Bathroom Toolbox


Talco produce metal tool boxes in the west midlands with a relatively low perceived value. We developed this bathroom cabinet to be manufacturable using the companies existing manufacturing capability.. The project was conceived to offer an established British manufacturing company new market opportunities. Where a toolbox would normally wholesale at £8, we thought a bathroom cabinet might wholesale at £25 to home-ware retailers. The higher perceived value increases the profit whilst working in similar materials and production techniques.

The toolbox cabinet also makes reference to the fact that a bathroom is full of tools for personal maintenance.

Designed in collaboration with Carl Clerkin.

    We produced a small number but sold these. There is no current production unfortunately. If you’d like to know more about it, please email me. W

    Hi WIlliam

    I found an old tear from a magazine I’d kept of your tool box and found it again today and still love it…. I see you didn’t continue with production of,this but I’d be really interested if you could be persuaded to do a small run again?
    Hopefully yours!
