|Today marks the official release of Crates, a unique modular storage system that puts a modern twist on the old standby milk crate. Crates provides maximum flexibility when creating your personal space so you can reinvent your living area or dorm room, adding more storage to those tight places. This new product and its various accessories were designed and developed by the Quirky online community and are proudly made in the USA.
Use your imagination! Build your own storage solutions with infinite combinations like media consoles or book cases. There are 10 accessories to customize your storage system including metal casters for mobility or wooden legs to keep it steady. Cord clips manage your cables and hooks are available for hanging items like headphones and keys. Crates has separate drawers and shelves to keep things organized or add the corkboard and dry erase side panels to post notes, photos and messages. You can even add a cushion to turn your crate in to seat. Create your own dream room with endless possibilities!
|Crates is Quirky’s 315th product developed since the company’s launch in June 2009. The reinvention of the milk crate was the dream of Jenny Drinkard, a 25 year old design student from Atlanta, GA with the help of 1791 influencers from the Quirky community. Quirky makes invention accessible by partnering with creative people around the world to bring new products to life.
