Since 1994 this storage unit has become a modern Swedish design classic.
It’s easy to identify furniture classics from the middle of the last century, but considerably more difficult to decide when more recent designs have become classics. The Snow series by ASPLUND has managed to defy this by becoming something very few furniture series can ever hope for; a modern classic in its own time.
The Snow series was purposely simple, in the same way that boxy 1970s Volvo cars look childlike in their design. The cutout handles provided the only decorative element, while also being functional by providing a comfortable grip.
