If you’ve got the space at your next BBQ, the Boxman is a swanky alternative to the plebeian tent or – gag! – lowly picnic table. Made from a converted shipping container, you’re guaranteed to make your friends and neighbours feel inadequate.
Ample outlets are included should you wish to plug in a TV or other guest-wooing gadget. And no matter what sort of moral transgressions occur at your out of control box party, your guilt will be assuaged by knowing that the Boxman conversion process requires only 5 per cent of the energy it would take to melt down the shipping crate in the recycling process.
