BY Janet Hall

Handmade in San Francisco by Héctor Pérez, the NeutraBox is a mimimalist modern mailbox “inspired by the principles of the De Stijl movement: a reduction to the essentials of form and color.” Pérez, who started out crafting mail boxes for his architect friends, fashions each piece using leftover scraps of galvanized sheet metal and acrylic from larger projects. The NeutraBox (NB-1) measures 7.5 inches high, 9.9 inches wide, and 15.75 inches deep and is available in red or black. Features include a galvanized metal shell, an acrylic access door, and flexible mounting options (the box can be mounted on a post, a railing, or embedded in a wall system); $199 directly from NeutraBox.
