Last summer, I enthused about this mailbox design by DIY designer Hector Perez. Well, Hector got in touch with me to let me know that his mailbox business is now official — you can order your own NB-1 modern mailbox from Neutra Box, his online store. Hector says:
“I’m a professional composer, believe it or not. I own a recording studio in SF decked out in original vintage mid-century furnishings. And on the side, I make mailboxes! I make them by hand using left over sheet metal and acrylic scraps from large projects. I only use American made material and try to make it as green as possible. I started making them for architect friends and then it turned into this. Each box comes with a certificate of authenticity, since a couple of my geeky collector friends insisted on it, LOL.”
Hector, we’re delighted that you’ve turned your great design into a side business and we’re happy to pass the word along! Thanks for writing! — Mary T.
