Like fire extinguishers, a first aid kit is a necessary evil. Most of them are ugly and relegated to the junk drawer. However, for those who appreciate aesthetics, there are three great-looking wall-mountable boxes that have turned first aid into first class design.
Well-Designed First Aid Kits
Brands Radius, Montana and Cappellini offer well-designed first aid kits. Epitomizing form as function, these wall-mountable medicine boxes are safe, secure and store all the necessary items to treat and care for household injuries.
The First Aid Box
Designed by Ulf Thomas Solbach for Radius, a company dedicated to ensuring every single item is a unique and functional work of art, the First Aid Box is a great-looking stainless steel frame that securely mounts to a wall so that the kit is always clearly visible and to hand whenever needed.
It’s also easy to keep clean, ensuring the first aid kit always remains hygienic.It has a space cut out on the front which, combined with the red first aid box within, gives a clear indication of what’s inside.
