Samuel Meijering - Box, Two Rolykit

Description
Samuel Meijering - Box, Two Rolykit
Netherlands - 1970-1979 - Plastic

The Rolykit is a hexagonal roll-up storage system. It was invented in 1973 by filmmaker Samuel Meijering.
Meijering was working on a film script when he was distracted by the clutter on his desk. He started thinking about a solution and invented a rollable storage system, the Rolykit.
The Rolykit can be rolled in one go, while still keeping the contents in all the compartments of this storage box in place. The 'secret' of the Rolykit is that every storage compartment only becomes accessible when it lies flat on a surface as it is unrolled. When rolling the storage compartments back together, the bottom of one compartment will become the lid of another. When rolled out, the length is approx. 107 cm, the height of the storage compartments varies from 3–5 cm. Rolled up, the height is 18 cm, the width 27.5 cm and the length 21 cm. The Rolykit weighs approx. 1.5 kg a piece. Offered here are two pieces.
