Round diamonds, calibrated to achieve the maximum in fire and brilliance, set the standard for all cuts. With this in mind fledgling design star studio Fort Standard chose it for its wooden Diamond Box. Hide a precious gem or other special item inside. The crown and base of this beech wood box are embedded with tiny magnets for a seamless and secure hideaway.
Be it something as pocket-sized as this Diamond Box or the Sphere Bottle Opener (also at A+R) or as weighty as a custom marble-based dining table or expansive as one of their onsite installations for stores and events, the work conceived by Gregory Buntain and Ian Collings of the New York industrial design studio Fort Standard continues to wow us and the many companies who've sought their talents, among them All-Clad, Warby Parker and Steven Alan and MoMA PS1. The Diamond Box was manufactured by fellow New Yorkers Areaware.
