Shkatulka (шкатулка), a well designed storage kit by Russian illustrator and designer Lesha Galkin.
Lesha Galkin is a Russian product designer and illustrator who lives in St. Petersburg. For a group exhibition at the Milan furniture fair in 2014, Lesha Galkin has designed this storage kit named ‘Shkatulka’. Shkatulka (Cyrillic: шкатулка) is the Russian word for casket. Caskets with small secret drawers or double bottoms were popular in Russia in ancient times to store valuable and important items. Lesha Galkin’s storage kit ‘Shkatulka’ is based on the idea of keeping all important things in one place. This set of various modules was made from marble and wood. All individual modules can be combined in different ways.
All woodworks were made by Pavel Brick and Matthias Marte of Verstak. The marble parts were made by Aleksandr Baharev of Formadimarmo. You can find more of Lesha Galkin’s creative work on her website, just have a look here.
