Design Ideas began in 1983, when a brother and sister team still in
college wanted to create a wire basket for transporting toiletries from
the bedroom to the bathroom in college dormitories.
Unfortunately, the only option they had at the time was a plastic
basket, which accumulated some strange form of “third life form” over
time thanks to soap scum. But by looking at what people needed in their
everyday life, Andy and Alice managed to come up with their wire basket.
The Design Ideas of today (which still includes Andy and Alice) continue
to take their cue from what everyday people need – as is evident in
their Cabo organiser wares. Reflective of their old basket idea, these
storage containers – including pen cups, desk organisers and letter
holders – are a clean way to organise yourself with an industrial edge.
Cabo is all about standing the test of time, remaining both nostalgic
Each piece is made from very strong oxidised wire, so that you don’t grow a “third life form” of your own!
