Nello il matto is a modular, multipurpose container that can be stacked and mounted horizontally or vertically in an infinite variety of ways. The containers come in seamless one, two, or three hole blocks. Each container is 24.5 cm deep by 24.5 cm high with the 1 hole 24.5 cm wide, the 2 hole 49 cm wide, and the 3 hole 73 cm wide. They are made of polyethylene. For the data sheet on the Nello il Matto, click here.
These containers look like gigantic Legos! The manufacturing process uses a unique rotational molding technique, giving an attractive and extremely durable finish. About $90 for the one hole, $135 for the two hole, and $165 for the three hole. Anyone know where to find them?
