These boxes are so amazingly designed with just a lift of the handle, it will expand sideway or upwards. By Andrew Haythornthwaite.

During a collaborative workshop organized by Dutch furniture company Arco, New Zealand-born Okay Studio member Andrew Haythornthwaite created Autoboxes, taking mechanical cues from the children’s toy jack-in-the-box, this project explores structures that can expand and contract with an easy gesture. The two resulting manifestations convert storage objects into display units by simply turning a handle, one expanding horizontally and the other vertically.
