These simple benches and boxes pack a two-in-one punch for workspaces.
Poppin‘s Box Seat hit the market in April 2015; when they realized how popular it was, they re-engineered it and started selling a Box Bench, too. Both come in Poppin’s trademark spectrum of bright colors and are a practical solution for an extra bit of storage and seating.

How will the products impact the workplace?
Multi-functionality meets style with Poppin’s Box Seat and Box Bench — storage boxes one minute, sturdy seats the next. The Box Bench is strong enough to hold up to 275 pounds, and it is collapsible and portable for clutter corralling and impromptu meetings.
How do the products contribute to “new ways of working”?
Employees can pull up a seat for a quick brainstorm, and throw items inside to save space and keep their workspace a clutter-free zone. It’s a simple, sturdy solution that is portable and flexible for the office.
Can you tell a story/give an example of a client who has used the product effectively?
Poppin worked with Homepolish as they redesigned the ClassPass office, a fitness startup also based in NYC. Each employee got a Box Seat in aqua — perfect for storing sneakers and gym clothes, or to use for collaborating with coworkers.

What was the inspiration behind the product?
Everyone needs an affordable solution to store disparate things. There are similar products in the market but by focusing on fit and finish, Poppin has found the right material for the right price. And when we saw how popular our Box Seat was, we re-engineered the interior construction to make sure the larger format was still able to support the weight. More storage with the same dual benefits.

Seat: April 2015, Bench: September 2015
