Shkatulka. This little Russian word refers to a “casket” with magical properties: a mechanism of secret opening. Lesha Galkin, using the history of the safes mechanisms and the mystery that fills every secret compartment, built a modular desk storage in which we can find a collection of boxes and elements organized, made from materials such as marble, copper and wood.
Shkatulka featured in the Izba collection, which has been exhibited at the Milan design week in 2014, is not a mysterious box to be filled with treasures and jewels, but it’s pen & paper traditional organizer. The box closes with all elements built inside, but when it’s unlocked and opened, allows the user to organize his pencils in the corrugated marble that prevents them to drop and to put other objects, such as books, agendas and rulers, in the different available boxes, including the bigger one that is the casket itself.
This crafted and suburb stationary modular desk organizer, with a surprise element, when opened gives us way to gather all the necessary elements to our offices, but when it’s closed turns our whole stationery material into something totally precious and protected.
