Wonderbox was born from the deep bond that has always existed between the Ceccotti Collezioni brand and the ability to preserve and hand down not only precious artefacts but also techniques, tools and knowledge belonging to our material culture. The company has an aura of memory, it is in its DNA, and Draw Studio shares and cultivates this passion in every project. This series of containers wants to embody this magic and enhance the act of preserving, of displaying, of inheriting. The very name ‘Wonderbox’ evokes the German term Wunderkammer, ‘chamber of wonders’, i.e. the room in which, starting in the 16th century, collectors kept their collections of rare and extraordinary objects from all over the world.

 

A key source of inspiration was observing Carlo Scarpa’s work as a museum designer. One of the many innovations he passed on to us lies in the great care with which he designed the museum display cases, giving the container a high intrinsic value, which in turn also enhanced the content, without ever overwhelming it. These containers are therefore intended as light and transparent ‘Precious Boxes’, which enclose the content but expose it to the viewer, thus making him or her share in the experience, beauty and passion of those who collected them. The sections of wood, rigorous and culminating in a trapezoidal cusp, are reminiscent of picture frames, that highlight the subjects. The result is a collection that is rational, dry yet refined in its construction. Attention to every smallest detail. As spectacular as the content it encloses.

Wonderbox is aimed at exigent clients who want a sober, refined, elegant piece to furnish their living area or office. Customers who care about keeping rarities, books, porcelain, shells, works of art, relying on a solution produced in the best Ceccotti tradition.
