Trinity Box System

Henry Tao

My design concept is a new box system which uses Loll’s material and structures to redefine storage in the entryway. The Trinity Box System is for easy fabrication using Loll’s core competency in manufacturing. The design only employs two different elements needed to build the boxes. Three boxes become a set, and sets can be combined into more sets to create hundreds of different positive and negative spaces.


The stair-shaped boxes system concept came from the Japanese entry space called “Genkan”. They try to separate the internal and external space by using different height of floors. After following the Vignelli thoery to simplify the shape of these boxes, I figured out that when you remove one of the boxes in the modular, it gives more possible options to combine and play the system.
