The Modern Houses are part of the Nepal Projects by Menu. The project was created in collaboration with the aid organisation Danida and supports young women in one of the poorest regions of the world by generating new jobs with fair working conditions.
The modern houses are casings in house form, which are made of cardboard and then covered with cotton
This gives the houses not only a beautiful appearance, but also a special feel. The modern houses in different sizes are suitable for storage of small items of various kinds: paper clips, jewelry or small souvenirs can be stowed away in style.
The roof serves as a lid, that can be removed completely. Functional and aesthetic aspects are equally served with this product that is not only a storage box, but also a decorative element for every living room.
The minimalist design comes from the Note Design Studio, while the production of the houses takes place in Nepal in order to support local women and craftsmen. With regard to traditional production methods, the houses were designed to create a product that can be manufactured locally. The combination of Scandinavian design and traditional Nepalese handicraft makes the Modern Houses by Menu a special home accessory with a fair character.
The hand-crafted houses from the Nepal Collection are available in two different versions with a traditional pitched roof or as modern Bauhaus variation in different colors.
