Aichi Gift Box

Protocol and Corporate giftware
In 2005,  Scarab Studio Wood and REB Design were commissioned by the WA Government to collaborate on the design and production of a prestigious timber gift to be presented by Premier Geoff Gallop, at the World Expo Aichi, Japan.  The gift giving experience from a Japanese cultural perspective informed the design process and we developed an innovative hybrid technique to make the tightly curved forms in Jarrah and Blackbutt veneer.

Design Institute of Australia Award
Over 400 of the gift boxes were produced and the Aichi gift box project was hailed as a resounding success, with praise from the Premier himself and the receipt of a prestigious Design Institute of Australia award.
