Yes, we posted this years ago (2008!), but this multipurpose unit is still pretty impressive. It serves as a detachable file cabinet, a stool, a rolling cart and, in multiples, even stackable shelves. It’s also recyclable once the plastic wheels are removed, though for the price, you’d be better off selling it to a fellow design aficionado.
The cantilevered top allows the Smith to be hung from a table.
Smith is available in four functional colors.
Designed by Jonathan Olivares, 2007
Manufacturer: Danese Milano
W: 12.6″, D: 15.7″
Seat H: 18″
“This hybrid object is useful at a desk, a bedside, a sofa or a dining table and avoids classification into one specific typology. Ultimately it is the user who will come to define Smith through its use.”
