of 415 each double sided FileBOX boxes, each with a maximum weight of 25 kg can be placed and transported in a 20 cubic foot container.
