State of Matters Midibox Lid

139 reviews
$34.30 SGD $49.00 SGD
Description

Designed and crafted in collaboration with local wood workers, these handcrafted lids are sturdy and designed to complement the Aykasa Maxibox and Midibox. They are finished with wood lacquer or mineral oil for easy cleaning and added resistance to abrasion, water, acids and stains.

The wooden lids are now available in birch and walnut. In the spirit of sustainability and wabi-sabi, we are excited to introduce our Restored and Upcycled Lids, with our original lids now called Natural Lids.

Specifications

Material (Natural/Restored): Sustainable birch plywood, finished with dark walnut stain and wood lacquer

Material (Upcycled): Reclaimed pine wood from upcycled wood pallets, finished with food grade white mineral oil for easy cleaning and added resistance to abrasion, water, acids and stains. Do note that there could be printing marks on the wooden planes, given their past life as cargo pallets. 

Designed and made in Singapore.

Upcycled

Designed in collaboration with Creuse to the dimensions of the Aykasa midi and maxiboxes for a snug fit. 

Thoughtfully handcrafted from reclaimed pine wood, these sturdy lids have natural wood markings and may have printing marks which tell a story that accompanies their previous life as cargo pallets. They are finished with a food grade white mineral oil for easy cleaning and added resistance to abrasion, water, acids and stains. 

Read more about the upcycling process on our blog.

Restored


At State of Matters, we believe that there is beauty in imperfection too. While fully functional, you may see some marks on the wooden surface of these lids.

Some birch plywood sheets come with patches while some do not. These patches (could be butterfly/oval/puzzle shaped) are a snug and flush replacement for naturally occurring knots in the timber. It may have been from a branch growing in that spot or a tear in the thin and fragile veneer. 

Restored Lids will typically have 1-2 of these patches, or minor scratches on the top side. 

With all things natural, there may be markings on the wood and minor aesthetic defects. We think it's a waste to throw these pieces of fully functional wood away, so we decided to shower them with a little more love and craft them into the Restored Lids.

Natural 

Is the Natural version free of scratches or patches?

The Natural version will not come with scratches or patches on the top side of the lid, but they might come with some of these on the under side. 

Do all lids look the same?

Birch plywood, similar to solid wood, does not have the same wood grains/patterns on all faces - each piece is unique and different depending on the tree harvested.

Practical, useful and pretty crate

I like that there are many colours to mix and match. Somehow all choices of colours will end up looking quite matchy. The 4 midi crates are placed on my scanteak ladder shelf that we bought years ago. The crates now hold toys and some Knick knacks the kids like to dump in. I would like to think the mess now looks a little more organised with a bit of an old school feel. Shld the crates get too dusty overtime, I think I’ll just rinse off the dust n dry it up.

  • I use the crates to store Haven’t thought of it.

Totally in love

The maxi crates are sturdier than I thought. It’s thicker than the midi crates and the finish is a lot smoother. I love the active lock version but unfortunately there are limited colors left so had to settle for the new version. The wooden lid is . A bit heavy though. But also means it’s good quality wood. So tempted to get more.

Excellent

I got the refurbished lids for my midiboxes and though I initially felt they were pricy, they are such good quality that I think they’re worth it! Looks great, nice weight to them and they really complement the boxes.

Aykasa Minibox and Lid

Bought 3 mini boxes and 1 lid, as I planned to stack 2 boxes to maximise space in the wardrobe. Very useful as it allows one side of the box to be removed for easy access to items at the lower layer. Got an extra one which I used with a lid to minimise dust. All in all, very functional and will re-purchase for other needs in future!

Sturdy!

Ordered the grey but was informed that it was out of stock so changed to get the black instead. Love that it’s sturdy, stackable and packs thin when not in use
