How many times have you almost gone crazy looking for something when it ends up being right in front of your face the whole time? Well I think that’s the idea behind these Picture Frame Boxes. If I remember correctly from countless movies, when a cat burglar breaks into your home they’ll make sure to check behind every painting and picture looking for your safe. But what they won’t realize is that your prized possessions and important documents are actually hidden in the frames themselves.
Of course I don’t think that’s what Tim Parsons had in mind when he created the Picture Frame Box, particularly since they’re lacking any kind of locking mechanism, but they seem pretty easy to repurpose. The frames are available in A3 or A4 sizes which makes them particularly useful for storing documents, but smaller items should be able to squeeze in there as well. You can find them on the thorsten van elten website for about $109 for the A4 version and aboout $128 for the A3 one.
